The holiday season comes with festivities, colorful lights and a lot of decisions. The most important decision, of course, is to decide which camp you’re in a real tree or fake tree?

There are positives and negatives to both, and those who grew up with one or the other sometimes have strong opinions about which one is best.

No matter your choice, this annual tree ritual is important. If you have your artificial tree, retrieve it from the attic, closet or basement and get to work.

Real tree people have some work ahead of them. C5 has made it easy by listing several places that sell Christmas trees. They are listed by distance from Charlotte and include information about price range, tree sizes, and types. Happy hunting!
