The modern tradition of the Christmas tree is believed to have developed in Germany during the 16th century when devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes.

There are few purchases that you'll make this year that will bring you as much joy as what you get when buying a Christmas tree. 

To experience the continuing tradition of selecting the Christmas tree, Vermont Edition recently visited Purinton Christmas Tree Farm in Huntington, where Owner Peter Purinton explained how to select the perfect tree for the holiday.
