hen it comes to Christmas trees, are you a real tree kind of person or are you happy to hang your ornaments on a fake tree? While some people don’t mind a plastic tree (and some of them actually look remarkably real), others pine for that real tree and wouldn’t even consider one that wasn’t once alive.
A dad on Twitter this week is DEFINITELY in Camp Real Tree — as you can see in this hilarious video his daughter posted of his reaction when his wife brought home a fake tree.
Around Christmas time, the fake tree vs. real tree debate can get pretty heated.
Some people swear by their artificial trees. They can take a lot of hassle out of Christmas decorating with some even come pre-lit. Plus, they don’t shed those pine needles that you’re somehow still finding when you sweep up in July.
Other people simply can’t imagine having a tree that wasn’t fresh-cut.
For them, giving up the yearly search for the tree that’s just a little bit uneven-in-the-perfect-way and has that real pine smell is basically the true meaning of Christmas.
In a video posted this week on Twitter, one dad definitely wants a 100%-real Christmas tree. And he is not shy about letting his feelings be known.
Twitter user @madnap21 posted a video of her mom telling her dad that she was considering a fake Christmas tree, and his reaction is making people on Twitter weep with laughter.
His quiet outrage and how he calmly grabs his shoes and leaves is super relatable.
He’s not mad — he just can’t believe his wife would betray him like this.
His sad face when he realizes they bought an artificial tree instead of a real one has, obviously, already become a gif.
That exaggerated frown! He looks like a cartoon! This is a meme waiting to happen.
