Friday, October 26th is National Pumpkin Day, and there is no place I would rather celebrate than a Christmas Tree farm.
I’ve made it no secret that Halloween isn’t my most favorite season, and I basically just use it as a countdown until my favorite time of the year, Christmas. But there are a few traditions I can still embrace, and visiting a pumpkin patch is pretty high up the list.
When it came time for our pumpkin adventure, Faison, Chelsea, and I headed out to Eustis, Florida to visit Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest for their Lot of Pumpkins. Santa’s Forest really goes all out in their pumpkin offerings, with a very healthy selection of various sizes of pumpkins, ranging in price from $3-$12. They even have a carving station so you have the option of carving your pumpkin on site (which means you can leave the mess behind!). The $5 price of admission also includes a hay ride and their petting zoo as well!
Okay, now the pumpkins were fun and all, but the real reason that I was so drawn to this place is that its main product is CHRISTMAS TREES. I know, I know, I bet you’re absolutely shocked to discover that a place called Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest might specialize in Christmas trees, but I already cannot wait to head back once Christmas season starts to cut down my very own Christmas tree.
A Lot of Pumpkins is open until October 28th, and the Christmas festivities begin November 17th at Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest!
Happy Holidays, and I’ll see you at the Christmas tree farm!
Til next time,
