Christmas tree is a spiritual symbol for Christmas. This Christmas tree symbolizes the hand pointing toward the heavens. The evergreens were thought to represent the ever-burning fire of life. Plus the smell of them is wonderful; it's fresh, sweet of pine, and the smell of spiritual of Christmas.

Fake tree is different, it doesn't have any smell, any touching feelings, or even the Christmas spirits. like other comments above, the taste is different if we trying to replace the real tree with the tree can.

Side: Real

I prefer a real tree, the smell of it reminds me of my childhood Christmases, kind of gives that Christmas feeling.

Side: Real

You sound like your childhood was magical! So very Norman Rockwell. My childhood was the opposite, which is why I love real trees now; when I was a kid, my mom would string up garland in the shape of a Christmas tree on the wall. It was very disappointing because all my friends had real trees. When I was finally old enough to buy my own tree at 20, when I came back from Vietnam, I bought an 8 ft tree that barely fit into my tiny apartment...I haven't settled for anything less since!

Side: Real

My childhood was far from magical, but to be fair to my parents, they always gave us a good Christmas, even though they were pretty broke.

They also have cheese in a can, but that isn't really the same thing.

Sure real trees are more work, as well as more expensive. But come on. You really have to be deep in poverty to use this excuse, otherwise y'all are just Scrooges.

FUR REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Side: Real

Real Christmas tree is only better because the fun is picking out a tree as a family and chopping it down yourself. However a plastic tree is better if you want to save money.

Real is better. The fake tree might last longer, but it takes a few years to reach the price of a real tree. Also by that time the fake tree would had lost it's quality. And Real trees are cheaper anyway

real Christmas trees are better their presence makes you feel that Christmas is here!!

Side: Real

It is all about the finances. Bought a fake tree at $100 four years ago, and with real trees being $25, I will be saving $25 per year here and out.

I'm not making accusations or judgments, but this statement sounds like something a cheap Scrooge would say.

But honestly it doesn't really matter. Obviously if money is very important to you, you are making the right choice.

Side: Real

It is not a matter of being poor or caring about the environment, but it is a matter of being a penny pincher, I spend my money the most efficient and effective to avoid all waste. Buying a real Christmas tree is a waste based on its longevity to price relative to a fake tree.

I even thought about going cheaper either a cardboard tree or a peanuts Christmas tree.

Side: Fake

They don't shed, and you can us them over and over again!

You can buy shedless pine, and you can have a bonfire when it's finished.

Yes, but you can't use it the next year, or the year after that

Real trees are good if you don't mind the risk of burning your house down. The USFA has released the following stats: "Christmas trees account for 240 fires annually, resulting in 13 deaths and more than $16.7 million in property damage".

By the way, a plastic tree is not fake, it is imitation. Fake means it is set up to fool people into believing it's real.

Side: Imitation not Fake

Fake, don't smell. They don't make you itch. They don't lose needles.

It is good for a fake tree. I like real Christmas trees, but I wouldn't like to have one in my house. Outside would be nice though.

Side: Fake

Do not go the long way just use a fake one. You can "reuse" the tree. SAVE MONEY!

i think fake because they are smaller to fit into your home and also they don't make as much mess as a real one

Side: Fake

With a fake Christmas tree, you don't have to worry about all those needles dropping all over the floor.
