One of the greatest Christmas debates– the debate of the tree. You know the one… do you want a real tree or a fake tree?
Growing up, I always had a fake tree. I never knew anyone with a real one. I don’t remember ever even wanting one. Into my adult life, I didn’t ever do a real tree. All I knew about real trees is they require a lot of maintenance and were very messy (pine needles). I really didn’t have any interest in the extra work. My plate was already busy enough!
Over the last several years, I have been wondering if I should try one. In our current house a real tree would probably be a nightmare. We would have to find a tiny tree for starters. Then disposal would be a mess. So, we are doing a fake tree this year (again). Benefit of this, it is pre-lit and all I have to do is put it in a box when it’s time for it to go away. But this will probably be the last year for this little tree. She’s about lived her years. Maybe a real tree next year!
