Soo… I just can’t help myself, but I am just in the Christmas mood! This year especially with the house, moving, and work… oh and the lack of snow, it’s been hard to get into the Christmas spirit. We are almost half way through December and I have no Christmas decorations up, half of our apartment is packed up and the other half of our things are making their way to the house.
But, this past weekend, was another holiday tradition that I wouldn’t pass up this year. Since I’ve moved to CLE, I’ve always made it a point to go home the first weekend in December to help my parents get their Christmas tree… and since I’ve been with B, the last four years we’ve kept that up.
It’s as simple as this:
When? First Weekend in December.
Where? Baughman’s Christmas Tree Farm. Every. Year.
What? Brave the Elements in Search for the Perfect Christmas Tree.
Who? My Mom Always has the Final Say.
Then… we take pictures in front of the tree… and then we cut the tree down. In 2011, it was actually B’s first time harvesting a real Christmas tree! This year we had a little more fun with our pictures (well, except my parents, they sort of just stood there.)
Once we’ve found the tree, we grab some hot chocolate, (with a mini candy cane thrown in) and then get home to decorate the tree! It’s always a fun weekend with the family, and having those traditions that build up the anticipation for the upcoming Christmas Holiday.
Do you go to the same place every year to get your Christmas tree?
