Back to the Christmas Tree Farm

We cut our own tree from the Ergle Christmas Tree Farm again this year. It was another fun family experience. That's my husband cutting down the tree and my two sons watching.

Will this become a long-standing family tradition for us? The jury is still out. The tree is not a typical Christmas tree. It is grown in Florida, after all. It's very pretty in it's own way, but the needles are really sticky and tend to fall off easily. Not to mention, they are nearly impossible to vacuum up. It also has kind of an unusual smell.

Sometimes it's difficult to know where to find the balance between tradition, frugality, and eco-friendliness.

Read my post from last year, Our $25 Christmas Tree from Ergle Farm, to find out why we chose to buy a locally-grown Christmas tree, and weigh in with your opinion.

By the way, here's a $2 Coupon for Ergle Farm.

  1. Going to the tree farm and selecting your own tree has always sounded like fun...we have family with allergies and asthma so a real tree does not work for us here...love the smell of a real one though.
    Hope it will work to see you soon...hopefully Thursday.

  2. Hey Carolyn!! So nice to hear from you. Hope you had a great holiday season. I've been missing working on my blog. Hope to have time for it again soon. Take care!
