Christmas tree that is? For us we have a fake tree every year, my ceiling isn't high enough for a real tree and I don't think one would fit in the space we have for the tree.

We used to have a real tree but your limited on the time frame for them and since having kids a real one doesn't last (in our house) from first weekend December to Christmas Day let alone beyond so we invested in a decent fake one year in the sales. I prefer it to a real tree as I don't have the agg of asking H to dispose of the darn thing because it's not SUMMER

Fake. Don't see the point in spending more on a real one that is going to last me one Christmas, than I would on a fake on which i'll get a good few years out of. We've got a slimline 7ft tree. It's got to be a slim one to fit in the only gap we've got that it will fit in.

Real. We always used to have a fake one but last year I made H get me a real one. It was so beautiful and lasted really well too. It's arriving a week earlier this year than last year. Mr R has ordered one to go in the garden too so we'll have a lit up one outside too :)

Fake! Can't be doing with the hassle or mess. We do need to replace ours though it's getting tatty, had it a long time.

Fake, we have a Labrador who would happily *** his leg all over a real one! We do have a real one outside with lights on, bought last year for E's first xmas and planted.

Real. I just love going tree shopping and the smell etc. we don't have anywhere to store a fake one either!

Real. I love the wonky look of them and the way they smell. There's something magical about going out and choosing which tree we want. I love it.

Fake - Don't trust our dog not to eat/knock over a real one.

Fake. My parents invested in a really decent, huge fake one. It looks really good IMO and now we don't have to worry about dropped needles or a bare looking tree. H's family always get real and last year theirs was really scraggly looking for some reason!

fAke- new one this year a 6ft slim line tree, after previously having a tiny 4ft fibre optic one. don't think we'd get a real one in the size dimensions we need to fit the room. I am really excited to have my tree this year!

We've had a real one for a couple of years, it's so nice having a real one and I think our lasts the month because we had it in the conservatory so it didn't get too hot.
This year though, we will be at my inlaws over Christmas so I don't think it's worth getting a real one here, so time to dig out that old fake one that I bought in 1999. Maybe it's time to treat myself to a new one?!

We have a fake one, I love having a real one but just don't think we have the room for a real one!
28/11/2013 at 14:45
Real I think. It normally is and we've discussed getting a fake one without doing anything about it, so it's bound to be a real one again.
We won't put it up until later in December though, I can't be doing with having the Christmas decorations up for a month.

Real - just love the smell of a christmas tree & going & picking one gets me all festive

I'd love a real one but as we spend all our time at Christmas with family and we go away for new year it seems silly to get a real one. It will cost more, the needles will drop and we won't be there to enjoy it anyhow. I need to buy a new fake though as I binned the old one last year as it was worn out.

Real here, we have it in the conservatory and it's so cold out there it doesn't drop the needles too much, looks fab too. We have a tiny fake one in the living room, and we decorate the big tree outside, so 2 real one fake here.

The same as Belle.we used to always have a real tree. I hated how it looked before Christmas - all droopy! We now have a fake one.
