My dad was allergic to pine so we always had an artificial one growing up. Plus I think it's horrible to kill a tree once a year then throw it away when you're done. Not that an artificial is environmentally wonderful. 

I am a liberal, non-CIO, formula feeding because it was necessary, pro-choice, pro-gay and straight unions, socialist, unitarian universalist, theosophist, free range, educated single mother of one beautiful girl who is my entire life.

We have a prelit artificial one, but I really want to convince Dh to let me get a real one this yr!! He hates the mess but I always loved the real ones growing up. 

I'd probably put the fake one in the yard =)

We used to get real but with all the pines it got to be too much so now we stick to the artificial tree it looks just as nice as a real

Hubby and I both grew up with real ones so that's what we always get. One year I got a little fake one but hubby was deployed and I had a broken leg wouldn't have gotten one at all but the kids would have been disapointed.

We have artificial. I have NEVER had a real tree. Why kill a perfectly good tree and then just throw it out?

We have a fake one that we use but when my daughter is older we'll get a real one. Real ones are such a mess & my 21 month old makes more then enough mess as it is so the last thing I need is to be cleaning up needles several times a day! I do love the smell of them though, probably could buy a candle with the pine scent.
