We bought a Douglass Fir tree this year. When it was outside at the tree farm, it didn't look as fat around the middle until we got it home. There will be no fires in the fireplace until after January 6th (when the tree is taken down).
The trimming of the real tree is much more involved than the decorating of the artificial tree or the two outside Christmas trees. (Pictures of Cartman coming soon! ... Cartman is the fat pine tree in front of our house). It took us all day to decorate this tree with several breaks included. It took two sets of lights, three strands of red beads and too many decorations to count.
