 I always had a real Christmas tree when I was married...but always felt bad for the waste of cutting down a perfectly good tree.  Now I am divorced, and got a fake one...I love it because you can re-adjust the braches to accomidate an ornament that isn't fitting too well!!!

Real.    Never had a fake one.
Because of the tradition, the meaning...   We have done living trees in the past
and will again some time in the future but we will cut our own again this year.

We had a fake one, but it broke as we were taking it down last year. We planned to get another, but could not find a clearance one we liked since it was already Jan and most were already sold. We are going to get a real one this week and look for a fake one on clearance after Christmas.

I have a fake one. Growing up I had real ones and learned they are much better on wood floors with rubber mats underneath. Since I have only carpet at my house, my tree is fake.

Fake. I cannot justify cutting down trees for nothing, basically.
:-( poor trees!

Fake. It's green with colored lights. I wanted white lights, but Dh likes colored lights :( I don't see the point if cutting down trees.

A fake tree that looks real.    I love the smell of real trees but don't want to deal with them.     I love my fake tree it is beautiful.  Fire retardant ( which is crazy imoortant especially since our house almost burned down 3 weeks ago).  But I do get a center piece with fresh pine every Year

Real I love the smell. We get ones you can replant so it doesn't die.
