Will you put up a Christmas tree this holiday season?

0
(0)

Is your holiday season incomplete without a Christmas tree? For many RVers, the answer is yes. Oh, some of us put up smaller trees than back when the kids were small and Santa came down the chimney each year. And some of us aren’t really into buying a tree off a lot anymore, so we buy an artificial one from our favorite hardware store and use it year after year.

Many RVtravel.com readers live in their RVs full-time, and … well, there isn’t a whole bunch of space in our tiny abodes. Still, where there’s a will there’s a way, and even a two-foot mini-tree can make our mobile homes festive.

So what about you? Tree or no tree?

Remember, it can take a few moments for the poll to load. So stand by, the wait will be worth it.

My family really wants to decorate this year. Or at least a tree. I am like can we forgo the Xmas stuff this year and just enjoy each other? I have a feeling I may be out voted. But otherwise hoping for a quiet Xmas this year. With just me the husband and daughter and no other family I would love a quiet holiday without fuss. We shall see. Happy holidays all.

For the past 10 years, we have been using a Norfolk Pine that was given for my mother’s funeral. My DW saved and nurtured that foot and a half thing into a wonderful tree that is about six and one half feet tall. The branch spread is about five feet, so we can attach many lights and many ornaments.

For the last 15 years of full-time rving, we always put up our 2 1/2′ ceramic tree that travels with us.

For the last 27 years it has been a tradition to go out in the national forest and get our tree. Our kids are grown and the tradition still lives on with our kids and now grandkids. We all look forward to the day we head up the mountain with thermoses of hot chocolate and snacks packed to get our trees. The years where we contend with snow are the most exciting with snowballs thrown and a snowman constructed. . For those wondering, thinning out the trees is healthy for the forest. Merry Christmas all!

Allergic to real trees. Otherwise would always have a real one. Best memories are taking the family to cut down our Christmas tree.

Up on Tuesday. Granddaughters helped decorate Wednesday. New tree. Too old to manage getting a real tree…lol. Plus terrible allergies. Looks real. Very pretty. It’s a Dunhill Fir. Got it on sale after Christmas last year. Today’s price is double! (What inflation?) 10 light patterns. Husband & I both like same one….that is very strange :-). Plus every ornament has meaning. Most from our RV trips, places we’ve visited. Some when my son was little (granddaughters love that). Some gifts. Always a joy decorating. Brings back memories.

I bought a very full, pre-lit 7-foot artificial tree two months ago when they first came in at Home Depot. Good thing, because that model was gone pretty fast and hasn’t been restocked. It’s our first tree since 2004. We were traveling in our RV most or all of the time for 13 years, then bought another house. This year I finally missed having a holiday tree. We put it up right away to make sure I liked it. Yes, but it’s so heavy we just left it up since early October! I decorated it after Thanksgiving. I thought I’d really looking at the old, favorite ornaments I saved when we down-sized years ago but quite honestly, I like the tree better un-decorated with just its gazillion tiny white lights! That says a lot about how we’ve simplified our lives over the years.

We wrapped a light string around our 10 foot cactus and decided to make it our tree!

About 30 years ago I bought an artificial 5′ scrawny tree at K-Mart for $5.00! I told my wife if nothing else “for 5 bucks…I’ll put the dumb thing on the deck and hang bread on it for the birds”. Well, we nicknamed it Charlie Brown and Charlie gets decorated every year upstairs in the living room with all white lites and bulbs etc. It is beautiful! – when decorated. (It is Charlie Brown’s otherwise!)

We have a 7′ foot artificial tree in the lower level family room also. We stopped buying real trees after our 2 kids left home and have subsequently passed away. We are blessed with a granddaughter and husbnd and their family of 2 girls and 2 boys, oldest being 9 on Christmas day 2021! So life renews and we wish all our Rv friends out there and the staff at Rv Travel a wonderful Merry Christmas and a safe New Year!

Our tree is about a foot and a half tall and sits on the coffee table. Leg lamp in the dining room window, and some garland on our bar. Done.

Given all the ornaments and other decorations that we have acquired over the last 30 years, we usually put up 2 or 3 real trees in our sticks and bricks. At the very least, we’ll put up one tree, if not more, depending on pricing and availability of real trees in our general vicinity.

Yes. About 3′ tall pre-lite straight out of the box. Quick, easy and done. The day of large real trees are over. A lot of work and clean up. The kids do all that stuff and we visit them during the holidays.

My wife and I put up 5 artificial trees throughout our townhouse. The largest tree has over 550 ornaments. It takes us several days but it’s a tradition that makes our house very beautiful every X-Mas.

We already have the Christmas decorations up. We have a 2′ ceramic tree with lights and decorations set up on our steering wheel table.

If we do it’ll have to be one of those little ceramic trees as our 23’ tt doesn’t have floor space for a tree. Lol
