Are you a real tree or a fake tree kind of family? Well if you’re anything like me you love the smell of pine from a real tree in your home during the holidays. I absolutely love everything about the holidays. Especially picking out our own tree. It’s a tradition in my family that we get our tree the Saturday after Thanksgiving and then go to town decorating our home. My kids actually look forward to getting off their electronics and doing this- which is a win for me as a mom these days!
I compiled some of the best spots near and around Morris County New Jersey to go hunt for that special tree. There’s something so special about roaming through the fields until you find the one and then cutting it down yourself! It’s truly the beginning of the holiday season and puts everyone in a good mood. Not to mention, I’m Jewish and my husband is not, so it wasn’t until we started dating that Christmas tree hunting truly entered my life. Now, I’m obsessed! My house is a Christmakah dream come true! And lets face it, it’s when I can officially start shopping that makes me happy too!! Don’t worry I’ll post pics when the decorating gets underway! Happy Hunting!
