The clock is ticking but you still have time to find the perfect Christmas tree!
69 News stopped by a tree farm to tackle the sometimes difficult decision of "which tree"?!
Families we talked to said it's never too late to head out to the tree farm.
People were smiling as they pulled carts with Christmas trees but before you can show off the fruits of your labor, you need a plan.
"I like Douglass Fir, someone else likes a Norway Spruce, or Blue Spruce, somebody may like a Frazier Fir," said John Wyckoff, tree grower at Wyckoff's Christmas Tree Farm. "It's just personal preference.”
They sell six varieties of trees at Wyckoff Christmas Tree Farm in Belvidere, Warren County, New Jersey.
That's a lot of trees for the Anderson family to choose from.
"It's constant struggle between how big and pretty it could be and still not scratch the ceiling," said Claire Anderson.
This is the first time all four members of the family were able to get together to go tree hunting for the year.
"We've been doing it since before the kids were born," added Claire's father. "Now they are in college and we have to wait for them to come home from college to do it.”
After walking through the snow and looking at certain characteristics a tree was found.
"I like the soft needles because it doesn't hurt your hands when you are putting the lights on,” said one family member.
Many say the more people you have hunting for the tree, the harder it is to make that final decision.
But they say once you find it, it's all worthwhile.
"I love it," said Claire Anderson. "It's so much fun coming out and just finding the perfect tree.”
"Although it is somewhat chaotic, it really does bring us a lot of warmth,” added Wyckoff.
Farm owners like it too because they know they are bringing families together to create special memories year after year.
