Best Christmas Tree Farms in NE Ohio
It’s that time of year again, and for those of us who are nostalgic, or just want to do our best Clark Griswold impression, it’s time to go hunt for the perfect Christmas Tree! Per usual, we’ve done some research, did some Google searches, found some awesome resources, and also explored our area in Northeast Ohio to compile a list of Christmas tree farms for you. Before we jump into the list, we want to give a shout out to www.ohiochristmastree.org, who has been a tremendous resource in helping us compile our list. We hope that this list helps you find that perfect live tree, but if you already have a favorite Christmas tree farm, be sure to share it with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
During this time of year, we tend to all be in hustle mode, trying to get from one place to another, and trying to get decorations out or clean up the house before guests arrive. We want you sympathize with you there, but we also want to throw out a few helpful holiday tips to help ensure you have a fun filled and safe holiday season. One of the first things you think about around Christmas time is your Christmas shopping list, we all do! When you are out and about doing your shopping, make sure that you are aware of your surroundings when leaving the stores and walking through the parking lots. Crime increases during the holiday season, an easy target for thieves to see is a big shopping bag held by someone who is walking out of a retail store. One thing you can do to help protect yourself is to just look around and be aware of what’s going on. Too many times today, we bury our head and attention in our cell phone, we forget to pay attention to our surroundings. If you simply keep your head on a swivel, it can help you get to your car safe and sound.
Another thing to keep an eye on is your front doorstep. People typically order and receive many more packages during the holiday season than throughout the year, and burglars know it. If they can steal from you without even entering your house, they are happy to do so. You can designate an area around a corner for deliveries, or simply remember to keep an eye on your doorstep when you know a package will be arriving. If you have a trusted neighbor who stays home, you can even alert them and they may be able to hang onto the package until you’re able to get home. With the tracking technology we have today, it should be pretty easy to keep an eye open for things around the Christmas season.

If you live in Ohio, you know by now that the snow is coming during the holidays. (If you’re in the Cleveland area you likely saw all of the car pileups on 90 recently, be careful out there!) With
snow comes cold weather, or with cold weather comes snow, either way you should be prepared! Aside from making sure that you perform all of the recommended maintenance procedures for your car, you should always keep some extra things in your car during the cold weather seasons. You should always remember to carry a flashlight, warm clothes, an extra set of hat and gloves, a blanket, an extra power source to charge your phone (not just your car plug in), and some extra food and water in case you're stranded for an extended period of time. This may all seem a bit excessive, but it’s better to be safe than sorry!
During this time of year, many people tend to burn more candles in their home than usual. While the flicker and scent of a candle can set the Christmas mood very well, you should be careful and pay attention to these burning candles. Many people will also be using their fireplaces more than usual, so make sure to have them inspected and perform the suggested maintenance before using this holiday season. Burning candles and checking the fireplace before using may seem pretty obvious, but when we get busy these are some of the things we can overlook and forget. We hope that these tips help you better enjoy this Christmas season, and allow you and your family to stay safe!
