Have you ever gone to a Christmas tree farm to cut down your own tree? It's quite the adventure (and gives my husband an opportunity to use his tools!). For me, there's nothing better than the scent, feel and look of a real tree. For the past couple of years, we've been going to Clembrook Christmas Farm in Milton, Ontario. The family-owned farm grows a selection of pines, spruces and firs, my favourite being the Canaan fir (very similar to the balsam and Fraser). It also has pre-cut varieties if you're not particularly handy with a saw. The one! A beautiful 5-foot Canaan fir.
