Manalapan, NJ Christmas tree farm picked for Hallmark Holiday event
Do you feel honored, Manalapan? You should.
You know that special holiday programming that rolls around every year on the Hallmark Channel? Usually it's a theme like small-town girl who found a career in the big city comes back home for the holidays after strife with her noncommittal big-city boyfriend and she invariably falls in love with an old high school friend. Old friend is usually seen wearing flannel while chopping firewood or something equally manly.
Well, in order to promote their holiday programming this is the second year in a row that Hallmark Channel is doing Countdown to Christmas events across the country. Only 8 towns in all of the United States were selected, and one of them this year is Manalapan.
The event is taking place at Anne Ellen Tree Farm November 25 to 27 and December 3 and 4.
Guests can score some holiday goodies, pose for a commemorative Countdown to Christmas photo (guys, where flannel with the sleeves half rolled up) and random folks will be winning free Christmas trees courtesy of Hallmark Channel.
Anne Ellen Tree Farm is found at 114 Daum Road in Manalapan, NJ. Countdown to Christmas takes place from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the previously mentioned dates.
The farm is over 50 acres with more than 50,000 Christmas trees of five different types. You can do a choose-and-cut option or they offer pre-cut. Also? They have farm animals there for your kids to fall in love with.
This sounds like I'm starting to write the script for the next sappy Hallmark Channel Christmas movie.
