TODAY IS CHRISTMAS TREE DAY
The Christmas tree, a prominent decoration for those who celebrate Christmas, is the focus of today’s holiday. The day is often celebrated by acquiring, putting up, and decorating a Christmas tree. Although the choice to put National Christmas Tree Day on December 8 was made by the day’s creator, Jace Shoemaker-Galloway, the date does have some other connections to the Christmas tree.
How to celebrate Christmas Tree Day
There is no better way to spend the day than to get a Christmas tree, put it up in your home, and decorate it. You could cut down your own or buy a real one in a parking lot, at a store, or anywhere else where they are sold in your community. If a real tree doesn’t suit you, pick up an artificial one. Decorate your tree with lights, ornaments, garland, tinsel, or whatever else you would like.
