Look my place is small, I got nowhere to put a big tree.
I know there are environmental arguments for and against fake trees, but I think it's a waste to cut down a tree that you'll use as a decoration for a month and then it's just thrown out. You can't even make anything with it like furniture.
If 1,000 people use the same fake tree for 10 years, that's 10,000 trees saved.
I 'can't be f___ed' telling you (there's your answer).
I agree totally. Not to mention, as well as environmental issues, real trees can make a mess inside your home (ie. all the bits n' pieces of the tree falling off) which means more cleaning up later. Fake, plastic trees all the way IMO. Just connect the parts together, and your done. The worst part is putting all the lights on. Took me like an hour to untangle all those lights and then putting them properly
on the tree. Even then, the lights distribution still looks uneven
But after that, it's cruise control with the mistletoe, baubles, candy canes, star, etc.
That tree, has been there before I was even born I think. Given that I'm 20 now, it's at least that old. I'll post pics soon.
