What Size Is Your Tree?

United States
December 6, 2015 4:00pm CST
I've noticed that myLotters are busy talking about getting their Christmas trees up and decorated. Mine has been up for a week already. It's 6 feet tall and stands in the corner of my living room. It has all white lights and an assortment of ornaments (some that I've had for years and some that my children & grandchildren have made). Every year I say I'm going to get a smaller tree but then I'm happy once mine is up and decorated. I love Christmas and all the festivities that come with the holiday season. So, I'm just being nosy...what size is your tree?

If my tree were up it would be five feet tall. Right now, it's about box-sized.

Isn't it amazing how they squash trees into those boxes and then when assembled they are quite large

@Marilynda1225 Amazing for sure, how do they do that?

That's the funniest thing I've heard or read all day/morning @Rollo1! I don't even know why, but it really is. I'm not sure if it's the slight sarcasm, or the way it subtly rolled-out onto the page so casually - "Right now, it's about box-sized." I guess I'm easily amused... Thx!

My brother just bought a new one this year and I think it is 7-8 ft tall.

Wow you must have lots of space for a big tree like that

@Marilynda1225 Our living room and dining room are together which makes it look more open. I think our ceilings are 9 foot but not sure.

Mine is a 32" fiber optic table top tree. I have no place for anything bigger. I can't rearrange anything to make a place for a larger tree, so I've had to go small. I just pulled it out of the box and set it up. It's colorful and changes color from multi to all one color - green, red, and blue. I can't put any ornaments on it, the bad part, but it works for now.

@just4him your fiber optic tree sounds really pretty especially that it changes colors. I would probably find that very relaxing

@Marilynda1225 It is. It looks beautiful when the light is off and the only light is the tree.

Mine is six feet too. It looked good in our previous house but it could look a bit dwarfed in our present home.. the roof is really high here. I am yet to put it up. Next week.. its always in the second week of December for us..

Hope the tree still works when you put it up and isn't too small. I know when I was looking for my house I kept in mind where would I put my tree. Both my daughter and real estate agent both laughed at me but it was important that my house had a good spot for my Christmas tree

I haven't got mine up yet as I'm not at home, but mine is no more than 2 ft high. It's artificial - is yours real?

@jabouk my tree is artificial. I haven't had a real tree since I was a kid and my father would be in charge of caring for it. Once I got married I switched to artificial.

We do not have ours up yet, but traditionally it is 12-15 FT tall. I assume it will be the same this year. We make a big to do about it, go pick it and each take a turn cutting it down.

@mom210 that sounds like a huge tree but I can imagine it's fun cutting it down, bringing it home and then decorating it

@Marilynda1225 oh yes we have a wonderful time hunting, and finding the tree. Plus the farm down the road charges the same price no matter what size tree you get, so it is only $35

Ours is 6ft. We put trimmings on it from the past year. Our kids carefully wrapped each, including the lights, which we bought as early as September 2014. They're as good as new! But, of course, we also added some new decors.

@Marilynda1225 Yes, Ma'am! And those need just a little creativity. Maybe a different color of ribbon here & there does the trick!

I'll probably get mine up today. It is nearly six feet tall. I made ours last year when Vince was away for six weeks just before Christmas. It is a plastic netting cone and I just covered it with tinsel and ornaments.

@Marilynda1225 We'll probably put it up today so I'll do a post on it. I actually have photos from last year but it is best if I put two photos - a before and after so I'll do a post.

Our tree went up in this past week also. Its a smaller tree only 5 1/2 feet tall I believe. But it is very full and we really like it. We used to have 2 huge trees, a 7 and an 8 foot tree. It was SO much work decorating them both, but when you're younger you have the time and energy and we had 1 tree for "show" and the other was for us to put our gifts under.

@juliaacv I hear you when you say being young and having energy. My Christmas decorating has been scaled down considerably as I've gotten older. I still put things around but not as much as I used to

@Marilynda1225 I only use a small fraction of what we own, but it stores well and one day I'll pass it down to our son when he has big enough home for it all.

Our tree is 5ft. We haven't taken it down in 10 years. I wish it had been an artificial tree.

We don't really celebrate Christmas, but I used felt to sew a small Christmas tree for my children two years ago. It's about two feet tall, and we can hang some ornaments on it. Sometimes, my children treat it as a pillow as it's stuffed with cotton. I have read posts about Christmas tree, lights and ornaments being used for years, I think this is really sweet tradition for the family.

Your felt tree sounds perfect especially if your children can use it as a stuffed pillow
