It’s so festive to drive around and see all the little Christmas tree lots that pop up everywhere. Some lots are so small and cute, with just one lighted sign, while others are quite large with decorations, full display, blinking signs, inflated snowmen and the like!
It reminds me of when I was a child and our family used to drive out to pick out a Christmas tree. Sometimes we got them from a lot, sometimes we went out to the woods to cut them down. I have carried on this tradition with my child and sometimes we got out to the woods to cut down a living tree and bring it back to our house. The smell is wonderful, the symbolism is amazing, and the life of the tree reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas.
