We have our artificial tree up already. We usually get it up at the first of the month. I kinda retired from setting it up and tearing it down as I delegated that job to the kids. They took over on their own though, so it's a mutual happiness kind of thing.

I haven't done a tree in a long time, for various reasons.  :(

For a few years I started putting a real cedar and pine garland along our deck railing, that sort of fed the 'tree urge' for me, although I haven't been able to do it the past couple years.

I did get a garland recently, and am awaiting the weekend warm-up (40 degrees F! Woowoo!) to put it out there.

One tip on garlands and wreaths - if you can mist them with water every other day or so, they'll stay fresher longer.

I have a doll sized one up. Don't get to see the granddaughters for Christmas, so I set the doll one up.

We have a woodstove so we tend not to get one until about a week before Christmas (otherwise it dries out super fast, no matter how much we water it :p)

Can't have one due to my kitties wanting to chew on the cords to the lights and knocking off the ornaments.  But I still celebrate Christmas.

No. I don't bother my parents much anymore and they're getting old and my dad has been sick lately. But we still go out and eat plus watch a movie or something else.

Omg lol! My bulldog and yorkie did this as puppies but chewed on the gifts and skirt of the tree lol.

If we put a tree up, we'd be putting it up every day due to cats.

The black pillar cracks beneath its weight

I usually put up a little one just before Christmas.

We bought a full-size artificial tree this year.  And I hope to buy a smaller artificial tree for our bedroom once we're done remodeling. :holiday:

We love Christmas here. So we ALWAYS have a tree. Usually an artificial one.

We've got a full size artificial one up! My mom put it up on the first! We've also got a small white one sitting on a table.

We used to have our artificial tree up every year. It was one of the best parts of Christmas, decorating that tree as a family and arranging all our presents underneath.

But since we moved house there isn't any room for it. I miss that tradition dearly. ):

I voted for "fake" tree because we have a tree but it's just not a traditional Christmas pine or anything, it's some other random sort of forest-y tree in a pot that we already had. xD That was the closest I could get on the poll.
Also Esbayne on the MLP Arena, PonyIsland, and pretty much everywhere else.

Purple fake tree :3
I wanted a black one but just when we were buying it, we discovered a purple one and liked it even more!

This is mine & my husbands first Christmas together married so we don't have much yet. We have this fake tree that my sister and I borrowed from her roommate 2 years ago to decorate my husband's (then boyfriend) apartment as a surprise. We never gave it back and the roommate and my sister don't talk anymore. My sister tried to get the tree back to her this year but hasn't heard back. So I decided it's my tree now. Nothing fancy but not to sad looking. Bonus is that it comes in three pieces so you could just leave a section out and make it a smaller tree. It makes our apartment look festive despite not having many ornaments lol
