Where to buy your Christmas tree in Leicestershire this festive season
Christmas may still seem a long way off, but with just over a month to go it's time to start planning the exciting stuff - like finding a tree.
There are no shortage of fake ones for sale on the High Street and if that's what you want then any of the major retailers such as Argos, John Lewis or even Tesco should see you right.
But if it's the real thing you are after then wrap-up warm and make it a family day out.
