We Tagged A Tree

On Saturday, we made our annual trip to the tree farm to tag a Christmas tree. We broke a long-standing tradition, though, by finding the right tree for all four of us almost instantly. Usually, tree-tagging involves a drawn-out series of suggested trees that, for one reason or another, are not approved by the whole committee.

Not this year, this year, we had only a few candidates, all of which all of us liked. Until we found this one, tagged it, paid for it, and went off for a pleasant lunch.

How does the tree get to your home? Or is there a long extension cord for the lights and decorations and then you drag the family back to open presents. At least Santa wouldn't have to slide down a chimney.

I suspect I am not understanding the system. Delivery?

I probably should have added that in another week or so, I will return to the tree lot and collect the tree. We'll put it up and decorate after that.

Because we also celebrate Orthodox Christmas (1/7), we keep our tree around well into January. Therefore, we don't want to cut it and put it up too early in December.
