What's the big deal? Tree or no tree?

My wife wants to put up a live Christmas tree, and lights outside each and every year. Water the tree every day so it don't dry out and pose a fire hazzard. Don't forget to mix the room temp water with room temp Sprite, and add in an asprin. Fix all the burnt out lights, or buy new ones, so we can do the same thing all over again next year because all the new ones bought this year won't work next year. Our boys are grown and could care less about this ritual. I agree with them. Why take all this time and effort to put this crap up and then have to take it all down a month later? I believe as long as we celebrate Christmas for the right reason, we are doing what is most important, and it doesn't take all the hoop la of trees and lights and a billion other things that cost hard earned bucks to accomplish celebrating the real reason for the season.
