I am a huge fan of "real" Christmas trees, potted OR cut. But two years ago I switched to fake. I had a idyllic hope of having the same live potted tree being brought in the house every holiday season and becoming a member of the family. After losing 3 potted trees in a row I gave up on that idea and went back to cut trees. I think our last cut tree made it a week before it was brittle and it smelled nice for only a day. Maybe it's too warm here in Arizona or the cut trees are sitting out too long, but we went fake and I'm not looking back. I still love the look of a tree in a pot, so I potted my fake tree. If it's night and you've had a few yummy holiday cocktails, you might think it's real! And I'll tell you that it is real, because I am super classy and I don't do fake!
