Keeping it real

When Steve Chizzo of Shawano begins his preparations for the holiday season, he focuses on tradition, which includes buying a real Christmas tree.

"You don't get them like you used to, where you could just go into the woods and cut one down on your own -- it usually was a 'Charlie Brown' tree -- but it was fun," he said. "Me and my older brothers would cut them down."

Mary Beyer of Shawano said her family has put up a 9-foot tree every year since she can remember.

"We like to wait for the kids and grandkids to be around when we put it up now," she said.
