Christmas Tree - Poll

Re: Christmas Tree - Poll

  • We love the smell of Christmas trees and the whole experience of getting one :-D also its been a tradition to get our tree on Dec.14th DH's birthday.

  • SS - No tree! Just kidding - I have a 10" fake tree sitting on top of our DVD shelf. It's currently naked. I couldn't bear not having any tree or decoration up, but we leave in less than 2 weeks.

    We're spending Christmas with our families, so fake tree at MILs and real tree at my parents' house. I'll claim their trees as my own since that's all I get this year.

    It is considered a sacrilege in my family to have a fake tree.  Even the people legitimately allergic to real ones get berated.
    People are allergic to trees? I had no idea. I grew up with a fake tree, but DH went to school for Forestry Management, so he is all about the trees. We will get a real one, but not until after Dec 14, since that is when we close on our new house. It's going to be a busy, crazy, rest of the year.

  • We own a fake one.  We used it last year and will again this year, but I have a feeling that DH will want a real one next year as he prefers real.  A fake one is just easier with a 3 month old (last year) and a 16 month old and a newborn (this year).

  • Ours is white with white or blue lights. They also can flash if on the correct setting. We have blue, white, silver and yellow ornaments.

    Hahaha, this!

    Getting a tree is a ritual for us, we go to a local farm where you can either go out and cut your own, or have your pick of pre-cut trees on the lot.  The place is beautifully decorated and puts us in just the right mood for Christmas!

  • Jay will never allow for a fake tree.  Like, ever!!

    You should see his face when I suggest it...  He's very serious about his tree business.  I save all of our laundry change in a jar above the dryer all year long for our tree purchase.  Some years we get close to $250 (not that we spend that much), others we're closer to $70.

  • I grew up with fake ones at home, so getting a real one is really important to me now that I have my own family. I enjoy picking one out, tying it to the car, and getting it all set up. I love the smell too!

    Yep, I am. I am highly allergic to cedar and mildly to pine. I can have a real christmas tree in the house but, if there are shavings around I am doomed.
