I do a big wreath that I hang on my gate in Northern California for the neighbors to enjoy. We use lower branches off live trees to make it, so nothing is cut down. Because I go to Hawaii for Christmas, I don't do any interior decorating.

A lot of people cut their own in the National Forest that surrounds us, or they cut their own at a tree farm. I haven't put up a tree in two years. My daughter is almost 20 and doesn't live at home, otherwise I would put one up. My cats really like having one up, but they make a mess out of it and the ornaments...so that's a really good reason NOT to put one up.

My husband and I are the fastest tree shoppers around. We are usually in and out, with the tree in the truck, in 5-10 minutes.
