    Fake. My sinuses can't handle a real one. I'm hugely sensitive to fragrance and the smell makes my head throb in no time.

    Why even have a tree if it's not real? A real wooden table would be better than a fake tree. I like the two foot tall trees that you can get from the grocery store. They're hassle free, and easy to move.

    Edit: Just read about the sinuses. If not a real tree, why not move away from the tree theme entirely? Why not have a Krampus statue?

    There are some really nice fake trees out there and they aren't that expensive as long as you don't want an eight or 10 foot tree.

    I'm 45 and I think I've bought three fake trees since college.

    real. my wife buys an ornament every vacation for the last 14 years. I cut, get it home and into position then she does the rest. this is our boy's first christmas (almost 9mo) and he really seems to enjoy the lights. all these 'firsts' are little treasures. it's wild, and going by too quickly

    Grinch here, but I'd go fake. Why cut down a tree? It's not 1971 anymore.

    Allergic to pine trees, so...fake. We just replaced our tree with a new one. The old one lasted for 22 years and still looked pretty good, but it was time.

    I love how the OP reads like an introduction at a support group meeting.

    Fake. Authenticity has its moments. This is not one of them.

    Hmmm...buy a tree or set up the fake one given to us by my in laws and have 60 bucks for beer. Tough choice.

    That is our thing as well. When we put ornaments on we get to relive the vacations of past years. A good bonding and reminiscing experience.

    I put up no decorations for any holiday. I don't care, and my dog doesn't know about holidays, so she doesn't care either.
