We have always been a real Christmas tree family. I can remember being a kid and seeing dad out in the garage flocking the tree we had just picked out. It was a tradition to pick that bad boy out and decorate it together. We kept the same tradition every year until the last 2. We have caved in and gone the fake tree route.

Yesterday my wife and I put up the tree and the whole process took just a couple hours and we had fun doing it. I always feel a little bit like I cheated but the tree looks great and was so easy. What does your family do? Are we in the minority by faking it? Let me know what your family does. We tried going out and picking out a tree to cut down one year but we hiked all around and found our tree only to realize we forgot the saw. It's fake from here on out for us.
