Cut Your Own Christmas Tree at One of These Beautiful Christmas Tree Farms
Ladies and Gentlemen, Get Out Your Handsaws!
My favorite time of year is here!
I don’t know about you, but the magic of Christmas always gives me the warm fuzzies. It’s the cold crisp air, the white sparkly snow, the incredible spirit of giving, and the exciting tradition of picking the perfect tree and dressing it in hundreds of twinkly lights.
My husband and I both grew up having real trees in our house. His family would go out to the tree farm and cut down a tree, and my family would just wander into the backyard (okay it was 12 acres of woods) and find the perfect tree!
Once we had our own children, we couldn’t wait to start a family tradition of cutting our Christmas Tree! Since we live in the city we opted to go to a tree farm and cut one down. These days West Michigan tree farms have so many activities and hot cocoa, which makes braving the cold an enjoyable experience for all.
Whether you have a family or living the single life, cutting down your own real tree is the festive kind of fun we think you’re here for. (We’re so sorry, allergy sufferers – you should still come for the cocoa!)
