It started when a few of us went off to college, and my parents thought it would be nice to wait until everyone had returned before selecting an evergreen. Being the last one on the block with a tree in the window has worked out well for us; there are usually crazy discounts the day before since Christmas trees aren’t exactly useful after the fact.
If you’re late to the game like my family, why not add a popcorn garland to the tree this year? Plus, in the video above, I divulge my secret for making air-popped popcorn without having an air popper, which is all kinds of useful, even after Christmas. Keep reading »
