    Hello All,

    I voted that I hate it, only because there was no "the worst thing ever created!" choice.

    I can see its use on a real tree, but trying to get that stuff off a fake one (err, I mean "artificial" one) is next to impossible!

    For some reason what looked nice last year becomes twirled and tangled around every branch this year! It's as if when you put the tree back in the box all the little tinsels start talking and carrying on and decide to create mazes amongst the "needles". I think that it is some sort of conspiracy! LOL

    This is exactly the reason we stopped using it when I was a kid! It was just to hard to take off the tree. It's only good on a real tree, because you can throw the whole thing out when you're done.

    Another vote for "love it"

    I don't have anything against other types of garland (beads or tinsel garland), but this is the only type of garland that gives my natural trees a very uniform and symmetric look. Seriously, since natural trees don't have that balanced look of perfect symmetry I just put several threads of tinsel on the end of (almost) each branch - gluing them with a transparent tape or something - and the tree looks more proportionate right away. Since I don't just throw batches of them on the tree, there's no problem taking it off.

    I love Tinsel and my wife hates it with a passion. I am not even sure why she has such hate for the pretty shinny stuff.

    Agree completely, plus we have ceiling fans in every room, so it usually blows the stuff off and makes a mess

    I love tinsel but don't put it on my artificial trees since it's a royal pain to remove. So instead I load up on super fat strands of shiny silver garland to bring on the silver glow!

    Lots of silver tinsel, lots of twinkling and solid white lights. Perfect!!
