We went for the fake tree this year. I know, I know. And again, I know. I love the smell of real trees too. I love the whole experience of going out to look for the perfect tree. However, the perfect tree does not love me. Last year I really could tell my sinuses were acting up once the tree got in the house. I have read that real Christmas trees have a mold factor, some being moldier than others, and I happen to be allergic.
So we got a fake tree that looks, I might add, really nice. I’m pretty happy with it, considering.
Plus it already had the lights on it, which is a bonus.
