I actually like the fake ones better for numerous reasons. They wont gonna catch fire you don't have to chop down trees to get them.

The main reason as though I like the looks of them the aluminum ones like my parents had when I was a kid.

It had long strands of tinsel hanging off of it and a red blue and yellow translucent disk that spun in front of a powerful light shining on the tree as it changed color. It was beautiful.

Greetings comrade! I'm glad to see that you have your mind right and are using the right terminology. Yes the holiday will soon be upon us. We anticipate with joy the holiday. As do all of our brothers and sisters.

Last year we didn't get one because my dad bought me one of those flee market liquor bottles with lights in it.

Specifically, Jagermeister.

It was literally our tree for the year and may be used as one again this year.

Artificial. I love the way real ones smell but the cleanup and disposal is terrible plus I feel bad for the trees getting cut down.

I like the smell of coniferous trees.

Well I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I do live in South Texas. Things are more ghetto here.

Edit: ^ but not that ghetto.

If a tree falls in the forest and there's no one around to see it, can I pretend I cut it down and am a real man?

You can pretend, and you may fool the others, but you'll never fool yourself.

my mom completely gave up on a tree last year after two years of cats breaking all of her ornaments, chewing the lights off, and laying in the branches.

always fake ones anyway. i couldn't imagine the nightmare it'd be with a real one when her one cat would inevitably get covered in sap.

So your tree attracts cats, huh? Would it be fair to say your wood is a real pussy magnet?
#21
Artificial. Dont have to clean it up, plus you get to use it many many times.
#22
I love the smell of real trees but I would rather not have to buy one every year just for it to die after a while so I prefer fakes.
#24
We've been using the same artificial tree since I was born afaik, and i'll be 24 at the end of the month.
We might have had a different one before, idk.
#26
My family has used the same artificial Christmas tree for the last 12 years. Its a nice tradition.

So my mom always tells the same story at Christmas time, where her dad (my grandpa) more/less invented the first one of these

but since he was (and still is) a deadbeat and wasted all of his money on stupid patents, he didn't patent the one thing that would've actually given him a profit.

OT: Fake for residential stuff, real for larger, public areas (ex. my campus is putting one up today).

Fake trees. They are less messy and don't make me sneeze.
I have nothing important to say

I've never seen a real one indoor, would probably be messy but I'd love the smell

Do any of the resident cultures call it a New Year's Tree or New Year's Fir? It's not the only name for it here but I've heard a lot of people call it novoletna jelka.

I usually pick up artificial ones because the last time I got a real one it was filled with spiders and shit

What kind of shit? Because that's pretty unusual in a tree...

Fake.

The one we have atm is getting it's 9th run out this year, and cost about 3 times as much as a real tree, so we're in the black on it.

One year we could not afford a Christmas tree so I put a saw in the back of the car and drove around so I spotted a beautiful tree.

Was located in the yard of a house on the edge of town. It was really hard to tell if it was actually on somebodys property or growing on the edge of the road .

You like the smell? , get a box of those car deodorizer's that are shaped like a pine tree and smell like pine? Use them for decorations on the tree.

Stuff only falls off when you're getting rid of it since they're a bit more brittle than when you got it. Takes a minute or two to sweep up

I'd say a real tree, because it smells nice, and it is better for the environment.

Right now there are fields of trees planted for christmas. They have a roll over, so one part of the field is harvested, and they plant new trees there, and then the next year harvest the next section, and plant again, and so on, so that they have a whole cycle. That means that you're guaranteed that all those areas are kept full with trees, apart from the recently harvested plots. If your area has proper disposal of trees, then the trees can be used for whatever purpose, whether it is fiber board, or toothpicks, or idk, they can be used for their wood.

If everyone stopped buying trees for christmas, that land could end up being used for anything, an amusement park, or a shopping strip or something. Usually they are pretty far removed because that's where the land is cheaper, but still. If we use it for trees, that's guaranteed trees. It's not like we send lumberjacks out in the forest poaching trees. They are farmed.

But for some places, a real tree doesn't make much sense.
