Around the beginning of the year, the tree found its way to the curb and was taken care of by the city. This was an event to watch too - the truck with the equipment pulling up the curb .. the younger kids who were at home shed a few tears and bid the tree good by !
As I grew up, I started pondering why we got a 'real' tree .. the tree was cut and eventually 'taken care of by the city' ( destroyed - if you will ! ). One year I bought a good quality fake tree -- and continued the decoration tradition in the same way.....my kids never asked me to get a real tree, they were happy with a fake one ( after all presents mattered a lot more ! )
What do people on this forum think of real tree vs a fake tree?
