My favourite part of Christmas is choosing our tree. We have been going to a small farm, close to my parents home for the past 10 years. Each time Dan and I reminisce on past years. Of us as a new couple chopping down our first tree when we moved in together, to coming when I was pregnant, the following year coming with Charlie nearly one and then the year after with baby Rufus - and the many years after as a family til we reach here and now.
I LOVE this holiday ritual... it is and always will be my favourite Christmas thing to do.
Sadly this will be the last year of this family tradition... the farm owner is stopping selling trees after this year. He is an old guy and it's getting too much for him.
We shall have to find somewhere new.
