It's a decision families make every year - are you willing to withstand the cold, sap and needles necessary for an 'authentic' Christmas?
Sure, everyone appreciates some good holiday decor. But have you ever been tempted to take it easy on yourself and purchase an artificial Christmas tree? Purists won't go near them, but for others, the thought of chopping down a tree - leaving needles, sap and leaking water in your living room - is not their idea of a happy holiday. Despite the hassle, real trees outsell their artificial cousins by more than a 3-to-1 margin each season, according to the National Christmas Tree Association. Bear in mind, of course, artificial trees can be reused every year. Tewksbury Patch Readers, what do you think?

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and those of us who have procrastinated need to make plans and could use some advice.
