Christmas Trees coming soon!!

11/10/2009:

Ho Ho H-already?

You know it can’t be November without the onset of the 2009 Holiday Season, right?

One of the first signs of things to come is over at the Church of Holy Innocents at 528 Willow Ave., where the Tree Barn will once again set up the biggest selection of Christmas Trees and many other holiday decorations in Hoboken.

They’re set to open on November 20th at 10am. Be sure to swing by and check it out! (That is, if you’re even thinking about being in the “holiday spirit”)

My children and I have been buying from the guys at the Tree Barn for at LEAST 10 years. Even when the kids were too young to “help”, the men at 6th & Willow let them help by holding on to the middle while doing the real lifting themselves. Who cares if they cost a bit more!?! These are our neighbors – they wave all year round, help carry in the groceries in the Summer and the Tree in the winter. They remember each year if it is our year to be here or our year to be at my… Read more »

Heck yeah interested!!!! These yearly people are great aren’t they? They know your name, they know the kids, they know your roof height etc. It is no fun going about and around for a tree. Same people all the time is essential, they’re like part of that family christmas tradition. And thanks for commenting about giving to local businesses this holiday season, i appreciate that.

And– AND– there’s always the fun of your tree coming out crooked because no matter how hard you try, it just doesn’t stand up as straight as you’d like it to. At least that’s what has happened to us. For two reasons: the first being that we suck at making a tree stand up straight, so we wind up leaning it against the wall a little (don’t tell)… and the second being that our building is so DAMN old that some of the floors are crooked. We laid a marble on the floor to prove that the floor was crooked,… Read more »

After reading this post and the dope post, i just was reminded of the meaning of Christmas. Name calling over where we buy our Christmas trees. Tis the season for peace on earth and good will towards men… or whatever, i guess. Yikes!

Oh, no. Not me. I’ve carried our tree home with nothing more than the help of an extra pair of hands. Love the challenge… and the smell of the tree. It’s fun.

Then again, our tree of choice has never been larger than about 5-feet. Our ceilings are low.

We did that one year. I had someone in from out of town so I signed them up to carry it back with me. It was definitely far more festive!
