Christmas Trees -- How many do you have?

How many Christmas trees do you put up in your house each Christmas season? And is it/are they real or artificial.

I remember as a child everyone had just one! Most were real ones. Then along came the 60s and formal living rooms and family rooms in the ranch style houses everyone was moving into. So two trees -- one in each. The formal living room faced the front and a more "perfect" "decorator" tree went in that window -- often color themed as to lights and ornaments. The family room was more casual.

Somewhere in the 90s trees began to be placed in (gasp) kitchens and baths and bedrooms too! Often "themed" to the area (cookie cutters, cooking gadgets, etc. on the kitchen tree and shells on the bathroom one).

I see on facebook that people -- ordinary people are putting up 10 trees each holiday season.

So are you a one tree person or a one in every room even the bathroom person or somewhere in between.

And are your tree/trees real or artificial?

And what things decorate your tree/trees?
