O Christmas Tree

Eleven days until Christmas! Have you put up your Christmas tree yet? This year, we decided to go straight to the local farm (figured it was a little more eco-friendly since the trees are grown right here on Long Island)!

Our tree came from Shamrock Christmas Tree Farm, in Mattituck, but there are several farms as you head out east. We think our Christmas tree is the best ever, but we might be a little biased.

At Shamrock, kids can ride the train around the farm, visit Santa (on the weekends) and have hot chocolate and popcorn.  

The trip can be fun for parents too.  There are lots of little towns and hamlets you can visit while you're on the North Fork.  If you start your day early enough you might even think about stopping at some of the wineries before you get to the farm.  Oh, and don't forget to go over to Briermere for a pie on the way home (what's better than starting your day with wine and ending it with pie?).

Good idea! That's what we do.

How are you?
