Nick Tatakis of Wheaton readies Christmas trees at the North Bethesda United Methodist Church in December. The church's Christmas tree sale, along with at least one other sale in the downcounty area, was shut down the first week of December due to a little-known county law that doesn't allow Christmas tree sales before Dec. 5. Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett proposed removing the restriction, and the amendment to the county code is currently working its way through the County Council.
