We were out at the park today and we went for a hike with the kids. There were some baby trees there and it made me think. I hate the idea of cutting down a living tree and bringing it in my house at the holidays. I'm allergic to pine so I use that as my excuse. But I would like to just ignore my allergy and start having a tree. But fake ones look fake...
So, here's what I was thinking... Why not go buy a small potted evergreen tree (maybe 2-3 feet tall) keep it potted in the house, decorate it for Yule/Christmas, and then at the end of the season, we could plant it...
What do you all think... Is that really strange? Do you think it could be a good tradition?

Anon, go crawl back under your rock.
Sabrina, I think it is a really cool idea. Do you have a big enough yard to plant one every year or know someone who would let you plant in their yard?

That is a pretty popular thing to do here. At xmas time a lot of places that sell trees often sell some planted in pots so that you can transplant them outside afterwards.
