Advent, Day 3 :: Get a Christmas tree

I never had a live Christmas tree until we moved to Michigan. I love the tradition of going to pick out our tree each year. For those of you who get real trees, what kind do you like to get? We usually get a Fraser, and that’s what we ended up with again this year, though I was mighty tempted by an absolutely gorgeous Noble pine on the lot. But it cost almost 50% more than the Fraser for the same size, and I just couldn’t justify it. Then I was rereading an old blog post last night, and discovered that 2 years ago, we did get a Noble, and I regretted it a little, because, while beautiful, it was actually a bit dense for decorating well. So score one for blabbing all my details on my blog, because I wouldn’t have remembered that otherwise.

After we picked out our tree, we went back across the street to get another piece of Chocolate Mountain Cake.

  1. I’m late but my family always got Fraser firs; this year we got a balsam fir because the guy said it is more fragrant. (i can’t really tell the difference though, to be honest. The branches etc seem “normal” to me.)
