Today is Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018. Here’s what you need to know: 

Good morning,

Even though it’s September, it’s never too early to start prepping for the holiday season. 

If you don’t feel like lugging a Christmas tree back to your house a la Clark Griswold, Amazon has you covered this year.

For $115, the online retailer will deliver a real 7-foot Christmas tree right to your front door. The trees will be delivered in enormous boxes and will arrive within 10 days of harvesting.

Amazon previously sold miniature trees, but this is the first year the company will offer live, full-size trees.
