Ever since I was little, I’d choose the Christmas tree with my dad. We didn’t go anywhere fancy or anything like that; the local Home Depot always sufficed. However, the tradition wasn’t able to hold this year since he was out of town, so J and I went and picked it out. We have high ceilings, and tend to always get a 6′-7′ Douglas Fir. We actually ended up choosing the second tree we looked at! We were a bit late to the game to be honest, so we got very lucky with our tree. We went home, blasted the Christmas music, and decorated the sucker. We weren’t feeling too much in the Christmas mood, so getting the tree definitely helped change that. After decorating, we got tamales. So, essentially, Christmas decor + tamales = successful night!
