A Visit from Saint NicholasClarksville, TN – Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house;
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

And mamma in her kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap—

Tennessee Agriculture says Christmas Tree Farms are not just for Trees Anymore

 

The Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – Christmas trees are not the only draw to Tennessee’s Christmas tree farms.

“The best reason to visit a local Christmas tree farm is to make great memories,” Tennessee Department of Agriculture Marketing Specialist Clay Dunivan said. “People have so much fun being outdoors at a farm during the holiday season.”

“Friends and families can enjoy a wagon ride through the trees, drink hot chocolate or cider, see Santa Claus, take a holiday crafts class, and even make their own wreaths and garland—with the help of the farmer, of course,” stated Dunivan.
