It's fast approaching. Stores are decorated and the cold weather is creeping in! For me, my Christmas tree goes up one week after turkey day. For YEARS I have insisted on a real tree, but for the past three seasons I've made the switch and gone to the pre-lit fake ones. I will say that even though I was horrified at the thought of doing so, I have found it to be great! Easy to put up, lights are already there, and I'm not finding pine needles in July. I do miss the pine smell, but there are candles for that right? Take the poll now, real or fake trees? Feel free to comment as well!
