It's the most wonderful time of year when Christians go out to street corners and drop 70 bucks on long-dead evergreens to hoist in their living rooms and the Jews just laugh at them. Actually I'm wrong about that, there's something called a Hanakkuh bush, it's like a thing. It even has a wikipedia page. I had no idea.
But are you tired of dragging a tree up the street or strapping it to the top of your car or doing this to find the perfect Christmas tree, well here's exciting news: You can get a Christmas tree delivered right to your door, it's like Fresh Direct but for Christmas trees. The company that does it is called NYCtrees and it was founded by two New York brothers Harold and Louis DeLucia. The service offers 4-10 foot Fraser firs delivered to Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens. Every delivery comes with a tree stand and expert installation. The installers will even clean up the needles before they go. Yeah, I KNOW, that's pretty awesome since my tree is always crooked and I'm always picking up needles from five trees ago.
Also, these trees are farm-to-tree-stand supporting the regional tree farming community. Says one of the DeLucia brothers: “The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration. We want to give our neighbors the opportunity to not only have a great tree to display in their homes, but also share the feeling of supporting our local farmers.” And for every tree harvested during the Christmas season, the NYC Tree farms will plant 2-3 in its place. As the website states, "Each spring’s new plantings will be nurtured and cared for over the next decade." So you don't have to feel guilty.
And if that didn't make you love this service enough, NYCTrees is also a charitable company. They've launched a program called NYCTrees Cares and you can help them out. NYCTrees will donate 25 trees, one tree for each day from December 1st until Christmas, to families or individuals who cannot afford trees. You can actually help. All you have to do is email email@example.com and nominate a needy person or family for a free Christmas tree.
That's what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown.
