❄ Hello readers! ❄
Welcome to day 12 of Blogmas14! My favorite winter activity by far is going to a Festival of Trees every year! I’ve been going to the one in Methuen, Massachusetts since 2007 and it has been such a great tradition. This year I couldn’t make it out to Mass so I went to one in Saratoga, New York which is much closer to my house. The gist of a tree festival is that a bunch of organizations, businesses, clubs and families all decorate a Christmas tree and put it up for display in a big town hall.
The Festival in Mass was a fundraiser for the town’s historical society so you buy raffle tickets and put a ticket in a jar for whatever trees you like. If you get picked you could win the tree!! And these trees are seriously stocked. Each has a theme full of fun ornaments/toys/whatever.
The one in Saratoga was actually really disappointing in comparison. The money I paid wasn’t for charity, that I was aware of. And the trees were for sale! It was nonsense I tell you, nonsense! They did have some beautiful trees though so sorry in advance for the picture overload.
