    Just got our Christmas tree into the house last night - what a polava! Still, it smells great though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Just got to get the decorations down from the loft now, and then we'll be sorted.

    Is everybody else leaving it this late or have you all done it already?

    Also the most important question: real tree or plastic? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    We went for a real one this year, first time.

    The cats love it and don't seem to attack it like a fake tree. Bit wierd, but maybe the moggys are just getting older /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Strangely, I felt a bit guilty after it was put up. Thinking about this poor tree. Cut down, stuck in our living room, awaiting a binning after New Year. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif
    It does look good though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Tree hugger! Better burn off a few gallon of unleaded in the S3 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Put ours up last Friday. I thought that was late but according to my misses (and she knows best!) it was about the right time!

    Its a plastic one but it looks very good.
