🎄🎄🎄Looking for where to buy your real Christmas Tree in York this year? 🎄🎄🎄
It’s almost time! The ritual of buying our Christmas tree has become a real tradition in our house since we had kids and I’m so excited about making the trip this year. Of course you can just nip down to the local supermarket and hope for the best but for me this can be a much more magical experience. We’re lucky in York to have lots of family owned places that offer great service and a little more care when it comes to choosing the right tree for you.
I’ve listed 9 places below which are in or close to York where you can buy you real Christmas Trees from.. some have little shops and cafes so you can make it into a trip out and another lovely Christmas memory for you and your mini mumblers.
