Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow!

When picking out your tree this season, the magic words are fir, spruce and pine, preferably with the roots still intact, so that replanting your tree after its lights go out will be a simpler gesture.

The tradition of planting your "used" Christmas tree in your backyard or near your home, will teach your children to preserve the wonders of nature. You may also start having Christmas in July by decorating your tree outdoors during the summer months with homemade ornaments such as macaroni chains... I'd avoid the popcorn strands unless you want every bird in town nesting on ole Tannenbaum...

My thumb is just a light shade of green, so I'll direct you to what the folks at advise on how to replant your Christmas tree.
