The Insiders: Don’t waste any time and claim your tree today

While it’s tough to think about Christmas with all that Thanksgiving turkey and pie sitting in our bellies this morning, there isn’t a whole lot of time to waste.

There are decorations to hang, presents to buy and don’t forget about picking out that perfect Christmas fir that will take up a large chunk of your living room for the next month or so. We know it’s hard to decide what to do first, but don’t freak out because we are here to help.

Since your tree is the main attraction outside of all the presents that go underneath it, we suggest heading on down to Rossview Farm today (84 District #5 Road) to claim that perfect one between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. You can either tag a tree to cut later or chop it down today. You can be just like Clark Griswold, only with less sap and more sanity.

When I lived in VT. we used to plan a weekend rabbit hunt at our friend's camp in the Northeast Kingdom for the 1st weekend in December - mostly so we could "harvest" our Xmas tree. With a spruce bog behind camp, all you had to do was pick out a nice one and a load of 20 ga 6's aimed at the base would topple her over!
