(Ph. © Patrick Cline / Lonny)In some households, the debate over fake versus real Christmas trees can get heated. Your vegan son suggests making a tree out of upcycled bamboo, but your daughter thinks her childhood will be invalidated if the entire family isn't present at the ceremonial cutting-down of a resplendent pine. We're raising the stakes even further: Let's say you go fake and really revel in it with a colored tree, such as the blue beauty pictured here. Would the cerulean-hued leaves cause a domestic disturbance, or could it be seen as a sophisticated and seasonally-appropriate alterna-tree? Discuss amongst yourselves.
