When it comes to Christmas traditions, picking out a tree ranks at the top of the list. Even Kevin McCallister knew this, chopping down his very own makeshift tree in Home Alone.
While we don’t recommend axing a tree from your neighbor’s yard, we do recommend heading to one of these local tree farms to pick a tree. Whether you decide on a picturesque, precut Fraser Fir, humble Charlie Brown special or cut your own 8-foot pine, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect centerpiece for Santa to pile presents under.
