    Fantastic news
    be careful if you have any pets, make sure they stay away from the tree, they could get hurt

    Have a fantabulous christmas and a happy new year!

    I want one too. We normally have one, but the boyfriend was totally tired of things like needleloss. So for the first time we're doing the artificial thing. I will get two small real ones in the window.

    :tree:

    I would love a real tree! Enjoy! I grew up with real trees every year. We would go to the local tree farm and cut our own down and sip on hot chocolate. When my daughter is old enough for it, I'll be doing it again. Until then, a fake one it is!

    Enjoy your tree!
    I have always wanted a real one. The closest I ever came was spending Christmas with relatives who had real trees. It isn't the same as having a real one in your own house though.

    My fake tree is looking kind of ratty. Maybe next year I'll get a real one.

    hello and I know what you mean. I love it when people have decorations up for Christmas. It just makes me all happy inside. I don't know how long you've been with your husband, but maybe some of your Christmas spirit will eventually rub off on his family. One can only hope.

    My big fake tree has been looking ratty for a couple years now, so it was either use it again, get a real tree, or buy another artificial. When and if I get another artificial one again, I want a real nice one and I can't afford it this year. maybe after Christmas when the prices go way down. Then again, it's so nice having a real tree, I'm hoping to be able to keep getting them.

    I'm going to be watching for after Christmas sales too. I want a pre lit one. Actually I would love to ave more than one tree, but I just don't have the space.

    ya know, I'm going back and forth on whether to get a prelit or not. I am so tired of putting lights on the tree, so in that respect I want a prelit. but, from what I've read and heard and am starting to experience (one of my trees is a 7ft, slim prelit), the lights don't last long. I think this is the 4th Christmas for our prelit and one section of lights is out. I have searched for the burnt one(s) but can't find any. So, how do I fix it? I could put a string on, but eventually they will all go out. A prelit costs so much, too. I don't want to pay for something that will only be good for a few years. If anyone reading this has had a prelit that has stayed lit for many years, please let me know. oh, and I started putting up 2 trees about 4 years ago after I got the slim prelit one on sale for $25. And when we moved to this tiny apartment a few months ago, I wondered how I could decorate, since there's practically no room. But, I was determined, especially when I found I could get a real tree. So, the slim tree is in a corner, and the real tree is in our dining area. yes, it's kinda crowded, but it's only for a short time.
