Door County Christmas…

We headed to Southern Door yesterday to cut down our Christmas Tree.  We have always cut our own and this year decided to head further south.  The trees at some of our usual haunts have gotten too big so we thought we would check out a new spot on County Line Road near the giant Door County sign.  When we got to the tree farm there wasn’t a soul around, but the trees looked beautiful so we pulled in.  We weren’t sure what we should do until we came upon this sign…

So, have heart people, there are still folks that believe that people are honest… at Christmastime, that seems fitting.

We drove around a bit and then got out.  Not only were the trees nice, they were a bargain.  All the trees were 25 bucks… even the Blue Spruce which is my favorite.    We found the perfect tree…

Jerry (Helen) who does our gardening at Egg Harbor Lodge made my hat.  She took the original to the Door County Fair and won the Grand Champion.  She then took it to the Wisconsin State Fair and won Grand Champion there as well.  Lucky for the girls and me because Jerry is making a hat for all of us.  They are super cute and the detail is amazing.  Mine of course is pink.

Anyway, we had a great day… it even snowed.  Today, we are going to decorate the tree and our house.  I bought some Irish Creme for the occasion, that and some Christmas music will make for a nice celebration.

Don’t forget, we have Egg Harbor Lodge Gift Certificates which make a really nice gift. Paired with a Door County Gift Certificate, it makes the perfect gift for the Door County lover on your Christmas list.

Door County Gift Certificates are available at the  Door County Visitor Bureau 920.743.4456 and are redeemable at most Door County businesses.

Enjoy the season, it comes and goes so quickly… soon enough we will be making plans for the annual Egg Harbor New Years Day Parade!  Stay tuned…
