Every year people grumble that Christmas comes earlier and earlier. Christmas music before thanksgiving? Christmas shopping before the weather changes? Christmas trees before December? Well for all you grinches out there, we have some news that will make you squeal with glee.
The tree Grace bought criminally early this year may not have been a local one. According to data from the National Christmas Tree Association, the total number of trees harvested in New York State has been…. Chopped… in half since 2002. Sorry. Local tree growers are fighting not only against artificial trees, but also out of state farms.
