We still have a week to go before we feast on Turkey and all the fixin’s, but we can’t help but think about the Christmas season that will follow. One of our favorite parts of Christmas is cutting a tree and then decorating it with our collection of special ornaments. We’ve been collecting dated ornaments since our first Christmas together which means we now have 35 plus in the collection. Each one brings back memories which we share as we hang them on the tree.
If you want a great Christmas tree we recommend Glove Hollow Christmas Tree Farm in Plymouth, NH. They have a large selection of live trees ready for cutting and cut trees ready to take home. Tree cutting day is a family tradition which we’ve conducted for years. We spend lots of time as a group picking out just the right tree that will look great in our living room. At Glove Hollow you can drive your own car into the field area or take a horse drawn (sometimes tractor drawn) wagon. It’s great fun.
Now would be the time to plan a weekend getaway to the Inn On Golden Pond, our Holderness, NH bed and breakfast, which would include quality New Hampshire lodging, cutting your own tree, attending one of many holiday craft fairs or musical performances and doing some tax free shopping.
