If you’re not sure whether to get a real tree of a fake tree this year, maybe knowing the differences between the two will help you decide. Mike’s top five differences between real and fake Christmas trees (from December 2009).
#5. Fake tree: Clean, odor free representation of the Yule season. Real tree: The Griswalds.
#4. Fake tree: Folds back in the box on the 26th, Christmas done. Real tree: Still picking pine needles off the couch in June.
#3. Fake tree: No sap. Real tree: Sap.
#2. Fake tree: Metal, plastic and wire. Real tree: Bugs, snow and bear poop.
#1. Fake tree: Dog sees something that looks like a tree. Real tree: “Hey, they bought me a doggie urinal!”
