We cut down our Christmas Tree on Saturday. Its a beauty! I think I want to own a Christmas Tree farm when I grow up. You know, with the hot chocolate and the crackling fire pit and a horse drawn wagon ride to pick out your tree. (That is NOT the experience I had, but that's what I'd do). Fresh wreaths and an old fashioned tree shaker too.
Cutting down and then trimming the tree is one of my favorite traditions. I know my family loves it too. Seeing our favorite ornaments (and I get a new one every year on this day too!) and hanging them up really is the start of the holiday season for me.
