    Tinsel - Love it or Hate it

    I have never put tinsel on my tree as i think it looks too tacky...I do put tinsel around the house for that special effect though...How about you?

    No tinsel on tree for the last 25 years. Before then, I always used it!

    We used to put it when I was younger (cca 20 years ago) but two years ago when we had brown themed tree I bought brown tinsel for fuller effect.
    When it seems the magic slipped away...
    We find it all again on Christmas Day

    We never use it - too dangerous for pets, little grandkids, and vacuum cleaners.

    I love the look of the old fashioned Christmas trees of the past with tinsel and simple balls. It makes me think how much simpler life must have been. While I love looking at those trees, I don't put it on my tree. I do use the tinsel garland. I don't love it, but all my decorations are European blown glass, and it seems to complement them better than anything else I've found.

    Tinsel is very VERY old fashioned so, like JollyElfDC I do enjoy the look, but only use Garland on my own tree.
