    I would love a real tree, but I'm purchasing my first fake tree this year. :D

    I love the idea of a potted tree, but the ground gets a little hard around here after Christmas.

    Artificial pre-lit in our house, saves a lot of arguments and broken lights!

    urgh! i had a potted Christmas tree indoors a few years ago and i was left with small spiders running around my dining room walls and ceiling - i HATE spiders.....i had my hoover on standby for weeks after so i could hoover the little blighters up every morning :(

    i left it outside thinking i may be able to plant it and it started to grow very nicely but one day i thought there were dew drops on it - turned out to be an army of teeny spiders who all started marching along my decking:shocked025:

    The tree went that day and i only ever have a cut one now...

    Artificial, got a nice tall bushy one that looks good and it has lasted us 8 years so far - I agree with the save a tree argument + not so many pine needles to hoover up.

    Its one of those customs that if you thing to hard about it you enevitably come to the conclusions that its all a bit bonkers anyway

    Still wouldn't be christmas without one :D

    Artificial one here. We used to get real trees, but now after having Katelyn it just wasn't something we wanted to deal with. Well I guess between Katelyn and the dog..:rolleyes008:

    We buy a Christmas tree scented Yankee Candle :p015:

    Fake tree for us, especially with the dogs who think "if it smells like a real tree is must be a real tree and therefore I can use to......" well you get the idea :rolleyes008:

    What an awesome idea.

    We're articial tree people. Small boy, dog, no room for big tree, save a tree. I'd love a real tree but can't justify it.
