It's the most wonderful time of the year! To be honest, I think part of the reason why the Christmas season is so wonderful is because of everyone's decorations, and of course, all the Christmas lights. There is just something so magical about all the lights that always tend to bring a smile to my face whenever I see them.

It is always exciting to drive around and see lights, go to your local tree lighting, and partake in all the "reindeer games" that happen over the holiday season. There are many Christmas trees that you can go visit, but one in Freeport, Maine, is a bit different than your normal tree.

According to Visit Freeport, Freeport's Talking Christmas Tree is finally installed for the 2022 season.

You read that right... a talking Christmas tree! The tree was donated by the Yilmaz family of Freeport and was installed on Monday, November 21st by Maine Tree Company.

Freeport, ME, has a ton of Christmas joy to bring you this year. Every year, Freeport presents Sparkle Celebration. According to Visit Freeport Maine, this year's festival (2022) kicks off on Friday, December 2nd.

Interested in finding this talking Christmas tree? Well, you will be able to find it on the corner of Maine and Bow.
