First I have to say that growing up I lived in the country and every year we would go to a Christmas tree farm to cut down our own tree. Well, my husband has always been a city guy and so when I mentioned to him that we had to go cut down our tree he thought I was crazy! He seriously had never heard of that! I found a great place called Bottoms Christmas Tree Farm, it's just off 400 N in North Ga. If you have never cut down your own tree it's really so so much fun! I remember as a kid, just running and running around looking for the best, biggest tree and eventually we all would agree on one and my dad would cut it down. The experience itself is so much fun, and I'd say it will definitely be a family tradition!
If you live in Atlanta, definitely check out the Bottoms Christmas Tree Farm, they're great. You get the cozy farm atmosphere, you can roast marshmallows over the bon-fire, enjoy a cup of hot apple cider, visit with our farm animals, and they even have horse drawn hay rides on Saturday's!!!
Aww we had so much fun! I've never gotten a tree at home depot....and I'm glad! lol
