Saturday morning, the first day of December, we woke up to snow- real snow, not just flurries but big fluffy flakes. Throughout the day it snowed off and on, hubby put on the snowtires and we went out for the day. We looked at Christmas trees (I'm going to ask a question about this later) then watched Enchanted. That was a cute movie and recommend it to all you romantics out there. By the time we left the theatre, the fluffy flakes had turned into blowing snow. It was a little dicey driving back home. I was glad for those snowtires!
Anyway, now for my tree question:
This is our first Christmas in the new house. For years, we'd get a real tree, but our house was so small we had to find the skinniest tree we could and stick it in the corner. This year I have plenty of room for a big tree. However, my hubby wants a fake tree. No mess, no watering. All this appeals to me too. I told him I didn't want a faky-fake tree. I hate a tree that doesn't look like a real tree. This weekend we found one that I approve of. It's also a bit pricey. I'm torn between my practical side and my sentimental 'smells like Christmas' side.
So do you do real or fake for Christmas? I'm going to make a poll but I'd love to see comments too. What is your thoughts on this important issue? Enquiring minds want to know!
