Christmas Tree Decisions

Fake or no Fake. That is the question.

Last year I made Mark throw away our 10 + year old artificial tree so I would be FORCED to replace it. (We had talked about tossing it for about the past 3 years and never did.)

So that being said I now have to decide what tree to get. Do I go with a real tree? Our past history with real trees isn't a good one. We have done the go to the parking lot stop and picked out trees that were "perfect" only to get them home and have to tie to curtain rods, nail to floor to attempt to get straight. We had a cat decide to explore the tree while doing last minute shopping the night before Christmas to come home to every ornament and 1/2 the lights busted from the impact of the tree crashing to the floor (that was a sad sad night) (( also said cat left our home the next month))

So I have been considering a real again but as I said am a bit nervous and the cats we have now are very curious. I know that artificial trees have come a long way in the past 10 years. Now you can get pre-lit. You can get rotating stands, you can get music, and the branches are already on you just swing them up and down. So that's all exciting.

I have been surfing the net and look at what I have found..........

The ever wonderful UPSIDE DOWN TREE! Who knew!!
What about the purple or blue tree

What do you think??

OK, the upside down one's just are not right! we got a new pre-lit one last year and loved it. Of course I have the cat and kids to contend with so I would not go real!

it's me, Val said...

Neil loves the all-red trees.

We're going real all the way, baby, this year! (ftr, We have 3 cats and real does just fine. They just drink the water.)

The purple one of course. The only thing that would be better is a pink one. ha ha
