The perfect Christmas tree

Describe getting a Christmas tree with your family as a child. How did you decorate it? When did you put it up?

For a while, we consistently had our Christmases in CT with my grandparents. (My mom's parents.) Until I was 8 or 9, I want to say... but it's hard to be sure. 
I remember my grandpa driving us all out to big snowy places with lots of big trees, and it was our job to pick one and cut it down. I remember it being really exciting. 

When I was younger, one of my favorite books was called 'The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree'. My mom would read it to me every Christmas, and sometimes just at night before going to bed. So I remember running around in the snow looking for the perfect tree. "On top of the rocky craig." 

We would set it up in the living room of my grandparents' house... star on top.

That's about all I remember.
