It's known as the "most wonderful time of the year," but some families struggle to find that special winter wonderland.

For a few lucky families, an early gift means they'll have the Christmas morning everyone wants. Call it a happy holiday, from Happy Holler.

People lined up early Wednesday morning to pick out their trees.

"Come on in. First come first served. Pick out the one you like," said Bryce Caldwell.

Caldwell and his business partner, Andrew Edens, moved their lumber business to Central Avenue recently. They decided to sell Christmas trees on their lot for the first time.

"It's been a blast. We've had a lot of fun doing it," Caldwell said.

They knew they would have some leftover inventory.

"We thought, you know, instead of making a big to do about it let's just give the trees to some people who really need it," he said.

So they give the trees away to deserving families in their community.

Tia Thigpen is picking out a tree for her family. It's been five years since they have had a Christmas tree in the house.

"I think it's awesome because unfortunately some people just don't have the money to go out and get trees. If it wasn't for this right here I wouldn't be having a tree this year," said Thigpen.

It didn't take long to clear the lot.

"That's what Christmas is all about, so it's our way of giving back in a very small way," said Caldwell.
