There has been some intense debate going on in our house regarding the Christmas tree. My dad has been pushing for an artificial tree this year. He thinks it would be easier (no pine needles on the floor), and that it would be a smart one-time investment.
I on the other hand think an artificial tree would ruin Christmas.
But I am adamantly opposed to having a fake tree. It would break tradition--we have always had real trees! I love the smell of pine...it is such a classic Christmas scent. Plus I have very fond memories of crawling under the tree to water it when I was little. How could my dad even consider taking that experience away from Tekle and Aaron??
