I've got a prelit fake one. I like that I don't have to buy a real one every year, string it up with lights, keep it watered, and sweep up all the needles that fall. Plus, my fake one is the perfect shape and size. The only con is that the real ones do smell nice.

 I have a fake tree and I love it! Yes real trees are nice but you replace every year, and those pine needles get everywhere. I had 1 maybe 2 as a kid and I hated that tree. I didnt want to touch it and we had to replace so much because of the sap. Thankfully hubby is allergic to Pine so I get to have my fake tree :)

oh and did I meantion we didnt know that my brother and step dad was allergic UNTIL we had a real tree LOL oops nice goin mom!

 I saw that they now make sents you can spray on your tree to make it smell like pine.

We used to do a real one every year but last year I bought one from Lowes after Christmas for 70% off so we're gonna try that this year.

I have always used a fake tree up until Vince and I got together. He has fond memories of picking out a real tree every year, so now we load everyone up into the Princess Van (my girls named it years ago) and go search for the perfect tree. They also love watching us tie it to the top of the Princess Van, apparently that is hilarious.

It is awesome to see your kids' faces light up when they find THE ONE TREE.
