With Thanksgiving out of the way, it's now time for the monthlong anticipation of Christmas.

We've rounded up spots in the greater Houston area where you can chop down a Christmas tree yourself.

Be smart: As it gets closer to Christmas, give the farm a call to make sure they still have trees available.

A-C Christmas Tree Farm allows you to cut their homegrown, chemical-free evergreen trees that they plant every January. You can also select a fresh-cut Fraser fir shipped from North Carolina.

  • Children can create handcrafted ornaments and drink a cup of wassail.
