After the Thanksgiving feast and Black Friday shopping, comes Christmas decorating. 

People eager to find the perfect Christmas tree were out at Nieman’s Christmas Tree Farm.

But for the Cook family, it wasn’t just about the tree.  It was more about tradition.

“It's coming out here with the whole family, finding a Christmas tree, cutting it down,” said Luke Cook who brought his wife and three kids to find their tree.

“Here we are today with my children's children, my grandchildren, and we're all cutting trees again,” said Linda Cook, who remembers cutting down a Christmas tree when she was a little girl.

Nieman’s has 48 acres filled with about 20,000 trees. 

“We all pick it out together but we usually go through three or four or five before we get to the perfect tree,” said Linda Cook.

The Cooks found their three trees in about an hour and continue their Christmas tradition decorating the tree.

“Probably tomorrow night we'll start,” said Luke Cook.  “We'll put it in the tree stand and me and my son will trim it up and then put it in the house and start decorating it.”

Nieman’s says the number one mistake people make when picking out a real Christmas tree is buying one that’s too big for their home.
