            Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. Hands down. The cheer and spirit that fills the air from December 1st through New Year's Day is amazing. Everyone is joyful and just soaking up every minute of the special time of year. I can't wait to be home by my fireplace having a warm cup of hot chocolate and watching classic Christmas movies with my family. But there is one important item I need every year or else it's just not Christmas to me.

 

            Of course it's a Christmas tree. A REAL one I may add. Personally, I don't like artificial Christmas trees. It's just not what I grew up with, so it's just not Christmas to me if there's an artificial tree in my living room. Every year, I insist we get a real tree for our house. And a fun little tidbit I just learned is that apparently that tree is one of a half a billion Christmas trees growing in United States on tree farms. That's crazy to think about! Half a billion Christmas trees are growing each year on tree farms across the United States. That doesn't even include Chestnut, Oak, Cedar, or any other type of tree growing on tree farms in the U.S. Just Christmas trees. That's a lot of trees!

 

            Every year a tree makes its way into my house, and every year my family and I decorate every single branch front and back of the tree. Christmas trees have a special place in my heart. It's where many memories every year are made. I have never thought about where the tree had been before my house, or how many Christmas trees are growing each year. This year is slightly different for my family, since I am away at college. But just like those trees and this year's tree make it to my house each year, I will be home in no time to celebrate the season of love and joy with my family.

 

            I hope everyone has an amazing and memorable Christmas. Whether your Christmas tree is real or not, cherish the people around you and the time you have with them.

 

            Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I agree, I absolutely love the Christmas season! Part of the Christmas tree fun for me is going to pick out the perfect tree for the house. For me, that and decorating are two of the best parts of the holiday season!

I agree! Christmas is the best time of year and it just wouldn't be the same without going out to pick the tree, cutting it down, and decorating it with the whole family! An artificial tree just wouldn't be the same.

I love Christmas too, it's the most wonderful time of the year! Every year, my family and I drink hot chocolate, listen to Christmas music, and decorate the Christmas tree! It's weird because this year my family has to decorate the tree without me :( It's one of my favorite Christmas traditions. So to make up for it, Samie and I decorated a mini artificial tree for our dorm room. It's not the same as doing it at home, but it's close enough!

Christmas is my favorite holiday too! I completely agree. Christmas would not be the same without a REAL Christmas tree in your liiving room. The pine scent fills up the house,and is really a must have to topping off the Christmas season.I don't think it would feel like Christmas in any house without one.I'm looking forward to going home and seeing how our tree looks this year. Oh,and another thing,the Christmas tree MUST be full. Trees that have bare spots are just not that appealing,and it's really difficult to work with when it comes to decorating.

We are so simiar. I love christmas and I hate artificial trees. I think people that get artificial trees are truely missing out. I can't wait to go home and add more decorations to my house.
