It's beginning to look like Christmas
It's never too early to get cracking for Christmas. The bright lights are already being put up and the distinct breeze is being felt throughout the world.
Already, many of Connecticut's 500 Christmas tree growers are opening for the holiday season.
The state Department of Agriculture says the Christmas tree industry has grown significantly in recent years and contributes about $10 million in annual economic activity.
Nearly 4,000 acres of farmland across Connecticut is planted with Christmas trees.
