Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
By James Pearce

Thanksgiving is now the traditional time for retailers to begin to sell Christmas trees.

The national trend is that one in three families buy a live tree. A third will use an artificial tree, and the rest will have no tree at all. If you are one of the live tree fanciers, here is how to choose and care for your large, live centerpiece.

The basic rule of thumb when purchasing a Christmas tree is to buy a fresh tree and keep it fresh. There are two simple tests for... [Read More]

How to Organize Your Seasonal Home Decorating
By Rachel Paxton

I don't spend a lot of money decorating my home. Many people don't want to spend the time or money to decorate with the seasons, but over the years I have learned some ways to creatively seasonally decorate that have cost little or next to nothing.

Because I work a lot, I don't spend very much time decorating my home. When I'm updating my home to a new seasonal theme, I don't spend more than a couple of hours arranging and rearranging to get a nice seasonal effect. H... [Read More]

How to Make the Most of Black Friday
By Susan Beane

I love Black Friday. The rush, the excitement, the prices! It is the one shopping day of the year where the only news is shopping. For shopaholics like me, Black Friday is better than Christmas. (Unless, of course, you get diamonds in your stocking, but that's another article).

Of course, my husband hates it. He makes sure his head is buried beneath his pillow when I head out the door every day-after-Thanksgiving. My ears will ring with his warnings about not spending... [Read More]

How To Get Great Holiday Pictures of the Kids
By Jeff Westover

There she was in all her glory. Long white lab coat, frizzy hair, safety goggles -- and a face smeared with the black ash of an experiment gone terrifically wrong. She was, at least on this Halloween night, Dr. Abby Normal. But for most of her life I had known her as Abigail, my daughter, and I had just taken some of the most legendary photos of her life.

These weren't your garden-variety portraits. Not exactly Wal Mart studio stuff either. They were pictures taken o... [Read More]
