Do you have a real Christmas tree, a synthetic, or none at all?
We have a real Christmas tree - my children would be very disappointed if I were to buy a fake tree.
This year because we are in the midst of settling my husband's mother's estate, our house is full of different things, furniture, knick-knacks etc. So this year I got a little 2 ft artificial desktop tree and made ornaments. It is just too crowded at the moment to drag in the bigger tree.
Our family has always put up real Christmas trees. There's something about the pine scent... It's funny, because I don't like it any other time of the year. With a real tree though, you have to concern yourself with watering, and possible leakage problems. I thought I had a leak in my stand, but it was my cats that had been running around under there (they love it under there), and they were dragging the tree skirt into the water.
It's great fun going out to the tree farm that's all covered in snow, and taking the hay ride out to cut down a tree. I love sipping the hot cider in the cafe filled with apples, and pastries. It's quite the holiday outing.
Synthetic. I hate those needles everywhere. We already have four cats that shed, we do not need a tree to do so as well. Also, both of us are allergic to real ones. That's a real downer of the holidays. Being allergic to most Christmas scents.
At the moment, we have nothing. We are waiting for our son to come home from college to put up a real tree, and I fear we'll have our choice of "Charlie Brown" trees by then.
I grew up with artificial trees that smelled like the box, and though I am still finding needles stuck to our carpet from the last 18 trees, I wouldn't have it any other way.
I have none at all, I just can't get up an enthusiasm for decorating and I live by myself so no one else to disappoint!
