Aloha Friday - Christmas Tree Edition!


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

We are lucky to live in an area where natural Christmas Trees are farmed so buying one is very affordable.  After Christmas, these trees are collected and then turned into wood chips to be used the following Spring for landscaping by our small town so nothing is wasted. 

So for those of you who celebrate Christmas, will you be going "natural" or "artificial" for your tree this year?

We always go artificial. You would think living in the evergreen state we would have a live tree. They are priced crazy high up here though!

We always do artificial, and I think it looks beautiful :)

We have three trees set up in the house. They are as fake as a Kardashian Wedding.

Natural! Nothing beats the smell and I grew up with artificial so I can't get enough of the real thing.

Have to say that I am glad to have Chanukah in our house so we don't have to worry about this. Love looking at trees with the lights, but I know I would do too much ;)

I have an artificial tree with the lights attached, and I bought it for a song several years ago, so yeah, we go artificial. I did the real thing almost every year my children were growing up, but 6 grandkids later it's just easier for me to do the artificial one.

Found you on the Clumsy Coquette blog hop, following with GFC. Hope you have time to pop over to my site too. :) Thanks, Angela of

We have a 9 foot artificial tree that I love however we almost bought a gorgeous real tree at Sam's Club. They were only $30 and would have looked wonderful in our loft. Because our son and his family (our granchildren) will be visiting our DIL's family out of state for Christmas, we decided to forego the extra tree. ;D

I was going to go real this year since I used to only do real every year...but since we're going to be out of town for the Christmas break, I'll be doing artificial so as not to worry about a dried out tree when we're gone. ;)

We have an artificial tree we use, but I miss the pine smell so I add it will candle scents.

We have been going artificial for many years now.
