O Christmas Tree

December 11, 2012 at 3:26 pm Leave a comment

One of our family traditions is to hunt for the perfect tree. During our hunt, we seem to check out every tree in the field. Even those that are too tall or too small still get a once over from us. This year, we even found our 2015 Christmas tree (as long as no one chops it down before it reaches its perfect height). During the hunt, we begin mostly with glances. Then we get serious and begin to study the tree. Is the shape uniform? Is the trunk straight? Is it the right variety (we like fir trees)? Will it fit our space? Is it the most beautiful one we can find? After traipsing through the field, it seems we always come back to one of the first trees we spotted. It seems as if there is something magical in those first trees. An attraction that can’t be beat.

Even if you’re not the Christmas tree type or you’ve always had an artificial tree, you’ve probably experienced something like this in your life. For you married gals, it could have been the hunt to find the perfect wedding dress. You may have purchased one of the first ones that you tried on, but you still had to try on a few (hundred) more just to be sure. For you guys, maybe it’s the hunt to find the perfect ring for your gal (No? Well insert your own masculine anecdote here). I know for me, it was the first wedding dress that I tried on that won my heart. I’m telling you, there’s something magical in those firsts.

For those of you that still need to get a Christmas tree, consider venturing down Orange Road to Southern Plantation. It’s a great family tree farm. You are greeted right away, with candy canes for all. There is complimentary cocoa and cider when you’ve completed your hunt. The prices are reasonable ($25 or $40). This is definitely a SHOP LOCAL experience! Put 63727 Orange Road into your GPS and head on over. Make this a new first for your family. Happy hunting!
