We have a beautiful artificial tree we bought a couple of years ago. Lance always does the (white) lights, I do the decorations... we aim to buy an antiquey(?)-looking Christmas tree ornament whenever we travel to a new country/area in a country.
This year we have not put a tree up as we are heading to South Africa shortly.
I love a snowy cold Christmas, and equally love a hot summer Christmas... each are enjoyable in different ways, each have their own charm.
My florist is selling 3 ft real trees for £30... madness! My sister got a 5 ft real tree for £20 at Barnes Wetlands Centre. Far better price.
What type of tree do you put up?
