How we love a good rivalry. Yankees vs. Red Sox. Toilet paper over the roll vs. under the roll.

And now that the Christmas season is upon us, it’s time for the Real Tree vs. Artificial Tree debate to get underway. We know that some folks insist that a real tree is the only way to go, and discussions of alternatives is nothing short of blasphemy.

We know there are people who love their hassle-free fake trees, as well, and they will bare knuckle box anyone who tries to take them away.

All in the spirit of Christmas, of course. We’d like to hear from both sides. Tell us why you prefer fake or real and if you’ve got photos to share, all the better. Send your tree arguments to staff writer Mark LaFlamme at or call 200-1481.
