While in the Square, viewers can browse through hundreds of trees provided by The Home Depot, while treated to Tassimo hot cocoa and orange juice provided by Tropicana. Plus, tree sale shoppers will be eligible to win amazing prizes on site, including a chance to win a trip to Universal Orlando Resort. The sale continues beyond the broadcast until all the trees are purchased.
