Christmas Tree Shopping with the Family

Contribution by Archie Watts

Christmas Tree Shopping is one of my favorite activities that I get to do with my husband and family in the Christmas Season. We get a live tree, and since we live in Florida we have to wait until they're brought down from Michigan or Canada. Typically, two or three weekends before Christmas we go down to the beach and pick out our tree. This may sound strange, but they deliver the trees at the far end of south beach. Right before my husband and I set out to get the tree, we set the home security alarm from as always. The kids are grown, so we go out the weekend that the trees arrive, so that they are fresh and there is a good selection to choose from.

We live in Florida because we don't like the cold and the snow, but we love the holidays! As soon as we get the tree in the house and it into some sugar water, we begin to decorate. Years ago we decided that we would rather have a live tree than an artificial one, for a couple of reasons. The first reason is because a live tree has an evergreen smell that fills up the whole house, and secondly, that just makes it feel more like Christmas.

Happy Christmas Tree hunting and may you find the perfect tree this year!
