It's gotta be real! It's not Christmas without that beautiful smell. It brings back all the great memories of Christmas past. Heading to a farm with my dad to pick it out, the whole family decorating, listening to Christmas carols, my dad picking one of us up to put the angel on top. Now a days I get mine from the Boy Scouts up the road. I'm sure fake Chinese trees are cool too though.

Always had real until my mom developed an allergy. Then we went fake and I loathed that idea! Now the fiance and I get a 9 foot fat behemoth of a tree and I love it. The smell is amazing. However the needles through out the house after taking it out, blows.

NICE!! Planning on getting the stand (this will be my first year getting/having a tree at home) and then look for a nice enough tree. Since I live alone, setting it up could be tricky.

Single? Mention you have a tree to decorate all by yourself next time you are at the bar. You're welcome.

Bar?? I have a bar of stainless in the finished room in the basement. I'll see if mentioning it when I'm down there next does anything.

Closest thing I come to a bar is above. Unless you count a brew-pub. Even then, it's been months since I've gone to one and will probably be months (or more) before I go to one again.

...Said the woman drinking vodka cranberry's celebrating her 30th birthday with her friend, Sarah, who is married and has to go home because she is working early tomorrow morning.
