    I never thought I’d have one but I do and I LOVE it. Fake.

    If I can help it this year… REAL. I grew up with real, I love the whole process of a real tree. Several years ago, Steve convinced me to go fake. I get the convenience factor, but wow, do I miss my real tree. Keeping my fingers crossed that things go right this year.

      I would never have not done the “real tree thing” with the boys when they were young. They could both tell you what songs we sang on the way to cut ours down. We made a day out of it and took Byerly’s chicken and had a picnic but it’s too hard now that we’re alone. I love how PERFECT this tree is and that I don’t get my fingers all cut up. I also don’t miss the water either. “At this stage” of my life, I love the artificial one. But I’d never buy a pre-lit one again. They’re nothing but a pain in the a@@! I’d also like to say when people say they smell so good, ours never smelled for more than about 5 minutes.

      The memories were fun and I wouldn’t trade them but this is good for us.

    I love a real tree, but I have a fake tree. I barely have time to take a 5 minute shower – no way I have time for a real Christmas tree. My kids don’t seem too warped.

    My parents still do the real tree every year. I wonder how long they can keep it up, though. My dad seems to hurt his back every other day, and my mom hasn’t even been able to drive for years and years.

    REAL! Fake ones are not allowed in our house, at least until Bailey is grown and gone. And then, we’ll probably still have a real one. This is the 2nd year Bailey has cut down the tree all by himself, and he’s so proud of that! I wish the smell lasted longer, but I have my Scentsy “Christmas Tree” so it’s okay. 🙂

    I prefer to refer to our Christmas tree as “boxed.” Every once in a while we will leave it in the box and opt to kill one that has been growing for a while.
