Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
I honestly cannot remember how many I have!!! I don't have a million of them, lol, I just have several. My main tree is 7 1/2 ft and I have several table top trees. I will have to count them when I get them all out and post again.
In Germany its tradition to have only one tree. Put up one day before Christmas.
That is very interesting. I knew that use to be tradition long ago but had no idea that Germany still waits until Christmas Eve to put up the tree. Is it a tradition for everyone to wait until Christmas Eve or are there some that put the tree up earlier than Christmas Eve?
I guess us Americans are a lil crazy by putting the tree up 2 months early!! hehe
I will be putting up at least 3 or 4. I have a 4 ft one up stairs next to my kids room (that one is already up!!!) that tree is the kids. I will put a real one in my living room, but for obvious reasons I have to wait till Thanksgiving for that one. and I will put up probably 2 small table top ones.
Probably 2. We have our main tree, which is artificial. It's fairly big (9' - 10') and it goes in our living room. We often buy a smaller real tree (6' or so) and put it up in our den where we spend more time. The 'real' tree is a mess, but I love the smell.
We will be putting up 5 trees. The 7 ft tree in the living room and a 4 ft tree in the dinning room and another one in the family room. A 3 ft tree in the kids bedroom and 2 1/2 ft tree in our bedroom.
We have just one that goes in our living room. Then I have 2 4 ft ones that I put on either side of our front door and they have lights on them.
I wish we could have more in the house! Well...I did buy 2 miniature ones to put in my girls' rooms ... not sure if they count or not, lol. they're only about 1.5 ft tall
