Okay.... Not meant to be polarizing but I think the ONLY real Christmas tree is a noble fir. And no fake Christmas trees either! And if I had not recently deactivated my Facebook account (over the election) I would be posting my last five years of Christmas trees here for all to see.
In fact last year I even put on the old fashioned icicles. It took me over two hours just for the icicles.... (one strand at a time!) and it turned out gorgeous.
Bah humbug on real trees..........a real tree in my living room lasts 3 months max.......while my fake one has six years and counting and while some would say the dust is unsightly on the ornaments the cob webs add a certain charm when the light is just right...................
Can't have a real tree. Two grand kid are allergic to the pine needles. Hell they can't even mow my yard, same thing with grass. So a fake tree every year. But my wife keeps giving the fake trees away so I have to buy a new one every year. I feel like giving her away.
