This year will, without a doubt, be challenging because of covid limitations. Still, the spirit of the holidays can remain with modifications and we can still enjoy fresh Christmas trees in our homes during lockdown. 

I've always personally opted for a fake tree, but I understand how special it is to cut your own tree as a family. The great thing about this tradition is that it's largely outdoors, which is great given the current state of the world as it pertains to staying safe and healthy.
