What type of Christmas tree do you have/like? Fake or real? Why?

Posted by   + Show Post

 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!!!

I always had a real one growing up. DD has never had a real one and it makes me sad. I'm hoping to be able to get her one next year.

Real all the way. I refuse to ever have a fake tree. I dont care if I'm 90 and cant walk. DH and I agreed we would hire someone if need be to get us one. lol. I love the smell and the look. I have seen tons of fake trees and never has one ever compared to the beauty of a real one.

Fake because my dog was obsessed with the tree water the one year we had a real one.

Fake. In all my life I have always had a fake tree until at 15 I convinced my dad to get a real tree. We discovered I am allergic. I had itchy red blotches everywhere, my eyes were all puffy.

Fake. I'm afraid of fires and I don't like the whole pine needles all over the floor thing. Plus we have a 9' tree. Idk if they sell real ones that tall...

Real, love walking in the front door and smelling the Christmas tree. I don't like the way fake trees look.

We prefer living trees that we can plant after the holidays.

Fake ... so much easier to take care of. Besides, my tree is black and I love it!

We've had one real tree in the 27 yrs we've been married and that was in 2008 and there will never be another one.
