Can you remember as a kid going out with your family to buy a Christmas tree?  The smell of the fresh pine, coming home to decorate the tree as a family, and the hot cocoa or apple cider that your parents made for you?    Those are the memories that we carry and bring to our own families. The memories of having family time together and singing Christmas carols is what Christmas is really about.  The moments that are not captured on a cell phone video but instead captured in our hearts to treasure forever.  Technology can come and go and pictures can be deleted, but the feeling that you get when your child or significant other see the tree decorated for the first time is priceless. Happy tree shopping!!!
