The era of REAL CHRISTMAS TREES in people's living rooms looks like it's quickly . . . and surprisingly . . . coming to an end.

According to a new survey, only ONE in FIVE families say they're going to have a real Christmas tree this year. 13% will buy a tree from a garden store or Christmas tree lot, and 5% will dig up their own tree for the house.  49% of households will put up an artificial tree that's green like the real thing. 19% will buy an artificial tree that's a different color, like white or red.  And 14% say they aren't going to have a tree this year.  The main reason people gave for going with an artificial tree or no tree over a real one is the cost difference. The second-most common reason was that people felt buying a real tree just to throw it away a month later isn't very "green."

I know that I have a fake tree.  It just seems...........easier, you know?  Anyway, what about you guys?  Do you have a real or fake Christmas tree?  Is it what you prefer, or is it out of necessity?  Why'd you make that decision? Tell me all about it and we'll talk about your answers on the air!

Really yours,
