What type of Christmas tree do you have?

I'd love to hear if you are going fake or real this year!  Send me a note or a photo of your tree over on my Facebook Page - Jessica On The Radio.

We were "real Christmas tree" people for years but found a fake one on clearance a few years ago.  Here's what our tree looks like at our house!  (Complete with the bucket of dogs toys on the right and a very sad-looking Saint Bernard.  I promise he is very happy.  That's just his natural expression.)

A few things you might want to remember to bring with you when you get a real tree are:

  • work gloves...because you will get tree sap on you
  • saw...some locations do have these available but using your own tools might be the safest option in 2020
  • hats & gloves...don't forget to bundle up!
  • great walking shoes or boots...you could be walking through a field for a little bit so plan ahead and wear shoes for any terrain
  • camera or your phone...some of the best family shots are taken this time of year, and a tree farm is a perfect backdrop
  • twine...most of the locations have twine available but just in case, bring some along or some bungee cords
