    Real or Fake Christmas tree?

    Yes I know its kinda late but we took down the Xmas tree today and was just wondering do you have a real or fake Xmas tree or none at all and why?
    As for me we use a real one, makes the house smell nice.

    We went out and cut a live tree for years...until my wife's 'new' stepmother gave us her fake tree. We have used it for 20 years now basically honoring her. We do cut boughs for wreaths and centerpieces which DO 'smell' up the house favorably.

    Erecting a Xmas tree is venerating a pagan ritual and an abomination of the deeply held religious convictions upon which Xmas is based.

    Real. We had a fake tree when I was kid. I hated it. A flocked monstrosity, though I didn't fault my mom and never said a bad word against it.

    Of course it's easy to say real, when you live in the state that dominates Christmas tree production. I really like the aroma and I had a particularly odoriferous tree this year. It still smelled good as my son dragged it out the door.

    Seriously? It's nothing more than a tradition for most people.

    Re: Real or Fake Christmas tree?

    i vastly prefer real, but i can't bear to watch the tree die in my living room for my own amusement. if i had a family, i might reconsider. it's not like i cut it down myself, and little kids should know what Christmas is supposed to smell like.

    right now, i have a cheapo fiber optic little tree, which died a few days before Christmas. i tried to repair it, but was unsuccessful. probably will toss it and get another one.

    We use fake artificial Christmas trees. Seems like a huge waste of money to buy a new tree each year and a waste of a perfectly good tree.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
