Deck the Halls in the Northwest!

A message from Snowflake the Elf:

How do all of you get your Christmas Trees around the Pacific Northwest? I know there are a variety of ways and traditions. In the North Pole, elves march out into the snow, in hunt for the best lookin’ tree! First-things-first, I always check to make sure there are no critters inhabiting my future Christmas tree, and then I assess the branches making sure they are full and vibrant, and the last thing I do is check the trunk to be sure there is no rotting.

Northwest Christmas

I know that the Northwest has many mountains and I have heard that the Mountain Loop highway is a big Christmas tree hunting area. Just stop at the Verlot Ranger Station to purchase your tree permit of $10, then they’ll tell you where to go! Many people make a tradition of going down to the tree lots – a tasty opportunity to get some hot chocolate. Don’t forget to bring your camera for lasting memories!

As for decorating the tree, I love putting cards I receive onto the branches, tying bows on the branches, and collecting vintage ornaments found at thrift stores and antique stores! Share with your friends about how you decorate and get your tree, maybe you can get some ideas to add into your traditions!
