    well, I have to say I'm a HUGE fan of tinsel (the garland type) and I have to place it on 'just so!' I have 3 cats, and after the first few days when they get spritzed with water, they don't tend to go near my trees. But as it's the garlands I use, the tinsel pieces are short anyway, so wont do any harm.

    :tree: Tinsel

    The only thing I am not loving about it is having to put it on one strand at a time, my mom always told us to throw it on the tree in hunks, I do think it shimmers nice at night with the lights.

    I like tinsel on other people's trees when it is well done. It adds a feeling of nostalgia to the holidays for me. I don't like bothering with it or tinsel garland either and since we have a furchild and artificial trees its just as well that I don't. I find that lots of clear plastic or glass "crystal" icicles can make the tree look just as shimmer-y.

    I didn't take part in the poll because I didn't know if you meant the garland type or the individual strands called 'icicles' (as a child, my family had a traditional 'argument' every year when decorating the tree; my dad and I called it 'icicles' because that's what it said on the little boxes, but my mom and sister insisted it was 'rain' because they said it looked like rain, not icicles lol)
    Anyway, I don't like the garland type because it looks tacky. I love the hanging strands of silver 'icicles' as long as they are hung straight. It is a lot of work to do it right, so I don't like to do it, but I do anyway. I like to carefullly place some towards the inside of the tree to catch the lights reflecting. I actually use clear or opaque beads, bows, AND the tinsel. it might seem I go overboard, but it looks awesome when I'm finished.

    I wish I could send pics but I don't even own a camera now, let alone a digital camera and if I did have one, I confess that I wouldn't even know how to do it. Not that I couldn't learn, though. (not to mention that I haven't even started decorating yet, lol)
