I keep my eye open this time of year for a less than perfect tree that is in the wrong location, such as a future road site, future wildlife food plot, someplace where it will not be allowed to grow for much longer.

Then sometime toward December 24th I give it a new and higher purpose for it's retirement, like decorating my living room.

Interesting question because it really is a "Christmas Tree." Other faiths don't celebrate with presents under a tree, so there is no need to be politely correct! But to answer your question, I can't - not my holiday -

I don't have a tree at home but it's nice to see them when I'm out and about. I like that Sharon Tara and her family go out and identify the tree in October or so and then cut it when it's closer to the holiday.  That would be a fun experience.   Once.

I don't put up a tree anymore, but I believe for the right "mood" in selecting a tree, I would go to Christmas Tree lane at the waterfront here in Louisville.

When I drive by it looks quite lovely, with large trees, the lights overhead making it festive, and its at the waterfront which makes it quite beautiful as well.

We have a great nursery that suspends the trees, so you can turn them or walk around and see all sides. When the children were younger, we used to go to places that let you cut them yourself. Some were fully set up with ropes,  helpers, etc., hot cider and all, but others were pretty much snowy woods, where you were on your own.
