  • Its so hard to find a decent fake tree wothout spending lots of money. I prefer real, yes they are messy but the look and the smell! Mmm. Plus its a tradition to go hunt down a tree together every year and decorate it. Its so much fun.

  • Fake. The real trees make a big mess.

  • Real... I love the smell. I can deal with vacuuming up some pine needles. A fake one is just not the same.

  • I have to vote for Fake. For a couple of reasons actually including allergies & the mess of losing needles. Not to mention, I don't even like having to haul the tree down from our attic, let alone hiking out to get one in snow and mess, and then dragging that sucker out of the woods!

  • Real all the way!! I love the tradition of going and hunting for the "perfect" tree with the family, then cutting down and dragging it to the car.The place were we get ours has a little cabin and they offer you hot apple cider when you are done. I love making the memories!!
    Then you have the real scent off the tree..I love it!!

  • I love real trees, but unfortunately I have to have fake due to allergies. The only good thing about having a fake one is I can have it up longer (from Thanksgiving weekend thru new year) and it does not make a big mess with needles.
