EXCERPT

Combining the warmth and cosiness of autumn with the magic of Christmas, the autumn Christmas tree works on many levels. This year, one of seven of John Lewis’ themed collections – Amber – takes inspiration from the golden tones of autumnal forests. The overall look is warm, cosy and inviting with a rustic, country feel that very much brings the sights, sounds and smells of autumn alive.

‘This Amber story is my absolute favourite,’ says Fionnuala Johnston, senior designer at John Lewis. ‘It has been inspired by arboretums, with natural layers of beautiful tones from Amber through to rich Chestnut. This beautiful rustic environment full of wildlife has a cosy and warm feel making me want to snuggle up with fur throws and mulled wine after a long walk.' John Lewis' Amber tree loses the bright reds, greens and silvers in favour of warm, earthy colours, which may – dare we say it – even inspire some to put their Christmas tree up earlier than tradition (those who put their Christmas decorations up early are said to be 'happier' than those who wait, after all).

An autumn-themed Christmas tree isn't entirely a new idea. A quick browse on Pinterest shows that 'fall' or 'Thanksgiving' Christmas trees are already popular decoration ideas. And remember (albeit a tad controversial), Halloween Christmas trees have also been gaining momentum in the last few years. Elsewhere, the rainbow Christmas tree is set to be the biggest Christmas decoration trend of the year, which will appeal to those who like experimenting with colour in different and adventurous ways.

While we don't have an Autumn tree, we do love harvest tones and start decorating for Autumn as soon as Labor Day is over. We have outdoor harvest decorations with cornhusks and hay bales and antique farm implements all arranged with Autumn flowers and pumpkins and gourds. We have Autumn wreaths inside and out and a lot of Autumn leaf garland and mantle piece decorations. The best part, is it all works as a base that we add Halloween and then Thanksgiving specific elements to when it comes time.

By the way...Hobby Lobby is already stocked, so it's not too early to shop.

Patrick: Though the above seems VERY COOL, I LOVED the way you have the outside tree decorated for the animals of your neighborhood! I'll NEVER FORGET IT AND TRYING TO PASS ON THAT IDEA here @ OUR HOUSE / home, BUT I know with the dog the tree would need to be outside the fenced in yard. Or she'll think it's all hers! LOL!

One Christmas I had a white tree in my choir room decorated with white lights, red poinsettias and red ornaments of different types.  I decided to leave the tree up for a year and decorate it for the different holidays and seasons to brighten up the space.  When Fall came, I covered the tree with artifical flowers with fall colors.  I received lots of comments on the "Fall" tree.  I moved it to use in our Fall Festival's Candy Trail and the people who came through the building went wild over it.

Why not an Autumn Tree. I know people who do a Halloween Tree and an Easter Tree, much smaller than the tree in the article, but still fun.

As big as ours is and the time it takes to put up and down, mine needs to find a way to be up all year!

    • George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation
      On October 3, 1789, President George Washington issued a proclamation naming Thursday, November 26, 1789, a national day of Thanksgiving.

      In it, Washington called upon all Americans to express their gratitude for a happy conclusion to the nation's war of independence and the successful ratification of the United States Constitution. Especially this year, as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, we should reflect on the full meaning of the day. Let’s strive to be truly thankful in our hearts this Thanksgiving.

      What better way to enter the holiday season?

    • Coping With Depression Before and After The Christmas Season
      With all of the joy, love, wonder, and excitement that Christmas brings the "professional" Santa; it can, for some, bring a bit of sadness, anxiety, and overall depression too. Now, many might think, "What!? How can Santa be depressed...it's Christmas!" but it truly can happen and it's good to inventory those feelings and problem solve what an appropriate solution might be.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.
