Have You Ever Cut Down Your Own Christmas Tree?

We have a Christmas tree farm nearby and every time I drive past I wonder how many people cut down their own tree for the holiday. I never did this and my daughter remarked one day that it probably would be fun. It's probably fun for other people with kids but I'm happy with my artificial tree that requires no work or watering. Of course in Christmas commercials and movies you see cars with trees tied to the roof and snow on the ground and it gives a ambiance to the holidays. We always had a real tree when I was growing up and it was fun going to the lot to pick out our tree but I never knew anyone who actually cut down their own tree. Have you?

Oh its so much fun! We used to cut down a fresh tree every year. There was a Christmas tree farm that we'd drive to. They would have campfires near the parking lot that you could get some hot cocoa at while you waited for the wagon ride back to the bush.
We bought a real tree every year when I was a kid, but we lived in a city and we never went to cut our own tree. Locally people buy real tree with roots and they put the tree in big vases. My neighbors have the same for at least 5 years, it's growing up.

We had live trees too when I was growing up. My dad would bring it home and stand it next to the house until it was time to bring it inside and decorate. We never bought ones with real roots but it sounds pretty nice to be able to have the same tree for years.

We've never cut down our own Christmas tree! I grew up with an artificial tree . . . and at our apartment we've only had the artificial ones. When we got this house, our first Christmas was with our first fresh tree - but from a lot. But since then we've pulled out the artificial ones again.
