We’ve always had our tree in the living room. Always. In spite of the fact we rarely spend any time in the living room, at least until Christmas morning, and then only because that’s where the tree is placed.
I asked the family why we have the tree in a room we never use and they looked at me funny, as if I’d asked them why their arms are attached to their torsos.
So tonight, while they were in the garage having band practice, I moved the tree into the family room with the TV and the sectional sofa. Not too difficult, since I’ve yet to put any decorations on the thing. Although DH said “the tree looks good” when he plopped his hiney on the sofa tonight. Maybe there’s no point in putting decorations on it… all they notice are the lights.
Anyway, the family room is the room where we spend the most time, next to the kitchen/dining room, and in my mind it makes sense to put the Christmas tree there, where it can be enjoyed.
Seriously, it took more than six hours for them to even notice it had been put up in the living room.

Where do you put your tree? Or do you do a tree in every room?
Is the placement of your Christmas tree based on tradition, or based on function and practicality?
