OK, Folks!
Time to launch my annual "Christmas Blossoms" thread!

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place where everyone who wants to can post Christmas related photos they, family or friends have taken.
(No copy/paste from the internet, please!)

What we are mainly looking for is signs of Christmas you spot as we move toward, and then into, the 2008 Christmas Season.

To get things started, here are a couple of photos I took yesterday at our Crabtree Valley Mall shoping center where the annual shop "A Christmas To Remember" just opened!

Now last year, we had lots of interest but few contributions.
I hope this year will be different!
So get your digital (or non-digital) camera ready and watch for signs of Christmas!
Post them here.
Thanks, guys!


This store appears at Crabtree every year but not in the same place.
You just never know where it will pop up!
(Kind of fun to speculate on!)

I think it is. Seems to me I've seen it other places, too.

Wonderful early enthusiasm. Thanks!

(Just think of it like a Christmas-related photo scavanger hunt!)

Thanks for "Stickfying" it, Jeff.

Technically, these aren't Christmas related...but they do indicate the coming of Christmas in my neigborhood.

This is some of the fall color we're having right now:



And this is our first glimpse of snow this year. Yes, it is way up in the mountains around 10,000 feet but this picture was taken at the end of my drive way, so it counts:
