This year has been different, to say the least, but the holiday traditions don’t need to be. For many of us, a favorite holiday activity is going to the farm and cutting down our own tree. Nothing beats the smell of fresh spruce and pine among the holiday décor! Pop in your favorite holiday playlist, grab a cup of hot cocoa, and you are set for the season!
