It’s that time of year when you stick a bunch of lights and decorations on the outside of your house and bring trees and other shrubbery inside to decorate. (We do it too, but still admit it’s a bit of an odd habit.)
With that in mind, here are a few places to find your Christmas tree in the Sacramento area:
