|Mona and Ayaana working on the tree|
Some months ago (while we were still in Bangalore), I read about this company, The Living Christmas, that provides live christmas trees. I tracked them down and turns out that they are local. So we decided to get a live tree this year. The tree comes home in a pot with it's roots intact. At the end of the season, the tree is picked up and replanted instead of drying up and going waste. If we choose to, we can adopt the tree and we would get the same tree each year. I thought it was a brilliant concept.
