Default Christmas Trees-Do You Prefer Real Or Fake?

I don't really have a preference,but this year we decided to throw up the fake tree. I put it up today,but haven't finished rearranging stuff on it.

REAL!!! DH brought up the subject of buying a fake one this year. I told him he would get me a real one or go live with his mother. He asked me how many trees I would like.

This is the first year I've used a real tree. So far I like it. The house smells nice, and it just looks cool.

I always do real but think we are skipping it this year. So much going on and we hardly spend time in the livingroom so we'd never see it.

I've always had real trees and I am very particular about my tree, lol. I always like Frasier Fir's.

This will be Bear's second Christmas but last year he barely fit under the bottom branch so this year will be very interesting to see his reaction.
I'll be getting my tree this weekend

REAL!! I've had fake all my life. My first real was after 10 years of marriage when I begged my husband! "I just want one real tree in my life"...had real every since!!! Although I have to say it does break my heart to through it out after the holidays!

Real for me. Its a visceral reaction to that silver monstrosity my mother bought when I was a kid. The one with the color wheel!

I figure, hey its a crop and American farmers and middleman (individuals, churches, clubs, etc) benefit until we can figure out how to grow them overseas .

I know. I know. I wasn't planning on it. With 3 crates in the living room and 4 dogs, there isn't much room and I'm not sure we'd ever remember to water it or turn it on.
