It’s December first, which means Christmas is right around the corner. So my Sunday Social posts this month will be holiday oriented (big surprise!). And today I’m starting with a question about one of the biggest Christmas traditions–the Christmas Tree.
Do you get a live tree or an artificial tree?
I have never had an artificial tree as my main Christmas tree. I’ve had small desk-top artificial tree at work, but at home it’s always been a live tree. Even a couple of years ago when we spent Christmas in Cape Cod, we took about an 8″ tall live tree that sat on a stool with the presents grouped around it. LOL
Nothing beats the smell of a live tree.
Going out in the cold to buy the tree is a great family tradition and we always get the same shape tree: tall and full. I always decorated my parent’s tree and our girls have decorated our tree (except for the lights) since they were about 4 and 5.
So how do you weigh in? Artificial or real? If you don’t put up a tree, which one do you think has more merit? There are pros and cons to consider for both.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
