Christmas is right around the corner, which can only mean one thing: putting up and decorating the tree.
Families will be looking to go all out with the decorations in 2020 since Christmas parties and work dos are off the table.
In fact, it seems like the country is more excited about the Christmas season than ever after an unprecedented and tough year.
While some opt for artificial versions, which are usually easier to put up and last forever, buying and dressing a real tree can be an exciting festive activity with a magnificent end result.
But be warned, real Christmas trees have a short lifespan and typically last for about four weeks before they start to shed their pine needles.
For this reason, The British Christmas Tree Growers Association (BCTGA) recommends buying your tree at the beginning of December if you want it to last throughout the holiday season.
This means you should start planning where to buy your tree from now, and many outlets are already selling them, with the appropriate Covid restrictions in place.
Here’s where, and when, you can buy a real Christmas tree in Lancashire.
