I don't have a Christmas tree (well i have a 30cm one but not a proper sized one).
I also have nowhere to put a Christmas tree and then there is the added dilemma of how would i keep my kids from playing with it.
So depressing - i want a Christmas tree!

No not yet. We always put it up in December sometime. MIL usually puts hers up in October, but hasn't yet this year.

I voted other because I dont have a Christmas tree lol
I got so excited decorating it last year that I accidentally snapped it in half
So we are yet to buy one - will probably shop for it in the next few weeks...I want either a purple or black one and I want the decorations to be (for a purple tree): black, white & silver. Or for a black tree: purple, white & silver......Id been telling DF this for a whole year that its the themed I'd like and he was all for it.....until the other day when he was like "Oh but theres no green" (its his fav colour) and I was like "well I told you I didn't want a traditional tree any more" but he took it as "oh so you can have your favourite colour but I can't have mine"..........So now we havent yet decided what we're doing.
I was just so sick of having a crappy plain green tree with a gazillian multicoloured random decorations.....my entire life is messy cluttered chaos which *I* love but I just wanted a nice neat themed chrissy tree for our family... lol

i havnt taken my christmas tree down for about 4 years!! it just gets put in a cupboard, then gets brought out again the next year. saves decorating it, then pulling it all down then finding somewhere to put the decorations.
not sure what to do this year though as DS will get into it (and the presents). if we had a playpen i would put that around it, might put it all in the portacot.
what do others do to stop little kids getting into it?

No, not until december. I am in financial denial about Christmas. And I don't have a spare spot of floor for a christmas tree atm.

This is the first year I've had to worry about little one and the tree too as last year he was only 10 months and not at all interested in it.
This year is a different story. He's 20 months now and he thought the baubles were like his normal tennis ball and plastic ball that he likes to roll to me. So of course he went and took the bauble and rolled it over to me I put it back on the tree and told him, whenever he touched the tree or went to pull the baubles off "GENTLE" - did that a few times and he stopped trying to pull anything off. He just likes to sort of pat and gently feel the tree and tinsel etc.
He also seems to like sitting in front of it just looking up at it. I was going to put a playpen sort of fence around it but I don't think we'll need to now.
