We don't have room for Christmas tree in our place But this year, we are thinking of picking up a small live pine tree in a pot and decorate it.

Every Christmas, my hubby and I cook scrumptious Christmas meal, stuff ourselves, watch a movie (usually Love Actually) and play PC games So we will probably do that again this year!

1. Fake for ~15 years or so, due to wife and younger son's allergies. It was like a light-switch when we changed in terms of how they felt!

2. Movies? Die Hard and A Christmas Story are my faves

Song … here is a new song I have been enjoying:

But… If we can call any song as beautiful, that's the one.
For the obvious extremely emotional yet soft for ears reason it's a sure bet to win even with an average voice, but you know me, I always want something extra instead of the original material. For example this unprobable duo did it justice:

I don't really get the hate for real Christmas trees. Trees are a renewable resource, and the small ones used for this purpose aren't century-aged old growth. But hey, if you think it's more environmentally friendly to support an industry that manufactures fake trees out of fossil fuels, go for it.

When I was a kid my family used to drive out to a tree farm each year and cut down a real tree. These days my wife and I use one of those foot-tall plastic ones. It's less effort, easier to clean up after, and poses less fire risk. It does feel less festive but I can live with that.

Does "Grandma Cooked The Dog" count as a Christmas song?

Anyway, if you ask me, do what you want. Tree, no tree, plasic or wooden, virtual or lightshow, anything. I'm not judging as long as you can accept me stating humanity is rotten to the core.

Spoiler


So yeah he's doing well. Mornings can be hell because other lifeforms needing a bit of sleep is seemingly very, very uninteresting to him. Play is important stuff.

He understands "no", "food" and i'm pretty sure he understands "play" too.

Don't use tinsel if you have a cat. They can eat it and die because it gets tangled in their guts.

As for me, no tree this year. Just happy to enjoy a peaceful and hopefully snowy Christmas. Favorite Christmas movie is still Home Alone 2. The first one is good too but the second really nails it with the festive atmosphere.

If you are really worried about the environmental impact, either do not buy a tree or buy a potted one that you can plant afterwards. Works best if you do not have to drive it home in your car.

Regardless, I can very much understand everyone who prefers a tree that is less likely to set your house on fire. Although, using LEDs instead of candles and/or a tree that still lives should work well, too.
