We have a 4.5 ft. tree in the MH. It gets "cozy" in here but can't do without one! When we had the house we had a 9' artificial tree, as my DH was a volunteer fireman and saw first hand the danger of fresh trees that were cut to far in advance. Hope to get ours up tomorrow.
We live in an area where it's very easy to get real trees but we've had an artificial tree for the last 12 years and it still looks really good so we'll have it for more years. It is bigger than what really fits in my livingroom so I have to temporarily move a desk and set it in that space. We really enjoy getting up in the morning and turning on the lights. The cats love taking turns who gets to sit under the tree.
We had an artifical one for years but it was getting a little beat up so it got tossed. Last year we didn't even put up a tree. We always go out to dinner Christmas Eve and the next morning go over to DS house for the better part of the day. His mother will pick GS up at noon. I've never had a place in the living room for a tree and you don't see it much in the family room.
Next year will be different. Since I'm getting rid of the love seat and moving the TV to that wall there will be a perfect place for a tree.
Since DD and I are very allergic to pine trees, we had an artificial one. We used to have a large artificial Christmas tree but since we have been living in our townhome, we have a medium size table top one. We still decorate it and put lights on it and it is pretty.
