You should add another option. Because we have every tear the same old fake christmastree. And I prefer it above the small real ones I see.
So fake, but not sadly. :)
(Real ones can be nice too ofcourse).

Christmas for us isn't very special anymore, so we no longer use Christmas trees.

We used to use artificial ones every year. They don't smell good like the real ones, but they're heaps easier to set up.

The problem with real ones for me is that they tend to make me itch and leave a big mess of needles on the floor. :| Artificial ones are easier to clean up after.

It's always been fake.

But, this year we probably won't have Christmas, so we probably won't have a tree. Oh well. We still have last year's Christmas Decorations on the walls.

No Christmas? D:
I look forward to Christmas every year! It's basically, for me, much better than a birthday(and 15 birthdays a year isn't that special anymore) or ant other feast.

We have had the same fake tree since sometime between my birth and my brother's (2001 and 2003). It has these colour coded branches, but most of the coloured labels on the tree have fallen off so we always get them muddled. It's so annoying how we've kept all these home-made decorations from when my brother and I were really young, and we still put them up. Neither of us ever really got the hang of making stuff Christmas-related (mine is all covered in dolphins and his is covered in random splodges of glitter) so it doesn't look good if we put too many of those up. :(

Even though nobody in my family is Christian (we're all different religions...I think. I can't remember which one my brother is) we celebrate Christmas. But we put the tree up really early for Divali (a Hindu festival; my mum is Hindu) and don't bother taking it down until sometime around Easter.

Fake tree every year - more practical with two kids and two dogs around the house - but I always buy or make Swedish style spiced ginger bread cookies as a part of the decorations for the tree and they always make the room smell wonderful and very "Christmassy" (is that a word...?)

Our family's tree is fake. Honestly I don't really care whether it's real or not. But I have to say that I love the smell of a real tree!

My family and I usually have an artificial tree. I do love the evergreen scent of a real tree though...

We always had a fake tree, I think it's as old as my older sister...maybe even older. Never had a real tree, of course real stuff are better than fake stuff but it saves trees because you won't have to cut one down every year. lol

We use a artifical tree that we've had for the past 6 years. xD We perfer artifical because I hate the smell of the real trees, plus to much needles that come from the real one, my cat could eat one that fell off and she might get sick from that.

Our tree doesn't have many decorations except for some Angry Birds keyrings.

We have a potted Norfolk Island Pine tree that we have up the whole year. It's about five feet tall, and at Christmastime we decorate it with ornaments and tinsel (but not too heavy, right now our tree is kind of weak because it needs more humidity) and it kind of looks like a dorky stick with decorations on it. But it's our friend, and we keep the Christmas decorations on it until February usually.
So it's a real tree but not a cut one.
