we plant a tree every yr i do not trust a real one in door unless it's alive. we buy one in a pot and use it to hang some little hand made things no light on it. then new yrs day we plant it some where either at a friend or our house. i feel it's a good start to the new yr to give back a tree
I hate real. My parents always get them and I hated looking for one. The poor tree took all that time growing just for someone to come cut it down, put some crap on it and then discard it when it wasn't looking pretty enough anymore. I don't like the idea.
I've had my fake tree for at least 5 years,now, but I prefer a real tree, because I love the smell of pine and I miss the tradition of going to the countryside and picking out trees, at one of the tree farms.
But now, I'm thinking about getting a real tree...especially now that we're living in my childhood home. I gotta find that pretty tree-top angel.
