Does anyone have experience with the new polyethelene kind? Where they make a mold of an actual living tree, so it’s very detailed and life-like? Something like this one?
I NEVER thought I’d be considering a fake tree, as the real ones are just about my favorite thing in the world, but it’s looking like my choices are fake tree or dead real tree. DH promised we could always have a real one, but failed to mention the differences between European and American Christmas trees. And I was too dumb to anticipate them. Since there is no space to grow Christmas trees, and you’re not allowed to cut down any wild ones, and the types are weird and halloweenish and exuding enough sap to coat everything in your house, and the North Sea weather makes them start out looking like the American ones do when they’ve been thrown out on the curb mid-January…I’m adjusting what I went to what’s possible.
Actually, I’d probably still get a sickly little one if they smelled like I feel a Christmas tree should, but there’s nothing there
Is anyone else a real tree lover, who’s been forced to go artificial? Is it possible to enjoy a fake tree, without feeling like you have a huge hunk of ugly plastic sitting in your house? Have you seen/felt any of the new polyethelene kinds in person?
