    We have always had a real tree but last year, it was a messy disaster. So this year we are thinking about getting a fake one. Do you get a real tree or have a fake tree? When did fake trees get sooo freaking expensive?!

    I always used fake, but this year we are using a real one, but it's one of those little table top ones.

    WE used to get real, but switched to fake a few years ago. The pre-lit was awesome. It was made of only 3 sections and went up in a few minutes.

    We were poor so we never knew if we were getting a Christmas tree until the prices dropped on Christmas Eve. I can't remember a childhood Christmas that didn't have that memory :nocheer:
