Oh it’s that time of year again! It’s almost time for Christmas trees!
I admit, I used to be an artificial tree kinda gal. My family had artificial trees for many, many years, and I got my own small, plastic tribute to the season when I moved out on my own.
And then I met Neil, who was having none of that.
So it’s been real trees ever since. They really do smell better.
Problem is, I have no idea where to get one this year. Our neighbourhood lot of years past is now a construction site. So I turned to Google for some help.
Did you know that Christmas tree sellers have not yet harnessed the power of the internets?
I know. Crazy!
But I also learned that there is a BC Christmas Tree Council. They need a council, but can’t manage to work on some SEO.
Anyhow, I digress.
The BC Christmas Tree Council at least has a website, and they have a bunch of listings for places in and around the province where one can purchase a fresh tree.
(Another aside – many of those tree farms do have websites, but my google-fu was not strong enough to find them.)
So in a couple weeks, we’ll head out and hack down one of nature’s specimens for our very own decorating pleasure. Hurrah!
Are you putting up a tree this year? Have you already? Live or Artificial?
And most importantly, settle an argument for Neil and I – white or multicoloured lights in the tree?
