Advent Calendar Christmas Tree by Ned (gr.6)

It’s finally the 19th of December !!! Me and my family are going to get a natural tree for Christmas. The 19th of December is like a holiday to me and my mom because it’s like I could do whatever I want on the 19th.

When I go to Botanix for my tree on the way there from a distance I can see the biggest trees sticking up. When we enter the parking lot we see the big gates tto the entrance. When I step in I can see over 100 trees or more. I could smell the freshness of the trees. I could feel all small pines under my feet as I am walking. That’s why I call this day a holiday.

After about 10 to 15 minutes of having fun we start to look at the trees to figure out the special tree we will have for Christmas. It takes me and my mom forever to get over Christmas trees because there are about 300 or more trees to choose from. The way my tree is, is big, round, tall and fluffy with lots of pine needles and no holes in it it. I also look at if it smells because some smell more than others. I prefer the non smelling ones because they lose their pines less quickly than the smelly ones. I also ask myself if the branches are strong enough to support the weight of the ornaments. This is so important because if one branch breaks there is white, thick, sticky sap that comes out and it falls on the ornaments and makes them sticky.

After we bought the tree we try to squeeze it through the front door and into the living room. We drill 2 holes on the  bottom of the tree so it doesn’t dry out and we have like a stand for the tree so it can stand up.

Every year we have to move our T.V. The tree goes beside the fireplace because it’s my mom’s tradition from when she was young.
