I usually buy my tree on Dec 17th every year and each year I have paid about $5-10 for a 7-8ft tree. It's a competition I have with a friend as both of us have children with birthdays around this time of year and we try to separate Christmas from birthdays so we try to see who can get the cheapest tree. This year however, the trees are still at full price!!! What's with that? Do you think everyone is waiting? For goodness sake this is America, people put their Christmas trees up in November. Has anyone seen trees which are on sale around Charlotte? I just hate to lose again - she got hers free last year

Back in the day when I was in the market for Christmas trees, I often got them for free on Christmas Eve, which is a tradition in my family anyway.

I have to ask and I know you mentioned the competition...
But honestly I would not go through the trouble to put up a live tree for just a few days of the holiday.
You must have a lot more spare time than I do.....

We were completely decorated before Thanksgiving with our fake tree and built-in lights (genius!).
That is a few days early for us, but my wife wanted it all done since her in (er..out) laws were coming to our home.

I know one place nar my house which has packed up and cleaned out already. There is a place on Pineville Matthews I like to go to that still looks pretty full. It's where the Fresh Market is - about a mile from the 485 exit.

We are from Europe so I am being early putting it up around Dec 18th - normally it's Christmas Eve... but we don't take it down until little Christmas on January 6th - it's bad luck I am only trying to fit in with the locals in trying to put it up early! Spare time - have no idea what that is.
