I usually have this MONSTER of a tree (artificial) which engulfs my entire living room, blocks the light from the window, as well as the sliding door to the balcony. And this year I decided NO WAY. So, I instead have two smaller trees. The one in the living room is about 5.5 feet, but I have it up on a pedestal to make it a bit taller. It is also narrower than my usual tree, so access to the balcony isn't blocked! (yay!) And then I put one in my girls' room, a bit smaller, probably 4.5, it is on a pedestal as well to make it a bit taller.

With two, I could have the white lights and more themed sort of tree in the front room. Then the kids could have the multicolored lights and the kiddie ornaments in their room!

This has worked out great!

I thought they renamed it the National Holiday Tree.

I'm pretty sure Canada would have done something like that before the states. The U.S> at least has a bit of descency left in it.

Man I miss going to the Balducci tree farm and cutting down a real christmas tree and then getting free hot chocolate afterwards. One of my best memories as a kid.

Oddly, artificial - since I'm an arborist.

And it's 4' tall.

Next year, I think we will start live and get a noble fir.

I don't like the commercial grown douglas fir because they shear them now. That was not so when I was a kid. It prevents dangling things on the interior.

I like the layered look of noble firs.
