Ladies and Gentlemen, Get Out Your Handsaws!
It’s time. We’ve had our first big snow (okay, that was a little ridiculous) and December is just around the corner. It’s time to head out and cut your own Christmas tree.
Do you know that cut-your-own Christmas trees are considerably cheaper than precuts?? I was checking out prices as I made this post and I’m ready to make the switch. Not only will I be saving money, but half of these places have draft horses and other entertainment for kids. I think my family needs to step up their “buy it from a parking lot” game and take a road trip!
We can’t promise you a Kristoff or Sven sighting when you go, but perhaps your spouse will don his or her best plaid shirt for the occasion.
