As the Christmas season approaches (can it be that close already?) it’s getting close to the time when stores will begin stocking some of their first Christmas merchandise from greeting cards to decorations and of course, that modern staple, the artificial christmas tree. What I’d like to ask is: Will you be going with a natural or artificial tree this year?
For the longest time I have been a solid proponent of the natural tree. There’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh pine in the morning and I don’t care who performs what chemical wizardry, they just can’t capture that in an artificial scent no matter how hard they try.
Then in the last few years, due to space and financial limitations we used a tiny (about 1 foot tall) artificial tree. My mother in law has been using the same three foot tall artificial tree for I don’t know how long. In the end I know that it’s not the tree (or the gifts) that really matters so much as celebrating the birth of Christ and His message of love, redemption and hope. (note: this is not a signal for debate or anti-Christian sentiments. I’m a Christian and I write from a Christian point of view.)
Still, in spite of that, I remain curious to know how many people will go with artificial trees and how many will stick with the natural trees.
For my house, I will likely not have a tree at all this year. There wasn’t one last year because my wife was in the hospital and I chose to stay there with her. This year the house is empty except for me and I just can’t bring myself to get that pathetic thing out again.
