Artificial or Real Christmas Trees? The Hudson Valley Has Decided
Which does the Hudson Valley prefer: artificial or real Christmas trees?
As a kid growing up, my family always had real Christmas trees in our home. We would go and cut them down or sometimes just get one from one of the vendors on the side of the road throughout the area. As I got older and eventually got a place of my own, I went the artificial, pre-lit tree route which I pretty much have continued with to this day.
