Like we have for so many years,today we went to select our Christmas tree. This year we purchased a farm tree at the Milton Historical Society auction in September. We found the farm and wandered around looking for just the right tree. We should have gone last week but we did not know that people tag their trees as early as the weekend before Thanksgiving. After much consternation we found one that should work perfectly. We tagged it and will pick it up the weekend of December 8. That is, if we can squeeze in the time what with the Milton Holly Festival and a demonstration on holly wreath making happening on the same day.
It promises to be a busy few weeks around here. I have never lived where there is so much town activity the first week of December. We have tickets for the chicken 'n dumpling dinner host by the Goshen United Methodist Church. Then there is the John Milton Poetry Festival, the parade and holly festival. Oh, and my birthday falls that week. It actually should be a lot of fun.
