Jack Dillard: Get Into the Spirit by Visiting Merket’s Christmas Tree Farm

By Jack Dillard, The Times, Shreveport

If you are feeling a touch of Christmas season, that’s OK as December has arrived along with some chilly weather recently. It was last week when I went along with my son, his wife and family on a trip to choose a Christmas tree at the Christmas Tree Plantation near Beckville, Texas, which assured Christmas 2018 was nearing, and with a great granddaughter (5-year-old) provided a guarantee the season is not far away.
