My fondest member of Christmas is that of decorating the family’s cut Christmas tree and my 3’ live tree, and later planting it.

Over the years the traditional Christmas tree has changed with the times from a framework to hang the ornaments on, to real trees, and later to artificial evergreen trees. Live, cut, and artificial all have positive points and some not so good. It is up to each family.
