Christmas Trees! Real or Artificial? [POLL]

It’s here! It’s finally here! The Christmas season is really here! The Christmas decorations are coming out and the Christmas trees are being put up.

Christmas trees are beautiful. It doesn’t really matter if they are real or artificial. I grew up with real Christmas trees. Going from tree lot to tree lot and finding the perfect Christmas tree. Actually, it was more like, my mom, my sister and me finding the perfect tree and my dad saying…these are so expensive! But, we always found the perfect Christmas tree and a not so perfect price.

I always felt sorry for the trees that weren’t going to get picked. You know, the Charlie Brown Christmas trees. When I was in college and out on my own before I got married, I made it a point to find the saddest looking tree and take it home. I loved my Charlie Brown Christmas trees!

My allergies eventually made me get an artificial tree about 12 years ago. To tell you the truth, I love my artificial tree! I can put it up early and keep it up! I don’t have to worry about it drying out. Plus, I don’t need to rely on my husband to bring it in the house!

What do you have? Real or Artificial?
