Although I’ve had an artificial tree for years now, nothing can quite beat the smell of a freshly cut, live Christmas tree.
One of the things that makes Christmas such an immersive holiday is the memories you make. For me, those memories always included a live tree, even if my sister was allergic. It doesn’t matter if you want to walk onto a lot and choose one that’s already been cut down, or if you’re looking for the full Griswold Family Christmas experience.
There is a Christmas tree lot or farm out there, waiting for you and your family to come and make some holiday memories. Who’s ready?
