Even though the stores say that the Christmas season started roughly back in August, odds are you're still not quite there yet.

So here's some useful info:  A new study figured out the best and worst times to buy a Christmas tree.

Unfortunately, the worst times are when you almost definitely want to buy one . . . and the best times are pretty lame.

The worst time to buy one is Cyber Monday, when the average price is $81. Black Friday is the second-worst time, at $77.

The best time?  CHRISTMAS EVE, when the prices drop all the way to $47.

Of course, if you actually want to have the tree for longer than one night, you can spend 10 bucks more and buy your tree for an average of $57 in the week leading up to Christmas.
