Do you decorate with a live Christmas tree, an artificial one or no tree at all?
We have an artificial. I would love a real tree, but with a 18 month old and a small dog I figure we better stick with the fake. Looks just as pretty though!
I always had a real tree, but after the kids moved out we got an artificial one. I like that I know exactly how it's going to fit in the room, and it looks nice. I got one with the lights already on it. That makes it easier, and the lights are nice and even.
We've had an artificial tree for years - always a fairly big one. On our move from our house to a townhouse, and because we were in limbo for six months - we sold our big tree in a garage sale, thinking to get another big one on arrival at our new place. However, my husband passed away six months after moving in and I was not going to bother with a tree, - my heart just was not in it - until my friend insisted I needed to have one for me. So I opted for a lit one in a planter - not too big around and about a foot taller than me including the planter - all prelit. I am so glad I did this because it is easy for me to handle and I do not even try to put it away after Christmas - it sits in the corner of my greatroom - all year round - sans Christmas decorations. I love it because sometimes when having dinner guests I plug it in and it looks nice all lit up in the corner. Then in December I decorate it of course for Christmas. More than you needed to hear - likely - : )
We have a little fiber optic tree that we usually use because I don't have to string it with lights -- and I hate putting up and taking down lights. I don't think we will have a tree this year because we just have too many things to do and we aren't having Christmas dinner at our house this year.
My husband and I actually have a fake, pink Christmas tree.
I have never ever seen pink. That must be one of a kind. I've seen white, blue, green but never pink. That is cool.
GiblinGirl it sounds strange but I bet a pink tree could actually be very beautiful!
We have an artificial tree. I love live trees but torn between having them cut and them tossed out after Christmas. I know that there are tree farms that grow specifically for holiday, but I wish those trees would be planted in our forest, national parks, and so forth.
Growing up, we always had a real tree. But since I had my own family, we've had an artificial one. I just have a hard time cutting down a tree for the sake of having it in my house for a few weeks.
We always get a live Christmas tree. It makes the house smell awesome!
We decorate with an artificial tree every year. Years ago when my children were young we would buy the real tree the weekend after Thanksgiving, but my son had an allergic reaction to it one year and the following year we purchased the artificial tree we have now.

Has anyone ever had problems having a Christmas tree and a puppy?My puppy (Ruby) is now 14 months old (the sweetest girl in the world) but I am pretty sure the ornaments on a Christmas tree, the lights, and actually the tree itself, may be too much of a temptation for her. I have no idea what to do.
