How tall is your Christmas Tree?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
My family makes a point of getting our trees as tall as we can fit into out living room (and generally end up having to cut off the top few inches because we overestimated). That makes for a tidy eight feet of Green Lovin'. In my old house, we could buy ten-foot trees, and then even my father's (and now my) six-foot-three-plus frame could not put the star on top of the tree. Those were the days.

How tall is your Christmas tree?

    I must have a dirty mind... I immediately thought of something else. Like what you'd hear in a phone dating message in December.

    Man, that's just the wrong post to follow mine. Maybe you better edit that before Belle & Kate see it.

    We've got a cathedral ceiling in the living room/kitchen area, so my family could really go overboard with our Christmas trees if we wanted to?we're talking 25?30 feet here! :eek:

    My mom doesn't like big trees because of all the needles they drop, so we usually get little six-footers that we cut from our property.

    We don't have a Christmas tree yet. We once got a 15 footer from a florist called "Ah Sam" There was no way we could decorate it ourselves, so we had them do it...Never again.

    It shed needles like crazy.

    They need to genetically engineer trees that don't she needles.

    MacAgent, you are the coolest. How do you decorate it? With those pruning poles hardware stores sell with strings of lights gripped in the pincers? Do you put preents under it or inside?

    We just got an 8 footer a few hours ago.

    We have a 1 bedroom apt. so it's not easy to fit a tree in here...

    We just used the top half of my mothers fake tree... looks good though.

    We don't have a real Christmas tree anymore, heh. We bought an artificial one a few years back. It's about 6 feet tall (small little thing).

    It's funny, we don't "put up the tree", we "assemble the tree".

    Hey, thanks.

    Well, it has the advantage of being reachable from my balcony, so that makes it somewhat easier, but we have some poles with hooks on the end. I hope IT is a hover pack or something, that would make it really easy.

    Inside. Don't want to get anything rained on.
