    This Nostalgic Christmas Decoration is Making a Major Comeback

    I worked as a "pourer" in a ceramic shop in the 70's and these things were very popular. I made one for my grandmother that was about two feet tall and she loved it! Some years it was the only tree she would put up/out. Too bad it didn't survive a fire in her home!

  15. Polar Express is pulling into mid-Michigan 22 August 2019 by WILX Excerpt: OWOSSO, MI. (WILX) -- "All aboard...the Polar Express." The Pere Marquette steam locomotive No.1225 will make it's official appearance the first weekend of October, which will commemorate with the steam railroading institute celebrating 50 years. **** On October 4, in the afternoon, the train will leave Owosso and travel with Santa Claus and his elves on an excursion. But not just one Santa Claus - many from the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School of Midland will be on board. The school trains Santas, Mrs. Clauses, and elves from around the world, according to a press release. SOURCE Picture is from the 2018 CW Howard school that I attended.
  16. Santa Claus 'will always be a man', says Orewa Christmas parade job advert 22 August 2019 by Caroline Williams - Stuff Excerpt: Men will be the only gender to ever fill Santa's boots, say the organisers of a north Auckland Christmas parade. The role of Santa Claus in this year's Orewa Santa Parade was advertised online, with organisers adamant the person in the big red suit could only be a man. Newspaper group Local Matters reported the ad read: "We are in search of a fit and active man – yes, sorry, in the time of equality, Santa will still always be a man ..." **** A Human Rights Commission spokesperson said it was illegal for an employer to advertise for a specific gender unless it is proven the gender "is a genuine occupational qualification". "Sex is a prohibited ground of discrimination under the Human Rights Act." However, there were a number of exceptions to the law dependent on specific facts, including "reasons of authenticity" - which Wilkins insists applies in the case of here. SOURCE:
  17. Guests gobsmacked after Birmingham Airport Holiday Inn puts up Christmas tree just as Britain heads into 33C heatwave 23 August, 2019 by Kara Godfrey - The Sun EXCERPT: A HOTEL in Birmingham Airport has left Brits baffled by putting up a Christmas tree just before UK heatwave where temperatures are set to hit 33 degrees this weekend. Holiday Inn, who brought out the tree, have jumped the gun as there's another 124 days to go until Christmas Day. Ewelina Tomiszczak, Commercial Director of the hotel, told Birmingham Live that they put the tree up to "bring this delightful spirit to the hotel all year round". A spokesperson for Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport NEC added to Sun Online Travel: "I’m sorry to confirm that Santa isn’t making any early visits to the Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport NEC, the tree is part of a promotional display for our popular Winter Wonderland party nights which take place in November and December" A heatwave is expected to blast Britain this weekend, with highs of up to 33 degrees.

    This Nostalgic Christmas Decoration is Making a Major Comeback

    When I lost several of the little lights from a tree that I helped my mother make, I found them online from various sources. One caution, some of the bulbs from overseas are just a tiny bit smaller than the old ones. Check your sizes, I recommend getting them from someone who makes ceramic and sells supplies.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.
