Christmas time means family, friends, gifts and of course, a Christmas tree.
If you live in an apartment or condo, it is probably much easier to get an artificial tree and just break it out every year -- which is exactly what I do. For one, a fake tree is cheaper. It can also be difficult to find a freshly cut tree in the District.
If you're looking for a real tree, a local blog gives a few hints on where to get one.
