Just watched Celebrity Rehab and it's very sad watching what drugs do to the human body and mind. I'm thankful I did not go down that road.

On a happy note, there are still houses with Christmas lights being displayed.

Yes I am seeing the same thing as well!! Hope everyone has a good day tomorrow. I have a question that maybe someone can hopefully answer. XMAS365 you might know this one, when do stores start doing their buying for the next Christmas Season? I make vintage style plaques that would fit well in a Christmas type shop or in a in place that sells unique things. I have sold them to a lady who has such a store and I just give her a call in November. I have been encouraged by friends to " get them out there" to other places. I was told that some places know what they will have in their stores by March. Any input on this would be so helpful.
If it is MARCH then I really have to get busy !!!



Just thinking about it makes me relaize how fas it does go. I was very unorganized this past uear and dont want to make a repeat of it. It was soooo stressful!!! How do you guys go about organizing on a month to month basis. What needs done first for January?

I have the notebook but what do write in it?

Interesting info! Thanks for sharing.

[QUOTE=Murphman;318808]Interesting that you begin day one of the 12 days Christmas on Dec. 25th rather than the 26th. You are not the only one to do that and it is still a bit of controversy with historians as to when the Europeans celebrated the feast of the Epiphany, the 5th or 6th. Most calendars officially have Epiphany/Three Kings day (12th day) as tomorrow the 6th. [QUOTE]

When I ran my own areas I started prepping for Christmas in July, August, talking to my vendors, and letting them know what I wanted and expected by a certain time. I would look into it early, most of the first shipments of early Christmas stuff comes in July.

Good morning everyone! I stayed up until 1130pm. which is uber late for me and I still woke up 2 hours early at 4am..insomnia perhaps? anyhow we are one day closer to the next holiday season. I am so surprised how good I feel this year post holiday time. Usually in january i basically shut down and hibernate from friends and activites with them because I'm just too beat and plain sad that Christmas is over. This year I may have been really down last Sunday on the 2nd of jan. after the tree came down and life was back to 'normal'.

I contribute this year being different due to being part of this great great site and getting to know all you kind people,I'm so glad I decided to become a member here! Hope everyone has a great morning!
