  • Oh, we have an artificial tree for several reasons.

    1. Dh is allergic to trees and tree sap
    2. We have dogs, which would drink up all the water, making it a pain and also a fire hazard
    3. The friggin pine needles stuck in the carpet for MONTHS!!! gggrrrrrrr

    I love my 6.5ft pre-lit tree!

  • Even if you have a fake tree you have to be careful to seal it up tight when you store it or it will be dusty and disgusting when you first take it out of the box next time.
