O Tannenbaum, How Fake Are Thee?

I don't know about you, but if it's not a real tree, it's just not Christmas to me.

In my family, it seemed like going out to the Christmas Tree farm was a big gigantic family ordeal each year. Looking back it's also one of my fonder child hood memories. It makes me a little sad that more families aren't having that same experience.

According to a new survey says 60% of the country's households plan on decorating their homes for the holidays but only 22% have actually finished, while 51% said they have at least started the process.

Artificial trees are the preference for 65% while 31% opt for the real thing. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, holiday revelers purchased almost 33 million live Christmas trees at an average price of nearly $42.00 each.

The survey also found 60% of respondents plan to decorate their homes while 34% have no decoration aspirations what-so-ever. The survey suggests a gender gap in preparedness, with 55% of women who plan to decorate getting started compared to 48% of men.

Oh well, different strokes ( & pine needles) for different folks.

Love real trees
I love real Christmas trees, but for the last few years, they have been too expensive! Now I have a smaller artifical tree that I decorate every year. I wish I could afford a real tree every year....

Fake Trees ?
I like fake trees because you buy them once. With real trees, you have to buy one every year. And I don't have money to throw around. So I got myself a nice, full artificial tree and am very happy with it. :)
