we gave up having trees at Christmas, our ceilings are very high and we always needed the tallest, and therefore expensive trees. Plus the fact we usually go away over the holiday period so we do'nt even get to enjoy it. However, I always decorate the place with lots of real holly garlands and greenery from the garden, we have a Strawberry tree that has lovely colourfull berries and makes a nice Christmas'y display. so our home does'nt look like Scrooge in in residence!
Ironically, last year, some one very kindly dumped their discarded xmas tree in my garden, so I still ended up having to dispose of one!!
