Would you pay $1,000 for a real Christmas tree? That's $77 a foot!

That's what they're going for in New York -- and if you want it delivered and set up, that's an extra $250.

Thankfully, around here the average price for a real fir is $50.82 with 78 percent of households displaying a Christmas tree. Of those, 81 percent are artificial.

That got Rik and I arguing over which is better, a real Christmas tree or artificial?
