Are You Going to Use a Real Christmas Tree This Year? — Survey of the Day
While the smell of pine is every bit as much of a part of Christmas as candy canes and your drunk Uncle Marvin, the majority of Americans will be opting for a tree of the fake plastic variety this year.
According to a survey of 2,207 adults from Harris Interactive and CouponCabin.com, 54 percent will either be buying or using an artificial tree this holiday season. Of those going the synthetic route, 61 percent said it's because it's cheaper and 36 percent are doing so because it's better for the enviroment.
As for wintry tree smell that they will be missing...well, there is a spray for that.
