Event 1: Cut Down Christmas Tree


We have horrible allergies, so I hate to admit we have to have an artificial tree. If we could have a real one, I would love to go to the farm and cut down my own tree. Like pumpkin patches and apple orchards, you can find a great local farm here.

I have heard there are a few rules for cutting your own tree. First, they always look smaller at the farm than they look in your house. You can see other suggestions here. That article also includes the tools you need to cut your tree down. I wouldn’t have thought to bring a blanket to wrap the tree in.
