As we get closer to Christmas more and more families are putting up their Christmas trees, proudly stringing lights and strategically placing ornaments. In my house, I sat on the couch and the kids did it all this year. We can all agree that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! What we don't all agree on is what type of tree is the best - a real tree or an artificial tree. Does it even matter? Can you even tell the difference between a real tree and a fake tree?

Over the weekend I went to a friends house and said I liked his artificial tree. He told me that it was a real tree he had cut down in the South Hills. Oops! Maybe he should have picked a better tree...or maybe I need to get better at identifying real vs fake trees. I want to see if I am the only one who has trouble telling the difference between a real tree or an artificial one. Granted with this test you can't touch or smell the trees, but if a tree just looks good - isn't that good enough?

Look at these trees and guess whether it is a real tree or artificial tree - share with your friends to see if they can get them all. Answers are at the bottom in case you get "stumped".

How did you do? Can your friends and family do any better?
