Christmas Tree Traditions

We’d love to hear your real Christmas tree traditions.  Do you go to a tree farm and select just the right tree, or buy a pre-cut tree from the farm?  Go on the wagon ride, drink hot chocolate, have a candy cane and watch the tree farmer bale your tree?  Maybe you can’t get to a farm so you opt for a mail order Christmas tree.  What about decorating the tree?  Who gets to place the star?  Any special ornaments on the tree? When does it go up and when does it come down? Any particular Christmas songs while you trim the tree?

Leave a comment below and share your special Christmas tree traditions.

    We had a beautiful tree shipped to us in Arizona, from Bishop Farms. Having grown up in Vermont is was a wonderful way to bring back the memories of trudging thru waist deep snow as a child, to help my father find the perfect tree. Sure was easier to just open the fed ex box!! We have had so many compliments on the tree and many can’t believe it’s real!! Thanks for a wonderful, fresh cut Vermont tree, still holding it’s needles after 3 weeks in the house. We will be back next year. Thanks again.

    When I was in Jr. High, my parents went shopping the day after Christmas and came home with an artificial tree in the trunk, (50% off). I was horrified when they procedded to dismantle the real tree and re-decorate the fake one. Ever since then I have gone in search of the perfect real tree,usually the day after Thanksgiving. For many years my son went along and cut it down for me, but now he’ll be doing that for his daughter. There is something magical about the whole experience!

    The Fraser Fir Christmas tree is our favorite. We buy it the first week of December, store it outside to keep it fresh, put it up a couple of weeks before Christmas and take it down just after New Years. Each adult child in the family is supposed to bring a new ornament for the tree each year. As children, we piled on the silver icycles, but that “tradition” has since been banned in our family.
