We haven't had one in years. Usually we are gone for Christmas, visiting one side of the family or another and I've often felt that having a fresh-cut tree is frivolous. I do love the tradition, but I could never bring myself to get a fake one.
We've had a few live trees over the years, but mostly we've either had nothing or a potted plant with some lights on it.
We'll be home. Neither one of us will be travelling in the weeks prior to Christmas and they just smell amazing... so I went to our local tree lot and found a pretty one.
We don't have as many ornaments as I thought, be we have more than enough to properly decorate this tree.
I do have way more lights than I realized. I must have had plans to put lights on our house several years ago. ;-)
