Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season, which means besides turkey and stuffing being prepared, our homes are being prepared for Christmas and the arrival of the Christmas tree. Square, a tech company that helps businesses process credit card payments, crunched numbers from thousands and thousands of tree sales in 2016 to determine the best, and worst days to buy your tree this year. They say the most popular day to buy a tree is the first Saturday in December after Thanksgiving weekend (that'll be December 2nd this year), and that is likely when crowds will be at their worst. To avoid crowds you'll want to go for your tree in the middle of the week, and the closer you get the Christmas the less crowded and less expensive the experience will be. However expect to pay more for a tree this year as supplies are not as plentiful as in year’s past.  Thanks to the Great recession of 2008, tree farmers planted less trees and many farms went out of business that year and this year is when those trees are ready for harvest.
