Back when I lived in St. Louis we went out to this Christmas tree farm and we cut down a tree. It’s a fun thing but I can’t really say it’s a lot better than going to Home Depot. When you go to Home Depot and pick out a tree you have about 50 trees to choose from. When we were at this “farm” we had about a thousand trees to pick from and believe me, we looked at every tree at least twice.
Walking through mud, judging the trees and trying to remember the ones we liked. Then finally deciding on a tree about a mile away from the cash register. I think the whole ordeal took us about 4 hours. When we pick a tree out at Home Depot the whole process takes 4 hours – including decorating the thing!!
