Have you put yours up yet?
If not, when will you?
Do you get a real tree or have an artificial?
How big is it?
Do you use 1 color of lights or multicolored lights?
Do your boys like the tree?
Do they get into it/take stuff off it?
How long after Christmas do you leave it up?
Feel free to share a picture of your tree if you have it up (or last years tree!)
We do put a tree up but usually wait until the beginning of December. This year we will wait an extra week or two due to the move. Hopefully we will find a house this week and move next week so we can be completely settled in by Christmas.
I like real trees but our dogs would probably pee on it. In fact, I know one of them wood so we have artificial but I insisted we get it plain and unlit so all decorations are up to me. At least I can pretend it is real.
I am not sure how big it is, somewhere around 6 ft, but we use all different color lights and my oldest loves to help decorate it. My youngest was only 15 months when we put the tree up last year so he wasn't allowed to help. We do have to watch the tree closely though because we don't get the cheap canister of ornaments. We collect them from trips we make and for family milestones so they are pretty special to us and would be terrible if they were broken.
We leave it up until I take it down which is typically until the epiphany.
