Well this is ours.  7 1/2 feet of Christmas joy.  My wife saw the picture and said it looks as though the tree is on fire.  Fear not, we're still here.

Good thread and real or fake doesn't matter much to me. It's the story of all the combined memories around the tree and the real meaning of the day of course.

 

We are using the same fake tree my Mom bought in 1972, when earlier that year we were homeless and only had a truck left. We got housing then Mom was able to get funding to get us a real home again. Anyway, making a long story short, the tree has seen it's better days for sure but when the ornaments are on it you can't tell the needles are squished and the pole is getting wore out much. The wife says it's time to retire it but I'm having some major issues in my mind about that, and I don't know if I can even go shopping for a new one with her after Christmas to try to get a good post season deal. I haven't taken a pic this year yet, but here is one last year. I guess I gotta let go but it will be tough.

It still looks very nice! We have one that was my great grandmother's. I'm not sure how old it is, but I would guess that it is at least 30 years old. Here's a pic.

We used to buy live trees with the root system so we could replant them after use got them cleaned up after Christmas. Out 11 trees we did that way 5 survived, so we gave up and bought an artificial tree. My wife has gathered lots of different decorations over the years so she does the tree in a different theme every year now. This year is Blue and White with Candy topper.

We did that one time (I think it was my very first Christmas). It wasn't planted in the best place, so it didn't live very long.

Here is ours. It is a " fake " Christmas tree that was my wife's grandmas that she used in Florida and later here in Michigan. We figure it is about 50+ years old. We have used it off and on since 1990. Sometimes we get a real tree from the Forrest or from the Scouts.

It's about served it's time for the family. We have another one that was the wife's parents that is a lot bigger. Probably will use that beginning next year.
