Of course I am talking about Christmas Trees !!!

We have always opted for the real thing. It just makes the house smell great and our Church sells them as a fund raiser for charity. We prefer the Douglas fir.

"What did you use?...paper or plastic"?


My favorite line in "City Slickers"

I prefer the real thing, but my wife prefers artificial-guess who wins?

I always buy a real tree - Fraser Fir because I like their needle structure and they are good for hanging ornaments. Love the smell of fresh pine they give to my home during the holidays. Always purchase it from the same place which is a Y-Mens organization who uses the money to send kids to boy scout camp (they can send a child for every 2 trees sold ). Just got mine Saturday, in the stand Sunday, finished decorating last night, and it's bee-u-ti-ful. This year will be interesting having a puppy (albiet a BIG puppy) in the house. It was cute ... as soon as I got the tree in the house and in the stand she lay down in front of it and stared up at it in wonder for a couple of hours. We'll see if the sense of wonderment holds now that it contains lights and decorations.

Real ... unfortunately here in Florida we are VERY limited on what they truck in from NC and or VA to sell us.

Anyone up north actually buy blue spruce for their tree?

Real trees do smell great. They are beautiful. But have you ever seen one burn? Take your live tree out after Christmas and throw a match on it. That baby will go up like gasoline. DO keep it well watered. I use a artificial especially for that reason.
