Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
I went on a cruise a couple of years ago during the summer, it was a good experience. I have always wanted to go on a cruise during Christmas, has anybody ever gone on a cruise at Christmas time if so how was your experience?
I too love cruising!!!! I have even entertained the thought of taking the kids on a Christmas cruise. It is VERY expensive in my opinion. I think it would be very beautiful!! I would feel funny though spending Christmas away from all of our extended family. We are quite close and it wouldn't feel the same.
My family and I have been what they call a Christmas Cruise, its only for a couple hours though.. the boat takes us around the huge lake to see the light displays and then to the "North Pole" to see santa... it so FUN! Nice thing about it is, children 12 and under are free so 3 of my kids are still free
“Journey to the North Pole Cruises”
Visit Mr. and Mrs. Claus on the far shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene (Cd'A) where at "The North Pole" a magical toyland, with a variety of holiday themes, many with animated features, will suddenly appear out of the darkness.
We had added an exciting new attraction this year, our Victorian Village is adorned with over 5,000 lights!
You will view the show aboard one of the fabulous cruise boats of The Lake Coeur d'Alene Fun Fleet.
Ya, like others said (a few) I would prefer not to have one at christmas.
I mean, Im not big into cruises anyways but maybe during summer or another time would be ok, but for me, I like christmas at home.
A cruise would be like Christmas With The Kranks (Or what they wanted to do)
I'm defintely sold on cruising. And I hear the cruise lines go all out for Christmas. But if they go all out for Christmas the way they go all out for everything else then I'll never do a Christmas cruise. What makes Christmas great are the subtle things, not the spectacular. Mark vote down for being home for Christmas.
