15 years of a fake for us. Maybe longer

When do you put up your tree? 
2 weeks before for us 

 

 

Artificial.  17 years.  Whenever we damn well feel like it.

 

Festivus pole is up year-round.

So what you're saying is your wife is faking it?

It only counts as a Festivus pole for maybe a month.  The rest of the year it's a stripper pole.

 

Unless you have strippers the rest of the year, your Festivus pole is as useless as my neighbors year round Christmas lights

Artificial 

 

The last time I had a real tree, my son was 10. He had never experienced the “joy” of a real tree, so we got one that year to fulfill his request.  After allowing it to come to temp in the garage and have all the bugs crawl off, we still ended up with spiders in the house. The mess from the needles (even with a tree bag), combined with the bugs, made that a one and done.

 

The tree he puts up at his house is artificial. You’d think he’d want the pleasure of the real tree experience in his own home after having it denying to him when growing up. :classic_dry:  
 

As to when it goes up… usually after thanksgiving.

I didn't see a 'no tree' option.

:tomato:

How about a ceramic one? Or would you prefer a stick in a bucket of mud. 
 

Or for you a paper cutout  or a blowup one

Fake tree. It goes up the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

 

This is me also. I do have the big C8 bulbs but in LED's, and once they get plugged in, they are left on 24 hours a day till January 1. How I roll....

Real.  Typically a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, but on occasion we get a real nice one.

 

Taken from the back yard at 1/2 time of a Bills game 1-2 weeks before Christmas.
