Hey, we need to get our tree soon...I haven't really picked a place and the one I've seen (a spot on 85/87 in Security) didn't look like it had very big or appealing trees...

I don't want to cut my own, but I want a nice tree. Cost isn't an issue. Anyone have any recommendations, that are not way up north or west? Anyone got a favorite place they always go get a tree? Anyone got any tree stories they just feel like sharing?

Happiest of holidays to all of you, however you celebrate I hope it is super-merry!!

And I wish you all the willpower to avoid going totally postal in Walmart! I've been fighting that lately, myself...

We just got ours at a lot on Nevada near Garden of the Gods Road. They advertise the trees are from South Carolina. Talking to the folks, its a family run tree farm, and yes, it's in South Carolina and they trucked the trees in to COS to test the market. Very nice trees; prices may be a bit higher than other lots, but not that much more. Nice folks; give 'em a try.

Anyone else decide to just decorate the tree in the front yard? We can reuse it each year

Thanks! Might just check that out!

I also noticed a place near Gunther Toody's over on Powers/Palmer Park Rd as I drove by this morning. I haven't got a real close look, but from where I was at the stoplight, it looked promising...

Oh, and we do also decorate our tree out front, and our house, and our fences, and our bushes...but all white lights, none of that wacky inflatable stuff. I so want to be done with it all...the decorating, shopping, wrapping...so I can just put on my mellow Christmas piano music and sit in my comfy chair and enjoy the ambiance.

I put a hundred lights on a pine tree out front....can't reach the top of it these days, so I just throw the last six feet up and over the top. Tacky looking thing, I call it the Charley Brown Christmas Tree.

Wife does a plastic tree indoors.

In 2006 when the tree was much smaller and I could reach the top,

it looked like this
on the 12/20/06 blizzard that shut DIA for 3 days.
