Holiday Traditions: London and Maddie Choose and Decorate Our Christmas Tree from Alstede Farms in Chester, New Jersey

While Erik and his band of merry Santas, Mrs. Clauses and Elves were on the Santa Rampage in Austin, Texas yesterday, our family continued a quieter holiday tradition here in the Roxiticus Valley, New Jersey.

London, Maddie, Rex and I headed over to Alstede Farms in Chester, New Jersey to pick out a fresh cut eight to nine foot Christmas tree.  We chose a Concolor Fir, a soft green tree with medium needles and good retention.  Alstede Farms describes the frangrance as that of citrus, and after a day in our home, it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas… a great aroma of pine needles and citrus.  All we’re missing are the Christmas cookies, and the girls and I may get to baking tonight.

It always feels like our family is among the last to decorate our Christmas tree, but if you don’t have one yet, Roxy highly recommends the Alstede Farms Christmas tree experience.

Alstede Farms, 84 County Route 513 South (Old Route 24), Chester, NJ.  Phone:  (908) 879-7189.
