So, what kind of tree do you have this year? Real or fake?

I must admit, we have a fake tree. Easy to put up. No mess, no stress. Hang the ornaments on, put on some lights, and you're good to go.

But I love the smell of a real tree in the house. It takes me back to my younger years when my family would decorate the tree and the whole house. Everything now is fast, fast, fast. Do it now because you won't have time later.

My wife, Lori, and daughter, Rachael, did all the work. We love Christmas in our house and this year is extra special because we have a grand child. Of course, he is into everything.

Fake tree or real, just make it your own. Gather the family around and have the perfect Christmas.
