What kind of tree do you usually use to celebrate Christmas?

    I prefer a Balsam Fir but Fraser Firs are better for lights. Uhmm...
    I'm curious about decorating too.

    Just your typical real artificial 6ft. tree...
    Prelit...
    And a combination of new and old ornaments.

    My old ornaments aren't as old as they used to be @Dannydet. I got a Red River Rifle one Christmas. I'm afraid only the plastic ones survied. After a couple of score years the paint has faded but they get pride of place.

    Is the real artificial tree a thing you grew up with? One side of my family loves them. I'm not from that side. :rob:

    usually we set up a artificial tree and decorate it mostly with old things with some new ones thrown in the mix. and don't forget the lights as well

    It's already in water though. Hasn't it been cut or is she planning on replanting it. One of my aunts did that and it grew to the third floor of our house.
    You wouldn't have recognized it as a Christmas tree though. It was tall and lanky.

    I'm not sure what she did. It actually did grow in our front yard though.

    Her mom was a Gardner and I think she inherited that.

    How about this beauty. Camborne town's tree was vandalised, and eventually replaced by a real spruce.
    (Spot the fake one)

    A cannabis tree but it don't stand long enough for Christmas because it gets rolled up and catch fire so it can't be decorated:D

    It's a Norway Spruce for us this year, a nice 7 footer. We had a Norman Fir last year, which looked lovely but does not have that lovely pine smell when you walk in the house. :D

    Fake or real.. mm, we always had real when I was growing up. However I have always had fake up until I had a family, now it's real all the way.

    Quick picture of ours, didn't have the chocolates or candy canes on at this point. Never do tinsel as I personally hate it. But do love Gisela Graham baubles, we have clear glass ones with angels inside. Blooming lovely.

    This being the 1st year with a cat, it should be a challenge to keep it up and the cat not being evicted!! :oops:

    Are you sure the tree is unfolded? Way to slim for my needs. Don't have a 12 foot room anywhere. I need a wide tree.

    It says "pencil slim"--so I think that's how it's intended to look. But...why?!

    Who has room for a 12' tree, but wants it to be "pencil slim" too?
