Thread: Real Tree or Artificial??
12-05-2005, 01:22 PM #26
I have never really gotten into decorating the tree. My family has always had one, but I just cant get into spending 2 hours putting up a tree, hanging the lights, wrapping garland, hanging ornaments. I think I am going to come up with an invention similar to a potato gun, that launches ornaments onto the tree, and it will have an automatic feed, just dump the ornaments and start pulling the trigger.Shawn M.

1 Real and 5-6 Artificial.
All of the good ornaments are on the real tree and the presents go under it as well. We just spent all day yesterday looking for one in OH and MI.
The 12' artificial we have, is where the trains go under.
We have a Barbie one for my younger sister.
One in the upstairs hallway, brothers room, front hallway, foyer.
We have yet to put the lights up on the house.
My mom goes CRAZY around Christmas Time and bakes 24 different kinds of cookies, has around 18 large boxes of decorations, and yes, we do have alot of firefighting themed ornaments.------------------------------------

Real Tree - Mossy Oak is the best all around in wooded areas. However, ghilli suits work well too...

Artificial tree for us........I love the smell of the real thing but hate the needle falling everywhere!
My grandmother used to have one of those ole timey solid chrome trees, my fondest memories from childhood were from Christmas at her house.
My father in law used to go out and cut down his very own "Charlie Brown" tree every year until 2 years ago. He would always come back back with this sad little cedar tree and then dress it all up like one of the big boys!
In other news, the Lowes stores around here started out selling "Holiday Trees", but when the public started raising heck and not buying trees they quickly changed the signs back to "Christmas Trees"!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did this happen everywhere else?

Living in the "Pine Tree State" it's not hard to find a place to cut one down!
There are Christmas Tree farms all over the place.
I'm all about the real ones.
