Peter Facinelli Solves His Tree Trouble

Since actor Peter Facinelli and wife Jennie Garth have different standards when it comes to the perfect Christmas tree, this year they decided to compromise – they put up two trees!

“My wife wants to do the fake tree because it’s easy but I am so anti fake tree,” Peter told PEOPLE at the Everybody’s Fine New York premiere. “In one room we do a nice fake tree, and in the other room I get to have my tree with all the pine needles falling all over the place.”

The 36-year-old Twilight star says that he loves the adventure of picking out a real Christmas tree with his three daughters, Luca, 12, Lola, 7, and Fiona, 3.

What’s fun is that I get to go and pick out the tee with the kids, and then it becomes an experience. Sometimes I’ll hide behind the tree. I used to pretend I was the talking three. The kids loved it. I would be like, ‘Hey, pick me – I am the best Christmas tree!’

He goes on to say that Christmas would be impossible without the help of his wife: “I have no time to go Christmas shopping this year. She called me today and said, ‘So, I go the Christmas shopping done for so and so and so.’ I’m like, ‘You’re a godsend.’”

So what’s on Peter’s wish list this year?

“I’m so blessed I couldn’t possibly imagine asking for anything else.”

How sweet!

    Wow, must be nice to be able to not make up your mind and just have it all. Some people compromise by not getting a tree at all because they can’t afford it.

    having grown up in a hanukah-celebrating household, I didn’t realize this pine needle issue until the other day when I was watching some sitcom or something where the mom had to make a bunch of wreaths and she ended up with pine needles all over herself and her house.

    Oh, the cultural difficulties of a non-christian in America.
