Personally I am not a fan of tinsel.  Or garland.

 Nope, no Tinsel for me!! Not only because I dont like it, but our ferrets would probably try and eat it, which would be very very bad!

I don't use tinsel, my hubby likes it but I can never get it to look right and I'm afraid my cat will eat it, which would not be good!

We did when I was growing up, but with 3 small babies we figured it was safest not to cause they would probably eat it LOL

Yes, I am using it this year.  Don't use it every year but the tree just needed something so I added tinsel.  Looks great!!

NO, we don't use it, in fact my 11 year old had no idea what it was.  I had to take her to the store and show her.

no do not use it, I am a garland user, I have a cat and 8 dogs and they would eat it.

We usually use tinsel but this year we went with garland instead because we have a pre-toddler in the house.

Do they still sell tinsel? LOL. As a kid our tree looked like a huge ball of aluminum foil because my  mom put about 10 boxes of tinsel on it every year. And I had to keep our cats away from it because they'd try to eat it. And it would get everywhere and wrap around the vacuum cleaner bar. I never used tinsel when I moved out into my own place and never will! lol.

I usually use tinsel but I just saw a reply from a mom who has 8 dogs. I have a St. Bernard, who doesn't normally bother the tree, but my DD got a new dog the beginning of this year. Her dog is a Mini-Pinscher and she gets into everything! So this year I think I will pass on the tinsel. DH doesn't like it anyways haha!
