There’s a reason why Christmas is one of the most popular holidays here in the United States. In fact, it’s such a beloved holiday that some fans can’t help but put their Christmas tree up the day following Halloween, starting as early as November 1 with their Christmas decorating. Talk about commitment!
Of course, some of us put it up the day after Thanksgiving, and for those procrastinators, sometimes that tree doesn’t go up until the last minute. No matter what your timeline preference for putting up everyone’s favorite holiday centerpiece, the project wouldn’t be possible without the tree itself, and just as thought goes into picking that perfect tree as it does in putting it all together, so here to help get the holiday spirit started and make the process of selecting a Christmas tree easier are these fantastic Christmas tree farms here in and around Spokane.
