Fir or Faux?

Hubs and I are in need of a Christmas tree.
Since we're staying in Ohio for Christmas, I must get into the Christmas spirit.
This means a tree, ornaments, lights...
the whole shebang.
(Christmas 2007...see the tree back there?)
Now the question is this:
Real tree?
Fake tree?
What should we get!?
(Christmas Tree 2008)

The cons:
Real trees require more maintenance.
Fake trees are more expensive.

The pros:
Real trees have a look and a smell that you can't get out of a box.
Fake trees are easier to deal with and don't die.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Since you don't already have a fake tree I would buy a real one this year and then buy a fake one right after Christmas when they are super cheap. That way you won't have to buy one for a few years.

Real. I never had a real one til i married steve and i'll never go back to a fake one. I LOVE the smell and I like that i don't have to store it anywhere in my house after christmas.

It's a matter of storage... I love my fake tree because it is paid for, already has lights, and it looks really pretty. However, it requires that I store it for an entire year before I get to use it again, and it doesn't smell like a christmas tree. So, I bought a candle. The end.
