O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!

Each bough doth hold its tiny light,
That makes each toy to sparkle bright.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!

For a few years now we have had a fibre optic tree that has come apart in two particular places making it incredibly easy to store as well as put together. With a separate branch selection to the main trunk it really was a quick but painless job to put the tree together. The additional bonus of a fibre optic tree is that you don’t really need any extra lights unless you want to really go for the blinding effect that some lights have.

This year, things have changed – not only has our beautiful fibre optic friend no longer with us we have had to enter the realm of lights, lights and more lights. After moving on from the swift farewell of our previous tree we decided in our infinite wisdom that we would purchase a real tree. We bundled up against the elements (we don’t live in Alaska so it was a coat and scarf!) and headed out to find our Christmas tree. I don’t know about you but it really is a very personal experience finding the tree that is just right for your household whether it is real or not. There are many factors that have to be taken into account – height, weight, girth etc (get your minds out of the gutter!).

After a short drive we arrived at Woodcote Green Garden Centre & Nurseries which is not only a mouthful to say but when you are trying to navigate whilst being jostled here there and everywhere by a weekend crowd isn’t fun in the slightest. You may or may not know that I am not the best in a crowd that has no purpose so I tried to steer the Madre and myself the best I could to find our darling tree before someone got hurt. Through the farm shop, past the children breaking ornaments, around the tempting smells of the cafe and past the reindeer and we were where we wanted and needed to be.

Finally we found our tree – decorations are the next step!

Have you got your Christmas tree yet?
