When I was a kid, we'd always get our Christmas tree from Menards. I think the Optimists....something were selling them.
Since college, I've always bought fake tree. I'll be honest. I miss the piny smell that always filled our house back in Marion. A mixture of tinsel and needles would cover the living room floor and we had to make sure our puppy, Treasure, wouldn't ingest them.
Today, Al and I set up our first Christmas tree as a married couple. It's fake, white and already had lights on it when we bought it. We funded corporate America with our purchase (walmart) and the only smell it emits is plastic in nature. Despite all that, I'm happy. And it's truly beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. :)
