Is that Tree Real or Memorex

Just wondering what your take is on christmas tree's? I like the real ones because I can stick a stand on it and have it upright in 20 min, and, It's real! LOL. We have a fake one but it takes atleast six hr's to get it up and looking deacent. My vote is for real.

How bout no tree.

We had a tree our first year in our house and then last year we had no tree. Just never got around to it. THis year we will forgo a tree because of three adverntious kittens that would most definatly get in it and tip it over causing me to do some not so nice things to the kittens. :|

When I lived with a college buddy we acutally had a fake tree and we would never take it down. We would carry it downstars and put a sheet over it and when it was time we carried it upstars and took the sheet off.

Presto wamo. Decorated tree.

Fake, and I got it looking good in about an hour. Don't like the idea of cutting down trees for temporary use, nor the fire hazard.

REAL!!!
Fake trees look just that FAKE.
Who wants a plastic tree?
Do you get plastic presents?

Now in reefrunners case I can understand.

My wife and I have our first Christmas tree up and it's fake. We plugged in a pine scented renuzit air freshener so it smells like the real thing

I have always been a real tree kinda guy but now we have vaulted ceilings (23 ft at the top) So I didn't want the renewed expense of real nor the hassle. So this year (and every year hereafter) we opted for a 12 and half footer pre lit with 2500 lights. I'll post a pic in the other thread tomorrow morning.
