One of the best holiday traditions for city dwellers are all the Christmas tree stands. You’re walking along the same sidewalks you zip through every day, but now they are filled with trees! That smell like pine! And they are all over the place. The concrete jungle turns green. Ish.
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →

And one of the best things about living in North Carolina is that I can go up to the mountains and see where all those Christmas trees come from.;-)
Spent the weekend in Ashe County just before Thanksgiving and there was semi after semi full of Christmas trees heading north; probably to that very lot. Ashe is the second largest grower of Christmas trees in the US.
Very cool. I can’t imagine what that looks like. Did you take pictures?
Not of the semis, no. I did take a picture of a barn quilt at one of the Christmas tree farms. I’ll send it to you once I get a little organized today.
I loved the picture you sent me. The countryside looked so heavenly. I want a barn.
