  • Fake because it's what I grew up with...and my mom's allergic to the real ones so she wouldn't be able to come visit if we had a real tree

  • Mold is the problem with most outdoor trees. So if you are allergic to mold, buy an artificial one.

  • Fake, because its a one time investment that I can use multiple times, plus no mess to cleanup....plus the lights come built in!

    I do think I need to buy some pine scented candles or incense, because I do miss that smell..

  • I wouuld prefer a real one but for practical reasons we are having a fake one this year. I have a grandson who is walking but falls over alot and a neice who is nearly walking, so landing on pine needles would not be fun, plus a bulldog who is scared of pine needles!

  • I have an artifical but growing up I always had a wonderfully beautiful green christmas tree. It was lovely to look at since every one was different. Artificial trees have no fresh outdoorsy smell, and don't shed their needles but I am still enjoyed having a live tree.
