It's that wonderful time of the year, the holiday season is almost here! Yuuppp folks, so that means the cheesy vibes and symbols are right around the corner. House decorations, candy canes, hot cider, hot chocolate,  presents and of course a holiday tree!

To be honest, I don't 100% agree with the term "Christmas Tree." You don't need to celebrate Christmas in order to get a tree in your household, so why not disregard this label and add this wonderful piece of decoration to your home this holiday season? Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Diwali, a tree will make a wonderful statement piece in everyones household at the end of the year.

There's a big difference between fake trees vs real trees, and those of you who have had one - know exactly what I'm talking about. It's that fresh scent, you smell when you wake up every single morning that makes it so appealing. Now I must warn you, with all needles falling off the tree it may take a little bit of maintenance, but it's so worth it to have a real tree in your house because it will make the cold winter so much warmer!

Now I hope after this whole schpeel, you're interested in having a real tree for the holiday season this year! In order to get the ultimate tree, you have to go to a farm. It's such a wonderful experience to harvest your own tree! Not sure where to go? No worries because I've got you covered. Here's a list of 12 places near Toronto where you can get the ultimate Christmas tree:
