TAMPA, Fla. — Dozens of families showed up to Christmas tree farms and small businesses to purchase Christmas trees on Black Friday.

Gallio Family Christmas Trees opened last week. Ed Gallio said he's been selling trees for 30-plus years. He loves watching families carry on the tradition of buying a real tree.

"I see people every year, and I see their kids come, and their families grow, and it's nice, nice to see these people, nice to talk to them. I just enjoy this time of the year," said Gallio.
