We have to use fake because of my youngest son's asthma...and possibly my daughter's too (she hasn't officially been diagnosed yet, but we're thinking she may have it).
I have found that depending on what kind you get they're not that messy. We prefer Concolours because they are less messy.

I agree that they are beautiful and smell amazing but I prefer artificial. Much easier to keep up with and I just use my scentsy warmer for the great smell. :)
we are considering getting a real one this year, DH saw them and was like "Awh, hey ... " We have a cat, he's not thinking this through.
I love real trees and never found them messy, just hated moving the packages to water them so often in order to keep them from being messy! Plus you also have to hang the lights, which we don't have to do on our artificial tree. I just don't have the back/knees to do the watering every other day and dh hates to string the lights anymore ... maybe after he retires. We did so love going and hunting down the right tree, cutting it down and hauling it home.
Quoting melly_v88:we are considering getting a real one this year, DH saw them and was like "Awh, hey ... " We have a cat, he's not thinking this through.
We used to use real trees, but when my daughters were 4 they both broke out bad with a rash all over their chest and arms. The doctor and us were only able to pinpoint it to the tree since that was the only new thing the girls were exposed to in that past week. We gave the tree to a friend, purchased a nice fake tree and never had a problem since.
