Cut Down Your Own Christmas Tree This Year
Gather up the family (and a saw) and start a new tradition this year by cutting down your own Christmas Tree. If not that adventurous, you can at least pick out a tree and have it cut right in front of you. Christmas is less than three weeks away, the perfect time to prepare that holiday focal point. For a list of you-cut tree farms, visit the Milton Patch website.
