12 Days of Christmas – Real Tree or Fake Tree?

Abbey at abbeycoseattle presented a 12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge at the beginning of December. I loved the idea of this and decided to join along with her in the festive spirit! It’s the perfect way to blog about some wintery and Christmasy things to get into the spirit without feeling like you have to blog every single day! β„οΈπŸŽ„


  • link back to Abbey’s original post here so that way she can see who all is joining and she can follow along
  • link back to any one of my posts in the challenge so that way I can follow along too πŸ™‚
  • save the image and join in for the fun!

I didn’t follow the 12 Days in order because certain topics worked better for me and my blog schedule! So it may look out of order, but I’ll get to all 12 Days!

So without further ado….

12 Days of Christmas!!

A real tree or a fake tree…that is the question of the Christmas season. πŸŽ„ In the words of my dad, “Fake Tree = Fake Christmas.” Now, does he really believe that? Probably not. But the point behind it is good. Why have a fake tree when you can have a real one?

Allergies. More expensive. Falling pine needles. Not reusable. Sharp. Sap.

I get it, people. There are a lot of plausible negatives to a real Christmas tree. BUT! Do I let negatives get me down?! No way, Jose!! Real tree all the way, baby! I love a real Christmas tree and as long as I can get a real tree, I will!

I grew up with a fake Christmas tree most years. Do I feel slighted? No. Do I feel Christmas is better now than it was then? No. I just think that it is fun to go out and find a real tree. Then put that real tree in your house and decorate that thing up!! It’s just a fun tradition and maybe…just a little bit…I feel Christmas is a little more special with a real tree πŸ˜‰

So, real tree or fake tree? What is your preference, and why? πŸ˜‰ Share in the comments below or join in the 12 Days of Christmas challenge and let us know! πŸ™‚

  1. I like real trees. They smell good and they look nice. Some artificial trees look awfully…well, artificial. Still, I totally get why people don’t want to bother with a real tree and all the pine needles, etc.
