Our Experience at a Massachusetts Christmas Tree Farm

The holiday season is a wonderful time to live near a big city. In the city and around it are so many wonderful things to do as a family. Thanks to Upparent for sponsoring this post and providing inspiration for local family events for us to discover.

One of our favorite holiday traditions is to visit a cut your own Christmas Tree Farm. It's our 3rd year and counting, thanks to Upparent as a resource. AD

As far as Christmas trees go, we are pretty go big or go home.

I don’t even know how it started! For some background, the house we bought six years ago has gigantic cathedral ceilings in the living room, and since the entire house looks like a ski lodge, the house is practically begging for a 15-20 foot Christmas tree. And if it’s not the house begging, it’s us! Neither of us grew up with huge Christmas trees. Since I grew up with mixed faith holidays, we had no tree. When we lived in California, you could get incredible trees but we didn’t have a large space or a high ceiling. Cassidy would go to a lot in the city and come home with something beautiful. It was before we had years together, and children, so it wasn’t full of mismatched ornaments. Not yet. That was a gift still to come into our lives.

We discovered Upparent last year. It’s a startup website that helps to gather into one place the many conversations parents are having with one another to share family-friendly recommendations about things to do, places to go, products to try, etc. It’s also the online destination for parents seeking inspiration from other parents about local events and activities for family fun. I love that it’s fun and easy to use, and that content can be searched and saved to make it extremely personalized and relevant.

This will be our third year and counting visiting a Christmas Tree Farm in Massachusetts. Sometimes you can see signs on the road that tell you a Christmas Tree Farm is up ahead or down a road, but ultimately it helps to have Upparent as a resource to find the most recommended farm in your area. The more family-friendly, the better.

Sometimes we have to get there early to avoid a crowd, or bring special boots to go into the woods, and we need to know that info beforehand.

There’s something so magical about visiting! We love picking out our tree, which actually takes way more time than I expect. Sometimes it takes hours

Then we also pick out wreaths for the front door and sometimes for bedroom doors as well. There’s always hot cocoa with marshmallows, music playing, and fun decorations to sit on, play with, or just walk around and see.

All I know is that we can’t wipe the smiles off our faces when we go to the Christmas Tree Farm!

It’s something to look forward to all year long!
