Thanksgiving was just a couple days ago but Christmas is already on a lot of folks’ minds. Knowing this, the Christmas Tree lots are already popping up all over town. Here’s the best bets for Fremonsters looking to secure theirs soon…
Here in town, Fleur De Lis Garden Ornaments will be selling Christmas Trees through December 24th or until they sell out.
For almost sixty years now, the Boy Scouts have been selling trees in Ballard. The scouts are once again set up in the parking lot of St. Alphonsus Church (at the corner of NW 57th and 15th Ave NW). Open at noon all week, the lot will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. starting this Saturday until December 19th, unless they sell out of trees early.
Over in Queen Anne, the Queen Anne Helpline and the Boy Scouts of America Troop 72 have opened their annual Christmas tree lot in the Upper Queen Anne Safeway parking lot. The tree lot will be open now until Sunday, December 21 (or until the trees sell out). Check here for the daily hours, which vary.
If you want to support the fight against AIDS, you can buy your Christmas Tree over in Capitol Hill at the Dunshee House. Running through December 23rd and open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day, proceeds from sales benefit the Seattle AIDS Support Group.
If you want to learn everything you could possibly need to know about Real Christmas Trees and how to find a good one, visit the Pacific Northwest Christmas Tree Association. And of course, if you do get a tree, it’s not complete until you’ve added your very own Fremont Troll ornament to it.
Finally, if you’re more concerned with decorating your house than you are with your tree but don’t have the time or energy to deal with it, Fremont’s got you covered. Holiday Spirit Lighting will hang your Christmas decorations and lights for you so you can just sit back, relax, chug an eggnog latte and enjoy. They’ll even take down the lights for you when the holiday is over and a portion of sales goes to Toys For Tots.
