  • Fake becuase I don't want to kill a tree or buy a tree every year.

  • Nothing is better than a live tree since it not only looks nice it smells nice too.

  • Real. Going up a mountain and cutting our own is part of our holiday traditions. Too much fun, wouldn't trade it. :)

  • I'm allergic to both actually. I have an allergy to Pine, but the chemicals in the fake ones make me just as sick... IF and when we get a tree, which we haven't done in years, we get a small 1-2 foot one in a pot so that we can replant it in the spring. It's small enough at that size that it doesn't bother my allergies to much and I don't feel guilty about killing a tree. Plus, it's healthier for the family...

  • Definitely a real tree. Ex made me get a fake one once & I threw it away. Only real trees for me.

  • Real. Last year, we couldn't because of the kid and the cat, so we got a big nice wreath and put decorations and lights on it, so we at least had the feel and the smell.

  • I like the convenience of a fake tree but love the smell of a real one... So my DH usually picks up a few branches from the place around here that sales trees and we stick the branches in the tree
