I got mine today at the Serene Green farm stand, 3980 Noyac Road, Sag Harbor. They just started selling trees this year, and are of very fine quality. $45. to $65. price range.

From the Diamond Brothers on Gingerbread Lane...a holiday tradition for us. The trees are reasonably priced, the guys are friendly & helpful. And, their trees "last". I am late this year but, most times I have mine up the day after Thanksgiving thru after New Year's. I keep it watered & there is minimal needles.

We are spending Christmas in New York City as we usually do. We have a nice Norfolk pine that is without ornaments 11 months a year and then around St. Nicholas Eve (December 5, Wednesday) gets decorated. On January 6 we take down the ornaments and put them away till the next year. Confession: When we had two small children, we purchased a throwaway tree every year. In the country, the tree can be burned in the fireplace, but in New York City it costs local taxpayers a substantial sum to dispose of all the trees in January. Btw, Santa Claus was invented in New York, via Clement Clark Moore (though his authorship of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas is contested by descendents of another New Yorker) and the caricaturist Thomas Nast, who brought Moore's St. Nick to life. Happy St. Nick's Day.

Great trees at Vermont Christmas Tree Stand on Toilsome/Gingerbread by the old Diamonds warehouse and Par East Mortgage. Stroll through the trees while listening to Christmas music!

thank goodness they're still calling them "Christmas trees" not holiday trees... after all, the atheist mafia is out to take down Christmas worse, since their King Obama has trashed Christianity + American values... A happy Christmas this year? Don't think so, not till BO is long gone!

"Santa was invented in N.Y." - I disagree TOTALLY with this non-sense. Santa is based on St. Nicholas, a European Saint dating back to the 15th century. http://www.stnicholascenter.org/pages/origin-of-santa/

Don't forget the Kiwanas in Amagansett - I have bought trees there for several years and they are always beautiful and for a good cause. Got ours on Saturday and it is almost as round as it is tall - probably the prettiest tree we've ever had.
