It's just so much easier to buy a fake department store Xmas tree. Just whip it out of the box, attach the branches, and bingo, you've got yourself a sterilized, unoriginal tree just like millions of other Americans! All you have to do is buy a can of "Authentic Xmas Tree Smell" and voila, it's a winter wonderland come true, OR -   "Well son, back in the "old days," we used to hike 10 miles (it was really only about 100 yards) into the forest (it was really a Xmas tree farm) to chop down our own Xmas tree." Thanks to pickyourownchristmastree.org, you could bundle up the kids and show them what it's like to cut down their own Christmas tree, just like your great-great granddaddy did back in the 1800's. If you're really thinking about going outside to chop down an actual authentic tree, here are a few suggestions.
