Have you bought your Christmas tree yet? Well…. here’s the place to go.

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Oh! Things!|Ottawa

I am feeling merry. Mark and I picked up our Christmas tree at the Royal Ottawa Hospital last night. Woot!

Did you know that this year is the 30th annual Christmas tree sale at ROH? I had no idea, but I DO know that proceeds from the sale of trees go to programs at the ROH. And that’s something I can totally get behind.

Christmas trees at the Royal Ottawa Hospital

It was SO COLD last night. Cold, but pretty. I felt so sorry for the fellows who were helping customers with their trees.

We let our tree defrost in the mudroom last night. We picked out a tall green, prickly popsicle but woke up to a real beauty; a seven-foot air freshener! I am very excited about it.

You should know that Christmas trees at the ROH will be available until December 23 or until they run out (whichever comes first). Get the details on the ROH website – including sale hours – so make sure to check it before you head out.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
