Albany - This is the most popular day of the year to buy a Christmas tree. Paul Eames knows. He's been selling them in Albany for 44 years. As usual, there were plenty of people scanning his lot on Dawson Road in search of the perfect tree.

Christine Whittle said, "We've been coming here as long as I can remember to get our tree. Mom likes to be the first ones here. Kind of a tradition. We all come."

If you notice the price on the trees you buy this year is slightly higher, blame it on gas prices. It cost more to ship them to Albany. Also, trees are likely to be dryer and shed more this year because of the drought.
