Artificial Trees

I've always loved the smell of a new Christmas tree. And artificial ones can be a pain to put up...
But buying a tree out of the lot can be a pain to transport home.

And if you're looking for the Christmas tree smell, there's always pine scented candles. Or a simple small wreath.

They have their pros and cons.
What do you guys think of them?

A high-quality artificial tree for us. Current one is pre-lit with mini-light strings and is gorgeous. For us, the pros of an artificial tree are the convenience of having it available to put up whenever you wish, and no watering or dry needles to mess with.

there is something to be said for both. I grew up with real trees and up until the last 10 years, I would NEVER have considered an artificial tree. But, there came a time when we suddenly had to move and circumstances were such that the only way we'd have a tree is if I went hunting at garage sales. Well, I found a nice big artificial one , really cheap. It's the old kind where you have to insert each branch one at a time in holes that are in the trunk. but, anyway, it is one of the most beautiful trees I have ever seen, and some visitors have thought it was real. anyway, it is quite old, but I don't really know the age of it. This year, I really wanted a real tree again, and I am so thrilled because, even though it didn't seem possible, I thank the Lord that He has worked it all out so we are able to get a real one. I just saw some today outside the store when I did some grocery shopping this morning and, I'll tell ya, with the smell of them and the look, even though I would sit and gawk at the beauty of our artificial tree, there is really nothing quite like the real thing. Both can be beautiful, wonderful, and both can be a pain in the neck, in different ways. The fallen needles don't really bother me.

I've always had real trees. I love them. The smell is amazing. I don't think I would ever want an artificial tree.

I love the candles. Yankee Candle also makes air fresheners for the car. But you can hang them on your artificial tree too if you want to.

We never had real trees because my parents deemed them a fire hazard. They are also a lot of trouble because you have to water them.

What amazes me is in centuries gone by, people had real trees and burned candles on them! I wonder how many house fires there were around Christmas in those times.
