So I've had a fake tree for most of my life due to the fact that my family would head to the Bay Area shortly after Christmas and my parents were worried about all of the normal "tree" concerns, fires, etc. So I was so used to having a fake tree that I just carried this tradition on in my adult life. I mean it's really nice to not have to vacuum up pine needles, water the thing, and to have a tree already lit and just in the garage.
Now that Tbone is part of our family and we are spending out first Christmas together... He thinks
I am a horrible mother we should have a real tree (He is appalled that I have raised my children with a fake tree).
A real tree always sounds so nice but then when you think about it... You have to find just the right tree, fight a billion people for said tree, keep it alive, string your own lights, blah blah blah. Maybe I'm just
a brat stubborn and set in my ways, but a fake tree sounds so much more appealing. I mean, they are perfect! But Tbone does have a point. He wants to start a tradition by taking the kids to pick out a tree, and all that stuff. Ughhhhhh!
What do you guys think? Real? Fake? What is your reasoning?
Who do you think will win our little tree battle? Stay tuned to see.
