Visiting the Christmas Tree Farm
I am so glad that we were able to visit our local Christmas Tree Farm this year. As we approached the month of November we had almost given up hope that we could keep up this little family tradition. It’s one that brings so much joy, we look forward to it each year and after more than 10 years of visiting it’s definitely one of our favourites.
We have a few traditions that we have stuck to over the years. Have you? I know that this year a lot of those traditions might not all go ahead BUT we have this one. And it was wonderful. Despite Covid. We have pledged that we’re going to make the most of every little thing this year. Create new traditions. As hard as I know this year is going to be for so many now is the time to find joy in the little things. That’s my plan for surviving the festive period minus gatherings with friends, the pantomime and all the festive days out.
And so, to spread some festive cheer I thought I would share one of them with you. There are some traditions which I desperately look forward to as soon as the festive season starts to appear. Making memories. And I for one find this time of year to be just wonderful, I’m certainly not letting Covid get in the way of the festivities.
Our favourite Christmas Tradition
Each year our celebrations start with a trip to our local Christmas Tree Farm to pick out and tag our pine needled friends. As we always do, we pop on our boots and head into the farm in search of the one, or should I say three. Sadly the hot chocolate van wasn’t open this year but they were selling Christmas cookies. We may have had one of each.
This year more than ever I am so glad that we were able to wander through the farm together. Measure our trees and ponder over whether the ones we chose were too tall, full enough, and the perfect Christmas tree shape. They very nearly were unable to open. It’s a Christmas miracle.
If you’ve never experienced the joy and smell of a real tree I think this is the year you make a new tradition. You won’t regret it. Just don’t forget to water it and don’t pop it near a radiator.
And that’s our favourite Christmas Tradition
More so than ever we are going to enjoy being in our little family bubble this year. As well as be thankful that we are safe, our family too and have each other. We’re together. What Christmas traditions will you be holding onto this year or will you be making new ones? If you’d like to follow our Christmas adventures then do over to my Insta.
