{Giveaway} Real Christmas Tree

**This giveaway is now closed **

We are excited to announce that lizinwfb is our winner! 

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, many of us are dreaming of turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. But after the big meal is finished, most families find themselves starting to prepare for the next big holiday. In my family, shopping for a Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving is a tradition and it wouldn’t be Christmas without a real Christmas Tree and the smell of fresh evergreens.

This year, HAP is partnering with the Wisconsin Christmas Tree Producers Association to give away a real Christmas Tree to one of our lucky readers!

When you think about it, purchasing a real tree is actually an eco-friendly choice. These trees are a renewal resource and are often planted in soil that does not support more delicate crops. Buying a tree from your local tree farm is also helping to support local farms in your area.   If you live in the midwest, visit www.christmastrees-wi.org for more information on tree farms in your area.

To enter our giveaway, please leave a comment telling us your favorite kind of real tree to buy for your home.  If you are selected as our winner, you will be sent a gift certificate to go and pick out your real Christmas Tree. 

Lots and tree farms for this particular giveaway are located in Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. Check out the website to see if there is a location by you!

This giveaway ends at 5pm (central time) on Friday November 25, 2011.

You must be 18 years of age and a citizen of the United States to enter. No purchase necessary. The winner will be chosen at random.

    Fraiser Fir is the most wonderful Christmas tree!!

  4. Kelly

    We love the Frasier Fir also, they hold all our heavy ornaments and is so easy to decorate!!!

  5. We don’t have a favorite because we’ve never been home for Christmas before! But with our first child due on January 3, we’re planning on making our home festive this year. I can’t wait to put up my very first real tree!

    i don’t have a favorite, as we’ve never had a live tree before. seeing the comments above, i think i will look for a fragrant fir!

    I’m a fan of the Frasier Fir – the small needles make it easy for ornaments to shine and sparkle in the light and the tree seems a bit less “sappy”. My husband prefers the long needles and deep evergreen smell of a White Pine. It brings back warm memories for him. Our first year together in our new home we had BOTH! The pine on the front porch with white lights and the fir prominently displayed in the picture window with colored lights. We got lots of fun comments from our new neighbors!

    We seem to always get a Douglas….. and NOT just because my hub is Doug. Tee hee. I can’t wait!

  10. Tiffany

    We don’t have a favorite, but from other’s comment’s the Frasier Fir seems the best to me! Maybe we’ll go with that one this year!

  11. Joe

    Apparently Frasier Fir is the way to go, but I must say I like a free one!

  12. Lesly
