Christmas Trees and The South
I went to a friend's house last week for my weekly small group Bible study and couldn't help but admire her Christmas tree. It was at least 7 feet tall, so green, and perfect with its tree limb fluffiness. It was so pretty I thought at first it was a fake tree. Then I smelled that lovely odor a fresh tree has. Absolutely beautiful.
Somehow tree shopping and prices came up. Okay folks from the south...do you know how much her beautiful, tall, perfect tree was?
$40. That's right. 4-0 Bucks. That's it.
And not only that, but there are some places where you can get big, beautiful trees like that for CHEAPER--like $25 or $30 bucks.
I had NO idea. Down in TX a tree like that would easily cost $150!
I'm not saying it is worth moving up here for but if you love Real Christmas Trees, this is the place to be!
