I think the last time I had a live Christmas tree I was in high school back in New Jersey. Though come to think of it, I believe once we moved, we went to a large artificial tree. So it must have been even longer still.
Since moving in with my hubs, I’ve been using a smallish, table top artificial tree. I figured if the cat decided to attack (or climb, or pull down, or whatever) that it would cause much less havoc and damage. Last year we didn’t even decorate since we were away for early November and then I had to focus on the 50 Days of Giving giveaway promotion when we got back.
Since then, I’ve been toying with the idea of either upgrading the size of my artificial tree (as the cat has been leaving it alone from day one). Or maybe going real this year. But now that we’re talking about moving next summer when classes let out, I’m not so sure I can bring myself to making the big purchse.
Enter the folks at Living Christmas (they’re located in Redondo Beach). I’ve mentioned before that it turns out you can rent just about anything…well, now you can even rent a LIVE Christmas tree! They carry different sizes and species. And all things considered (if you go real on a regular basis), they’re not all that expensive. Very cool.
And if you want a chance to win your live three this year, then head on over to JessicaGottlieb.com and enter her giveaway. I’d wish you good luck, but well, I know I’m going to win it this year!! 😉
I had real Christmas trees my entire life growing up in Maryland, and even once or twice here in Florida. But it’s so hot here and they die so fast, so I gave in and got an artificial one several years ago, thank you Martha Stewart at K-mart. It’s not quite the same, but it looks decent. Of course I spent a ton on trendy ornaments to make it look that way 😉

I really think that this year (if I even do a tree), that I want to upgrade to a bigger tree. Or maybe I’ll just hold off and upgrade when they all go on sale.
