When it comes to Christmas trees; what type of family are you? Does your family believe that it’s never too early to put a tree up? Or do you prefer to wait until two weeks before or one week before the big day? For those of us that prefer a fresh, local tree; most of us wait until one to two weeks before Christmas to put the tree up. At BC Farm Fresh; we’re a two week before Christmas family.
Our traditions around Christmas trees began thousands of years ago. People used to bring evergreen branches into their homes at Winter solstice to remind them that the dark days would end soon and spring would come again. Even Romans used evergreen branches to decorate their temples.
