Real or Fake Christmas tree? - December 2nd 2019, 12:32 AM

I had a fake Christmas tree until I was 8 years old and then we started to go out to this Tree Farm to get a real one. It's fun, they have a wagon that takes you around and picks you up.


So what kind of tree do you get?

We've always had a fake one. My parents say it's too much work keeping the tree watered and cleaning up the fallen needles. I'll probably get fake trees when I get older too. We kept the same fake tree for most of my life and only recently got a new one. So we just put it together and decorate! Getting a real one sounds fun though and I would like to go with someone to get theirs.

Real tree 100%. All the years my family has had a tree, its been real. But we have had years where things didn't line up, and we didn't get a tree, and so we created what we call the "Christmas Web" which is just Christmas lights strung in the corner where we usually put the tree.

To be fair, my brother hates getting trees. I love it, my mom is indifferent. But we all agree that we don't want a fake tree, we don't like the look of them.

But now actually, we have a quilted tree that we hang instead that has buttons sewn on that you can hang ornaments on. My family is odd, but it works.

We always have a fake one. They're cheaper and more reusable. We did have a real one once which was really nice... except for the thorny pine things that kept dropping off.

A real tree We've always had a real tree and while the needles hurt, we love the scent of the pine. I've never actually been to get the tree though but I'd love to do that one day.

We also have smaller fake trees in our bedrooms

I've only ever had a fake Christmas tree.

I disgaree with the post above in that fake trees will give you a fake Christmas. Fake trees are much easier to maintain, you don't have to worry about cleaning up after fallen pine needles and trying to keep it alive throughout the holiday season. I've only ever had fake Christmas trees and all my Christmases have felt genuine. It's not the tree that counts, it's what we do with the holiday as a whole that counts. People, presents, etc.
