O.K.
They were free this time last year. They’ll all be ugly rejects anyway, and who puts a tree up now? Heat for smell though, could make a nice table centrepiece of something for xmas day

Traditionally Christmas trees were put up on Christmas eve as part of the festivities, the whole family and the children taking part in decorating it and waiting for the presents to appear the next morning. It was because of this that the price of the trees was quite high on Xmas Eve and cheaper if bought before, hence most people could only afford a tree if bought way in advance of Xmas Eve even if risking having a withered tree by the day itself. Eventually this has become the norm and as a consequence the price went up for buying the trees in advance and dropped to almost free if bought in accordance with the tradition. Plus the shops benefit if they sell us the idea that xmas starts in November, the earlier the better for them, who can blame them. Its a funny world we live in

Not now
£1 in exeter but only a handful left. I got a 6ft Nordman Fir not bad but not the best tree I have bought - certainly the cheapest

B&Q Loughborough has loads of excellent-shaped trees in all sizes. Got a modest 6 footer in beautiful condition for £3 this morning.

As etta691 says, dressing a Xmas tree on Christmas Eve was traditional up until thirty or so years ago when the manic marketing of the festive season got pushed forward to September. We found it was a great way to keep the hysteria in our household down to tolerable levels, and the kids got used to my annual quest to get a cheap tree in the few days before Christmas. Plonk it in a bucket of water and leave it outside. Bring it in as it gets dark on Xmas Eve - now the family has grown and moved away and will reassemble with us on Sunday, they wouldn't like it if it was decorated without them there.
