Christmas tree

A Christmas tree is part of holiday season for many families. The aroma, beauty and special adventure of having a tree is sensed by all in the home.

Given COVID-19 issues, it may be hard this year not to feel a little like Scrooge or the Grinch that stole Christmas. But before you say, “Bah, humbug,” and try to fast forward into the new year, look for ways to create some fond and fun memories this holiday season.

More Americans are staying home for the holidays amid pandemic restrictions and are realizing that for the first time in years — or maybe for the first time ever — they will be home to set up and care for a live tree.
