BILLINGS - Last minute shopping sometimes includes getting the Christmas Tree.
Peace on Earth Christmas Trees at the corner of 24th Street West and Broadwater saw many customers Sunday.
Sometimes people have been out of town, family shows up, or they're looking for a bargain.
Some even have come to town for Christmas and are taking the tree to their hotel room.
Whenever the customers buy their trees, it's a festive atmosphere at the tree lot.
"Overwhelming, just wonderful people," said Aaron Molnar, owner of Peace On Earth Christmas Trees. "Just happy, have the little ones running around. I do my little mobile forest and the kids go nuts, they're run all around. It's always a blast. It's usually a pretty happy environment."
Molnar says he will keep selling even as he is breaking down the lot on Christmas day.
