Get a head start on the holiday spirit by looking now for a Christmas tree farm near you. Then, when Thanksgiving weekend arrives, instead of sleeping off that holiday dinner or tackling Black Friday crowds, you’ll be making your own wreaths with your family or friends, sipping hot chocolate or wandering through rows of evergreens.
