Do you have an Artifical tree or do you Buy a live tree?

I have a 7 feet tall fake tree. I really don't have the room for it...Would it be so bad to just but one of those really small trees from walmart..and set it on something?? When do you put your up?

  • we have a fake one. I dont want my kid eating the pine needles from a real one. which he would. eww. Plus I dont want to fuss with the fire hazards. So I buy the pre~light one from walmart. I love it so easy and no bugs to worry about either. I set mine up right before Thanksgiving I think it helps add to the "ambiance" :) of thanksgiving and what comes next.

  • I always get a real tree and the biggest one the living room can afford. I love the smell of real christmas trees, they are more work but I think they are worth it and it always goes up the first weekend in December when all the decorations go up too.

  • Right after Thanksgiving, we put up a fake tree. My husband and step son have KILLER allergies and both have to take prescription medication, so I don't like to put up real trees just as a precaution. This year however, we are thinking of putting up a smaller tree on a table since my daughter will be ten months old. I don't really want her to play with it and I am scared she may pull it down or something like that.

  • Artifical; we did the whole cut your own tree thing down a few times but they are so messy; they do smell nice though!

  • I don't like the smell of real trees, so we have had a fake tree for years.

  • We use fake trees for now. Maybe when the kids are old enough to appreciate a REAL one we will get them. But I think after they move out we will just put lights on a cactus and call it good lol:)

  • we have one of the small 3 ft one's from wal mart that has the fiber optic lights in it. our living room is pretty small so we just bought that and put it on a card table. we did that last year before we had DD and will do it again this year because she is rolling around and will definately get into a bigger tree. when she gets older and starts to understand things we will probably be getting a bigger tree.
