CHRISTMAS TREE FRESH OR FAKE?

 

Do you prefer a fresh, living Christmas tree or a plastic, artificial one?

Growing up on my childhood, farm in Oklahoma, we had a fresh, cut  tree usually cut from the farm pasture that had volunteer evergreen trees growing.  

As an adult, I have had both sometimes a real tree and sometimes a plastic version.  The last time I tried to put the plastic artifical tree  together, I was missing some parts and that was the end of that.

 

This year, I'm dreaming of finding a real fresh Christmas tree.  If a fresh cut tree is missing a few branches, no big deal.  If an artificial tree is missing some pieces, it looks funny! 

 

Tomorrow in Abilene, A community Christmas tree lighting will take place at the Abilene Civic Center, 1100 N. Sixth St. as part of the City Sidewalks celebration  from 5:30 - 8 p.m. in downtown Abilene. 

 

 

 

 

   CITY SIDEWALKS EVENTS TOMORROW (11/27) INCLUDE A PARADE, AND A WINDOW LIGHTING AND

DECORATING CONTEST!

A real tree or an artificial tree, that is the question.  I love real trees, they smell so wonderful, but after an hour of the "wonderful" smell I have a sneezing fit.  So I guess we will put up an artificial tree again this year.

I prefer a fresh Christmas tree.  I love the smell of pine.  However, we have an artificial tree.  I invested in a very expensive, high quality artificial tree last year, for like 65% off!  I love the fact that I don't have to worry about picking up pine needles for the rest of the year, it's also a more economical alternative.

much like our false beliefs that we have a government that cares or that we are free I am good with fake. Fits the tradition our country is going and also is an easier mess to clean up

Evelyn, real tree smell good, but sneezing would not be good.

Lanise, oh, yeah, real trees shed, don't they.

Emilia, a real tree will smell like Christmas!

David,  a fake tree doesn't make a mess, but a real tree can be recycled.
