I don't buy one. I 'celebrate' Christmas, to an extent, but I don't bother with the tree or decorations. Because of that, I'm not sure what the price would be.

Fake, US$15 and below. We don't hunt for pine trees like a madman in the Philippines, or even have capabilities to do so.

fake, only because I can put it in the box and bring it out the next year. As for cost, neither me nor my parents ever bought a real one, so I just guessed at random.

Fake, they're cheaper, last longer, and look nicer.

If I were to buy one it'd be a real one.

Cost for a 6ft tree here: Around 30 €, or ~US$40.

We've had an artificial tree for as long as I can remember, and it's always been the same one. I think real trees for 6ft are around £30-£45. Not sure though.

Fake, but would prefer a real one, as we've never had one before. My parents have used the same fake Christmas tree since the late 1980s.

I don't know, but after doing a little bit of searching, I voted for £30 - £45 for a 6ft tree.

My parents have a fake one (that they've put up already :| ) that they've had since the 80s and will probably keep for another 20 odd years, heh.
Myself, I wouldn't really bother. I went on a major decorating spree a few years ago but they just get in the way and are a pain to take down again.

Fake, my parents have been using theirs for just over 11 years. Although if you know where to look you can get a real tree for free.

I worked around that by just not taking it down.

I think I got up to May or something before it was pretty much a "Pull it down or I'll throw it out" thing.
