By now, you’ve woken up from your turkey coma to find things have turned into a holly, jolly Christmas world.

So, it’s time to get a Christmas tree.

Now, exactly when to get a Christmas depends.

Christmas in Forsyth

Check out our local holiday guide in the Wednesday, Dec. 4, edition of the Forsyth County News or read it here.

For a time, it was traditional to put up a Christmas tree and take it down in coordination with the official 12 days of Christmas. Others put the tree up with the start of the Christian season of Advent (which begins today).

These days there’s little formality to when a Christmas tree should go up in the home.

Whatever your preference, there are plenty of options in Forsyth County to get the perfect tree that lasts through the holiday season.
