In medieval times, a Christmas wreath was traditionally hung on doors to indicate that wassailers could sing carols on the doorstep without fear of having boiling pitch poured on them. Garnish your gateway with this seasonal shrubbery with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a 24-inch Fraser fir Christmas wreath (a $20 value) at B & J Trees, a local tree farm with four easily accessible lots located throughout the Minneapolis/Twin Cities area. This Groupon is valid at the Richfield Farmer's Market, St. Louis Park, Eden Prairie Center and Maplewood Mall locations.
Tacking up one of B & J’s circular, freshly decorated circles of festivity is an easier way to celebrate the holidays than convincing mall Santas to come to your house or stringing elaborate light patterns that spell out your spec script for Two and a Half Men. Unlike ornaments and knick-knacks, post-holiday-season cleanup won’t require delicate storage. Groupon holders also receive a $5 coupon toward a Fraser fir tree (starting at $36.36), the supposed Rolls Royce of tree breeds. Stop by B & J Trees between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. and bring home some fresh-cut, pine-scented holiday cheer.
