And now on to Christmas

M&T Christmas Trees


Just a month to Christmas, and the signs of the Season begin to overtake our days.


Commercially we are being enticed to spend, as if our lives depended on it. Our thoughts are being directed to family and friends with suggestions of “Peace on Earth” urging us to ignore all else.


I enjoy Christmas in Sandy Utah. I can now celebrate it in reality with cards showing snow scenes, like those of my incongruous past where such scenes were viewed in shorts and not much else, such is December in the Southern Hemisphere.


On the corner of 9000 S and State Street, (NE corner) in Sandy UT, there are “live” Christmas trees for sale. M & T (the vendors) have set up a great site for their run to Christmas. “Live” against “fake” - USA farmed against foreign imports. All sizes, shapes and colors to suit your dwelling and your décor. ~ from kennel to mansion


The standing trees of the display make lots of nooks and crannies to explore; many more trees stay unfurled on pallets grouped by size. Roped trees are easier to get home on the roof of the family car.


M & T seek to educate on Christmas tree farming and their contribution to the environment (by oxygen replenishment), and about reindeer (Did I count 6 or 7 of them on view, all enjoying the changing customers?).


Add M & T Christmas Trees display display to your See and Do list for the coming weeks here in Sandy UT.

Hi Larry.  Does Utah grow its own Christmas trees?  North Carolina is a big Christmas-tree-exporting state.  There are huge tree farms on the mountain slopes, with rows and rows of Christmas trees in long straight rows. When I'm vacationing in the Blue Ridge, usually August, the thought of Christms makes me smile.

We use the artificial, pre-lighted trees. Much easier to work with every year and cuts down on the aggravation of untangling lights.

I prefer to focus on the true meaning of Christmas and ignore all the commercial aspects.

I had never seen a red, pink or blue Christmas tree until I saw your photo collage above . . . Wow!  Do people really use the colored ones?!

Dianne - we have some 'cut your own tree" farms, but most of the trees in our Christmas sale lots come from other states eg WA, WY etc

Than - certainly cuts down on cleaning and disposal after.

Diane - from my observations, the colored trees were for effect in the display. The ones finding new owners were of the green variety. The trees of my youth were spindly limbs of a casurina. Branches and needles pointed upwards, but somehow with decorations they passed muster.

Jeanne & Ralph - good stuff. We can so easily get lost.

Brenda - not to mention purple, gold and silver. Must be the influence of artificial trees. With the lights at night, the colored lights stand out. I like the lot the best after a dump of snow.
