My husband and I got up early today and headed out to a Christmas tree farm that I had heard about from a friend. My family and I had always gone to one particular farm in the area but the prices were getting steeper by the year. This farm ( which is a local best kept secret ) has trees for only $ 20!, yup $ 20!! You tag it then go back in December and cut it down.
The gate opened up at 9:00 promptly and the crowd of hearty New Englanders sprinted across the fields like frolicking children to quickly claim their own tree!
It was a lot of fun!
“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”
