This time of year is always a joyful time for us. It reminds us of a tradition we had started in our family as we were raising our children.
On Thanksgiving Day, after enjoying great treats and a great meal, we would venture out into the woods. We were looking for the tree that would become our Christmas tree.
Often we might just notice the right shape, and other times it was a little harder to find that right one.
We would tie a ribbon on the selected tree and that would be the event of the day.
Two weeks later I would cut the tree and bring in to setup and decorate.
