It’s time once again to deck the halls. We’ve compiled a list of places to pick up trees, wreaths, and more so you can get to rockin’ around your Christmas tree in no time. There is some slight bad news this year: Turns out the real Grinch who stole Christmas is climate change. Tree farms across the Northwest were hit hard by the intense heat wave this past summer, so expect shortages and grab your tree ASAP. For more holiday merriment, check out our guide to holiday markets and shopping.
