Day after Thanksgiving: ‘Part of it is tradition and part of it says Christmas to me’

Email

WILLMAR — Every year since about 1960 Carole Vennerstrom has come to the same locally-owned nursery to buy the family Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving.

This year was no different.

Vennerstrom, 81, spent Friday afternoon with her daughter and two grandchildren walking through a maze of freshly-cut trees that were hanging right side up and gently twirling from the ceiling of a new greenhouse at Stacy’s Nursery in Willmar.
