  • I love the smell and look of a real tree. I hate real trees and think they are a fire hazard. Thank goodness there are real looking artificial trees and sprays to gi a scent.


    Does anyone remember the white trees and the color wheel light tha changed the color of the tree?

  • We had a green one with the color wheel. Threw it out after a year. The branches were too flimsy to hold up ornaments, which is ironic because that was the same year we got DS's first ornament - a Snoopy.

  • I love the smell and feel of a real tree, but we've gone with an artificial one for economic reasons during the past few years.

  • We usually have one of each. Artificial in the bay window in the front, real one in the family room.

  • One of each! Big real tree in the family room, smaller artificial tree in the basement.
