Shopping for That Special Christmas Tree

I appreciate the guest post, Graig Brooks

When Christmas time rolls around, it's so much fun to go out and pick out that special Christmas tree! My husband and I go to our nearest shopping center, only five minutes away, and look at all the beautiful trees that are on display. Sometimes it's nice just to walk up and down the aisles with the other people getting ready to celebrate the best time of the year. It's so nice to see so many familiar faces while we shop. We live in a small home, so we don't want a tree that's too large. We always look for a tree that's about five foot tall, has a nice full shape, and needles that aren't falling off already.

Pine trees make the best Christmas trees. We go out to shop for the tree about a week before Christmas and we keep it up until the new year. Our trees last for us because we are very choosy and know what a good tree looks and feels like. We want a tree that stands straight, and has branches that will hold our ornaments in a wonderful way.

It's a fun thing to do, but we always remember to set our alarm (site) before we go out. We don't want to come back and find anything missing while we shop for our dazzling symbol of Christmas.
