I hate it!

Dh loves it and asks every year to put it on our tree! I allowed it once, years ago and will not ever again!

Not only a choking hazard for our pets, but I think it is UGLY on a tree!!!!

How do you feel about them?

I've never used it, I think it looks just horrible. Honestly I didn't think people actually used that stuff.

I do use a tinsle and green garland to add a little sparkle.

You can kinf of see it in the back ground here

and the full tree here.

I dont like it.

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.

 It reminds me of the 80's because my Oma always used it. I do not like it and will not use it. Every year we had to dig out last year's tinsel that was wrapped/tangled on each branch. I hated it. I don't think it makes for a pretty tree but I can understand why some would continue the tradition :)

 I have cats and if they eat it it could be very dangerous for them. I would never allow it in my house

I think it's pretty on the tree when hung correctly-one strand at a time.  BUT, it's a huge pain, it makes a giant mess and is absolutely not worth it.

I have a cat so no way would I have that on my tree.

HATE IT.  My husband likes it but I think it's tacky and my dyson vacuum hates it as well.  So no, it's not allowed on the tree.

I don't like it or the green/colored version of it at Easter. The stuff gets everywhere and it is a choking hazard for both young children & pets.
