Following up on my post about Family Traditions, one of our holiday traditions is the Annual Christmas Tree Farm trip.
Every year since 2011, (except one) we have gone to a local tree farm and cut down our Christmas tree. The one year we missed was because we couldn’t afford the tree due to an unexpected surgery for one of our boys. That year, an amazing family from our church gifted us a freshly cut tree!
We let the kids pick the tree each year. This year they voted 4-to-1 on the tree we would take home.
We also cut a small slice from the trunk of the tree to create a wood slice ornament for each year. Keep an eye on the blog for a tutorial!
Most tree farms provide a handsaw and carts and they will wrap your tree for you to easily transport home. Some farms even have a truck to bring you to the field and back to the checkout area.
After you’ve put your tree on the car, warm up by grabbing a cup of hot cider or freshly popped popcorn in the tree farm shop. And don’t forget to grab a couple of photos along the way!
