    We're putting our tree up tonight! :D

    What sort of tree do you have? A real one? or a fake plastic one? :tongue:

    Ours is a big plastic jigsaw puzzle! Each branch is colour coded and goes in seperately in its colour coded layer! and its decorated all red and gold with pretty yellow flashing lights :D

    Don't you just love christmas?? :D

    I love real trees but the cat ****es on it and tries to climb it, and LittleBabyBadger used to try and eat it (or vice versa) so we've switched to fake ones for the time being. Will get a real one again one day.


    When Jessop-Smythe and I were living at home we stuck one of our little sister's trolls on the top of the tree to be an alternative fairy... suprising how many people just didn't notice green-haired troll in drag.

    proper treein it all the way! nowt like spending a sunday being completely bored following parents around a squillions trees that all look the same for what feels like hours! then bringing it home, crawling around the attic to find the christmas decorations again.. then the fun part... puttin the christmas CD's on, and decorating the tree at the same time...

    Think my folks are having a real and a "fake" one this year.... so, my vote is both.... there should be an option :p

    I have a small fibre optic tree in each of my front bedroom windows, a large fibre optic in the front doorway and a 7 foot fake in the lounge. In all my life I've never had a REAL Christmas tree. I have some conifers in my front garden which I like to decorate with lights though.

    Although I like a real tree, when we got one a couple of years back we found it agravated Jonathan's asthma, so we stick with out artificial one instead.

    Have a real one at work, though, and they've just delivered and decorated it this morning - better than last year's, all done up in crimson and gold, but not over-done, so the tree itself is the focus.

    Definitely a real one...Nothing better than going to the christmas tree place and picking your own, then trying to squeeze it into the car....It's all part of it!

    We're not having one at all this year though :frown:

    We have 3!

    A big artificial one on the main lounge, a more slimline one in the dining room and a 4ft fibre optic in the porch.

    We have a billion people round on Christmas day morning so we need a gazzillion trees to get all the pressies under! :biggrin:

    We've got a fake one that has to be decorated pristinely, so Mum's gotta do it, or it won't go with the 'minimalist' theme of the house! :lol:

    I have a fake plastic one (about 2' high!) that I use in my flat. I always go to my parents for Christmas though and they have a real one - so I've voted for both.
