As you can see from the picture, I'm referring to Christmas trees. Tis the season, after all.
So my husband and I have had this ongoing "discussion" every year about which is best: A real, pine-smelling, needle-falling Christmas tree, or an artificial, pre-lit, easy to hang ornaments Christmas tree?
I vote the latter, and my husband, the former.
And every year, I've always won. We pull out our tree from the attic, stack it together, plug it in, and wallah! A little fussing with the branches and it's all set to go.
My sister, on the other hand, allowed her husband to coerce her into purchasing a real Christmas tree this year. They lugged it home, set it up, and literally had to wrap the tree in lights, like a mummy, to keep them in place. By the time they'd hung the ornaments, rashes and scratches covered their arms. And the next day, they heard their oldest son call, "Mom! The Christmas tree just fell over!"
Now I ask you, which is better?
