Ace are advertising a 6ft fake one with barbles and festive lights for Dhs99, but they say that real ones arrive in store on 2nd December, prices not mentioned so probably extortionate. I strongly object to the use of real Xmas trees unless they are planted outside afterwards. Not likely in this climate.

I have already got my tree up- although it is currently not decorated- thats the plan for the weekend! and then the christmas lights switching on ceremony sometime next week! but am thinking a real one would be fab!- maybe I could have one by my front door and one inside-hmm maybe a bit excessive!

Mine was from Artical, the only decent one I could find at the time- although think I peaked a bit early in regards to buying my decorations as theres soo many more now! sigh.

I particularly liked the xmas 'trees' but think the large ones were 229 dhs a piece and you'd need at least 3 (but really more) to make a bit of an impact...

how do you plant a tree outside afterwards? are they pine trees or some local type stuff?
the pine ones never come with roots to be replanted do they?

I didn't realise it was a competition until after I accepted their invitation, it is some professional bird who decorates all the trees in the Hotels etc, think it will be interesting.
