I’m Part Grinch…

I’m Part Grinch…

I guess I’m going to allow myself to be selfish on this one. I mean, our family has gone out for our Christmas trees for decades. And now, because of this stupid pandemic, people are not only big into getting real Christmas trees this year, but also going to actual Christmas tree farms to choose their trees. It I realize it makes sense, as cutting down your own tree is an outdoor activity and therefore considered safer than any indoor activity during the pandemic. Plus, with cabin fever setting in, many outdoor activities are experiencing a boom in popularity. Workers at tree farms are reporting seeing more and more first-time real Christmas tree buyers, and also say they’re seeing many keeping true to their traditions and bringing their family out to choose and cut down their usual tree. The National Christmas Tree Association says sales of real trees are up all over, and they expect 25 to 30 million natural trees to be sold in the U.S. this holiday season. Now, on the surface I think that’s great for these businesses but if you’ve ever been to one you know there’s not a ton of trees and it does take a while to grow a replacement. So all you newbies that need a live tree…I can steer you to the boy scouts or an other local group that has them set up at locations across town by a gas station. It’s kinda the same thing, isn’t it?
