Re: Xmas trees -- Fresh or fake?
To tree or not to tree,...that is the question. Real tree? Fake tree? How about NO tree? I used to love a real Christmas tree, the decorating, the memories, the fragrance. Then, I finally opted for a fake tree, which I would store in the woods, until the next Christmas. No-one ever seemed to notice the fake tree among the real trees in the small wooded area. This year, I'm decorating the door with a picture of a tree, maybe some lights. Maybe I won't do anything. I don't even like going into the stores. It's not a BAH humbug feeling, the whole Christmas extravaganza is getting crazier every year. Still pondering. Real tree? Fake tree? No tree?

Chero, I headed to Florida in Jan. Are you near the swamp?

Re: Xmas trees -- Fresh or fake?
LOL, RT.

Lexi, that part about storing your fake tree out in the woods among the live trees made me laugh out loud.

(While I love the smell of my tree, I'm still waiting for the year when I can just put little white lights on my potted ficus and consider that my tree.)

Re: Xmas trees -- Fresh or fake?
^^ Okay, nearly a year later....still buying a real tree, only not as tall....around 6 ft. It's pretty and it smells wonderful. I still have to put the lights on it. (Maybe next year I'll decorate a ficus tree instead.)

Re: Xmas trees -- Fresh or fake?
Our fake tree looks more natural this year. The top part tilts a bit making it look more natural--not quite so perfect.

Re: Xmas trees -- Fresh or fake?
I hung a fresh wreath. Smells good, and the cats can't reach it. We have a string of solar lights on a small pine tree. That may be it for this year.

Re: Xmas trees -- Fresh or fake?
I swear, it's my last year doing this. This one is a little shorter.

Hee hee �� I got a small table arrangement of fresh greens, and some gorgeous lemons. California Christmas tree. Still don't trust the cats.

Els and I stopped with the fresh trees when for the second year in a row the tree tipped over, breaking some heirloom ornaments. Plus the %#$@@! trees always dried up by Christmas day anyway.

One more year....or so I tell myself. I got it over the weekend. It looks and smells great, and the lights are now up. Now, to start on the ornaments!

Our giant, fake, tree is up. Loaded with ornaments we haven't seen in years. Love it. Cats are leaving it alone, so far.
