Two fake trees, a 9ft and 7.5ft. Here's (part of) the 7.5ft we decorated yesterday.

I prefer live ones aswell, because I really like the smell of pine .

Yeah, the holidays don't thrill me too much, either, but it has gotten much better since my granddaughter was born 5 years ago. Once my kids were grown, I didn't put a tree up for years. When my kids were young, we always had a real tree until the oldest child said he didn't want to do that anymore (he did all the work) and I got tired of vacuuming pine needles up in July, still. A couple years ago, I bought a white, multicolored prelit tree. It is beautiful, simple and is starting to ease my bad feelings of Christmas.

But I still breathe a BIG sigh of relief every January 2nd.

7' plastic tree with built in LED lights. Burn evergreen scent candle for smell during season. Had it for 6 years now and is still like new. Saves me $$$$ considering the price of real tree and no mess to keep clean.

I like to keep those Oregon Xmas tree farmers in business.....Cut tree!

I'd do one of those live trees you plant in the yard after Christmas, but there isn;t much that grows in sand!!

I couldn't have said it better myself. It's nice to enjoy time with family and friends during the holidays, but man do I look forward to the second of January.

I have two fake trees one with colored lights and one with white lights.

I put up enough lights and stuff outside that Chevy Chase would be proud of me.
