What say you?

If live, is it a family tradition to chop it down or just buy one at the local nursery?

Fake tree. The fanatics can put it up on Labor Day, take it down after New Years Day.

Always had live until a grandchild had allergies so now we have 2 artificial in house and still get live one for outside. We picked out a live one each year with my children and had it dug up with root ball, after Christmas we planted it and marked the year. We still choose a live one with grandkids and then plant it. Then we make seed balls and cookie cutter seed ornaments to tie on it for the birds as well as pine comes with peanut butter smeared on them and rolled in seeds which the grandchildren love helping make and hanging on the tree. My eight yr. old grandson recognizes more birds and their calls than alot of adults do. The second articial tree is a small tree decorated with popcorn and cranberries we string as well as cookie ornaments and candy canes. This is where Santa leaves the fruit and candy for Christmas as it is in the dining room.

I also string popcorn and cranberries! Have had that tradition since the kids were young. I don't put lights on my tree. It's an old fashioned theme with handmade wooden ornaments,bows,candy canes, handmade ornaments of various kinds. I have a Lady Liberty angel on top! Very colorful.

Thats a great tradition to plant the trees, and each one has it's own memories.
Your grandson has a gift. It's a great hobby. I have a friend who is a big time bird watcher as is her father. They travel the world to bird watch!
Enjoy the season!

once you "chop it down",
it's not "live" anymore

I played my best for Him
rum pum pum pum
Then He smiled at me
rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.

If you have it balled then the tree can be planted after Christmas.

The most notable rendition was created by the most unlikely combination of Bing Crosby and David Bowie. This version of Little Drummer Boy was a massive hot for the artists and was in fact Bing Crosby's most successful recording since the legendary White Christmas.

Little Drummer Boy: Lyrics

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

So to honor Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
When we come.

Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.
