SAN ANTONIO – Cut your own Christmas tree farms might seem like something you can only do up north but there are actually several Christmas tree farms in the San Antonio area.

If chopping down your own Christmas tree has been on your holiday wish list, you can make your wish come true this year. It will be just like a Hallmark movie, except you may be wearing shorts instead of a parka.
