This will be the first time my son has a tree for Christmas. We move into apartment that has plenty of room for a Christmas tree. My wallet said artificial tree but I love smell of pines.

Which do you prefer Articial Tree or Real Tree?

When do you start putting up your Christmas tree ?

We always get a real tree.

We get it when we get around to it, sometimes right after Thanksgiving and sometimes a week before Christmas.

Artificial because I'm allergic to real ones.  We put it up after Thanksgiving.

We have always had a fake one. But it finally broke so this is the first year we are getting a real one, but we are getting it in a pot and using it 2 years (we can put it outside in the yard..)

We always get a real tree, except for last year because my house was under construction and my son had just been born. So my mom gave me her small fake tree from her classroom.

We have artificial because my husband is allergic to pine.  I put one tree up yesterday and plan on tackling at least one more today.  I put up a total of 5 trees in my house.

artificial, with the pets, real trees are just targets, lol....and I kind of hate the smell of the real tree after the first few days, it gets a bit cloying to me.
