We have a fake tree, which really made me sad when my family first got one as a teen, BUT we get to put it up before Thanksgiving and keep it up through Jan 8th, which is something you can't do with a real tree. There's also something really sad about using a real tree for a month and then it gets tossed out. :( Our tree is pre-lit which is awesome, and it has a remote which can change the tree to all multi colored lights, or all white/clear lights, or both. We usually keep it on both.

|With only the white/clear lights on, totally changes it.|

So far I have two. Santa with the bagpipes is also hanging out
on the mantle.

|I've wanted snowflake curtain lights for a long time. |
Only Ikea seems to have them, and I am 2 hours from an Ikea.
Found them on ebay for $10. LOVE.
