Fake Christmas Tree = Fake Christmas.
If you don't get a real one then don't bother with Christmas.

Discuss... :D

Isn't most everything about the modern notion of Christmas fake? Perhaps a fake tree just perpetuates the theme.

So, does No Christmas Tree = No Christmas?

Haven't had one for decades and don't feel I've been missing out.

If you're looking for a sine qua non, then No Christ = No Christmas! ;)

I've 4 kids and they insist on it. Three of them are well passed the magic stage but even when they were they know that Santa, like Jesus, doesn't really stand up to much scrutiny.

Even if Santa really had been coming down the chimney for centuries, that'd just make him a dirty old man.

(Even older than that recycled Ronnie Corbett joke)
That's up there with "If we all pull together we can have a white Christmas".

I was unaware of this scam. It's terrible, unscrupulous retailers trying to offload Easter trees as fake Christmas trees... excuse me while I plug in my fibre optic Hogswatch tree. And by plug in, I mean wake up the daemon that powers it.

Lot of fakery going on in the US where four out of five Christmas trees are fake. The two White House trees are real though -- the National Christmas tree just outside the White House fence and the indoor tree in the Blue Room. There have been fakes on the tree though, notably one of the Clintons' trees had a stocking full of candy for Bill and another filled with coal for (Republican Speaker of the House) Newt Gingrich. Fake presents ... now that's a whole other thing.

Have always had a fake tree. Cheaper, easier, safer, less tidy up. Losing out on the scent I guess, maybe should stick a car air freshener on the back of it. #classy

I'm not sure they sell them in giant sizes, but here's the next best thing. You can get them all strung together in packs. Imagine these festooned around your sitting room walls. Perfect for Christmas decorations and you can just tear one open every time you need a bit of freshening. You could extend the festive cheer to the bathroom also.

Fantastic; you won't even have to leave thee room to fart.
