With the most wonderful time of the year just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about dragging out your Christmas decorations and setting up the star of the show, your tree.

The Christmas period is a time when people come together to celebrate, but who knew it would also be a time for great debate over tree preference? Do you buy a real pine tree to decorate, or stick to an artificial tree?

Now, lifestyle guru Martha Stewart has weighed in on the conversation, and her answer might just surprise you.

Speaking to the US Today Show, the 81-year-old defended the use of artificial trees, saying she doesn’t have the time to clean up after the real trees.

“I absolutely prefer artificial trees now, I do not want needles all over my house,” she said.

The businesswoman maintained that not only is the setup far easier, but due to the decision to use multiple trees in her decorating, she doesn’t have to constantly worry about the trees drying out.

When it comes to decorating her artificial trees, Stewart said she opts for a more classical look, going for the “all white” Christmas light look.

People preparing to decorate their homes for Christmas shared their thoughts on the debate on social media.

With both sides having valid points, it really does just come down to personal preference.
