It's about time to set up the Christmas tree that many have already picked out. I have to ask, though: Which do you prefer, a real one or fake one? I'll tell you what I prefer and which ones we have.

I prefer a real tree. The smell of pine mixed with candles burning was the smell of Christmas season for me growing up. As Murphy's Law would have it, I married someone who is allergic to pine, so we have an artificial one. Since our son has a habit of breaking stuff, we even opted for this felt one.

How about you?
