An expensive holiday season

KVIA

EL PASO, Texas-- The day after Thanksgiving is not just the tradition of Black Friday, there's arguably an even bigger tradition, the purchase of the family Christmas tree. It might just be a little more expensive this year due to inflation.

According to research done by the real Christmas Tree Board, all 55 growers of trees polled in August, which makes up two-thirds US market share in total, are expected to see increases in prices.

71 percent of the growers polled are expected to see an increase in wholesales from 5 percent to 15 percent.

While prices are expected to be a little more expensive this year, don't hold back to go out with your family to do this historic family tradition.

Trees are being sold at Whole Foods Market in West El Paso for seventy dollars, and trees are also being sold at Home Depot, and Lowe's ranging from around forty to sixty dollars.
