Dark Shadows in the Christmas Tree Patch


Every year, on a cold winter’s evening, we all pile in the car to go to our favorite Christmas Tree patch and help my Mom pick out her tree.


The tree patch pops up in late November and surrounds the Krankies coffee air stream trailer with fresh evergreen trees, patiently waiting for a home.


I love running around through the rows of trees in the icy night air, under the string lights, searching for the perfect tree.


The trees cast long shadows over the parking lot and buildings. Everything feels a little spooky.

Especially near the Christmas Tree graveyard!


Before long we found the perfect little tree and my Mom posed with it.


I love the atmosphere of the Christmas Tree lot at night, with the dim lights, the scent of pine and coffee drifting through the air, and the tall shadows cast by the trees as they sit in long rows, waiting to be taken home.

Christmas Tree Patch

Every year we go to our favorite Christmas tree patch to pick out my mom’s Christmas tree. We have been going there for years, and it just has such an exciting, wintery feeling about it.

The Krankies coffee trailer moved to this location a few years ago, and it gets engulfed in Christmas trees every December. 

The scent of freshly brewed coffee fills the air and mixes with the piney scent of the trees.

A cup of hot coffee is the perfect thing to warm your frigid hands while shopping for the perfect tree.


We haven’t gotten our own tree here yet because I know the cats will just climb it and live in it.. Probably chew the light strands while they’re at it.. But maybe one day!

On this trip we were lucky enough to see a delivery of fresh trees! How exciting.

The trees laying down waiting to be put up makes me imagine a Christmas tree graveyard..


I love how the vintage style string lights illuminate the trees and cast long shadows. Giving a slightly eerie look to them.

Steven’s reaction upon seeing this picture: “I look like an NPC..” 

Then we all have a tree decorating party and cover the tree in vintage glass ornaments. I love it! I have never seen a prettier tree,

Do you have any fun Christmas tree traditions?

The Christmas Tree Lot

It’s not officially Christmastime until we get the tree! Steven and I have a fake tree, because we don’t think a real tree would stand a chance with our crazy cats, but it’s a tradition to go to this  patch to pick out my Mom’s tree. We hadn’t been here in a couple years, but we decided it was time to start this fun tradition back up again!

I love the atmosphere of the Christmas tree patch. It’s the perfect combination of Christmas mixed with creepiness, which is my favorite. 

All the tree are quietly lined up, waiting to be taken to their new home where they will be wrapped in lights and covered in shiny ornaments,

The smell of freshly brewed coffee from the Krankies bullet trailer, fills the icy cold air and mixes with the sharp scent of the pine trees. 

The dimly lit vintage Christmas lights cast long tree shadows on the ground. 

We run through the rows of trees, trying to stay warm as we search for just the right tree to take home.

Santa Claus can be seen helping anchor the trees to the tops of cars.
This is us trying not to look cold!

If you wander around towards the back, you find what we call the Christmas tree graveyard.  But really it’s just the newly cut trees that they haven’t put out yet.

The tools and netters are eerily lit. 

I love this place.
