    But what do you/ your family tend to go for and why?

    Fake. We don't have to buy a new one every year, doesn't make as much mess as a real one, doesn't need as much looking after etc

    That's fair enough, I think we mainly got a real though because it looks a little nicer and it smells nice

    Isn't it expensive to get a real one every year?

    Fake ones have a more authentic look to them imo.

    Fair enough. One of my friends family spends a bomb every year as they always get a monster one for their enourmous house.

    Real all the way. Bringing it home from the shop is a big part of the tradition. And as someone's mentioned, it smells lovely.

    Real because we own a plantation that cultivates trees for this purpose.

    My preference is for real, so long as it's sustainable e.g. in a pot outside the rest of the year round and not just a tree that's killed only to stick it in a room for a couple of weeks and then bin the thing

    Yes I am a closet hippy :hippie:

    My family don't presently have a tree on the go however, and I'm not sure whether the flatshare I'm moving to do but I may have to impose one on them if not! :tree:

    Fake. Its not coming out of the attic for another few weeks yet, though.

    Imo, it looks better (as most christmas trees are all bushy at the bottom then taper out to a stick) and it saves money, not having to buy a tree to throw it out a couple of weeks later.

    How can a fake one be more authentic than the real thing? :O

    For me it's always a real one - a 7ft tree that doesn't drop needles only costs about £10 where I am and it looks/smells so much better!
