Last week’s poll asked if you preferred white or colored lights and a small majority of people said that they were like me (you poor fuckers) and liked the multicolored lights better. We did see that some people had other options that I didn’t include but argued were multicolored anyway such as blue and white, etc, etc, etc. Anyway, an interesting poll that I must say showed me that more people than I thought picked all white. Boo on you! I kid :-)
This week’s poll comes courtesy of Mrs. Robinson’s suggestion that we do a real or fake tree poll. Up until last year I had been using a fake tree since I was about 10 or 11 years old. My original reasons for that was because I didn’t want my parents having to lug a tree from some far off land, hurting their old selves (if I only knew how young they were at the time as I’m rapidly approaching the same age), or dealing with what I thought was the environmental destruction of trees. So we bought a very nice fake tree that kept through last year when I passed it along to a family who needed a tree and was happy to use it–I wonder if they are using it this year?!
Well last year we had a real tree that we got from Revak Nursery in Lakeville. My wife had a coupon (which always pleases a Budget Nazi (TM)) so we cut what appeared to be a stubby little thing and I hauled it back to the barn where we paid, they wrapped it, and we shoved it into our car before a short drive home that found needles poking me in the beard as we went. But that stubby little tree ended up being a big tree in our house but it was definitely nice to smell the pine (without artificial sprays) and watch as the needles ended up all over the damn place over the next few weeks.

Anyway, I’m a big fan of both real and fake trees for different reasons but no one gives a shit what I think so go ahead and comment on about your own preference for trees. After you do so be sure to vote and then feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
