Fake or real tree?

Mr. P tried to talk me into getting an artificial tree this year, but I said no way Hosea! Although the fake ones are looking more real I enjoy the smell of my real tree. I also think it would be hard to store an artificial one without taking up alot of attic space. Any thoughts?

I've posted the pic on this site a few times.. real christmas trees scare the heck out of me, once I realized the potential fire hazard involved.. regardless if you water the thing or not.

Fake trees don't bother me.. as long as they are green.. deck 'em out with christmas decorations etc.. looks like a darn christmas tree.. no needles to fall off on the floor etc..

that's my .02 on the subject

For our family, it is a matter of allergies. We have a fake tree out of necessity. Doesn't smell as good but it feels much better

We have a 40-ish year old fake tree we inherited from my wife's grandmother. We store it in that little wedge-spaced area in the closet under our stairs.

We've had a fake tree for three years now. I was once like you, and swore that I would never own a fake tree. But now it's just too convenient. We have carpet now, and I don't want to deal with the mess. Plus the tree comes with the lights already on it.

Well I'm totally alone on this one! It is part of our tradition to have the real deal so I'm standing my ground! I'm alone on dealing with the mess that comes with it as well.
