Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree

Have you folks ever seen the lights at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville? They cover every tree and bush and it is beautiful. I don't know how they do it, but it looks as if they have lights going out every branch and twig on the trees. They have netted lights for the big bushes and certain of the trees. In fact, I just saw a news report this week that said they had started putting the lights up already. It takes an awful long time, I imagine. They charge $10 a car to park in their lot, but you can park over at the mall and walk for five minutes and you're there for free!

Looks like a very festive scene....needs snow though. You would think if they are going all out with that many lights they could haul in some snow. Then they could charge $15 to park and $35 to pull you out if yer stuck.
