We're Baaaack!

Yes, it's time again to post our annual and highly anticipated Christmas Photo page!

Time again to search for Christmas Blossoms - visual signs that Christmas is coming and that we are entering and moving through Christmas Season 2010!

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to post any Christmas Season related photos you, your friends, or family have taken this year.
(Please, no internet copy/paste!)

As per tradition, I launch this thread with photos of "A Christmas To Remember", our recurring annual Christmas store at Crabtree Valley Mall.
The photos below show it in it's new location this year.
(Every year they move into whatever space is available)

Enjoy (and please contribute to!) the photo collection in this thread, so we can really start getting into Christmas Season 2010!


A) Taken just hours ago!

It gets so exciting when this thread opens! I love to see all the pictures of Christmas beginning to blossom!
Thanks Crown!

If I had been thinking, I would have taken pictures of the store I was in at Niagara Falls today! I picked up lots of Christmas stuff there.
From now on I will remember!!! cheesy

Incredible! A little earlier than last year, too! I love it, Crown. As a big fan, this thread warms my heart and increases my excitement toward the Christmas Season. We are now less than three months away and it is fantastic to know that signs will be popping up everywhere!

On another note, A Christmas To Remember looks elegant this year. Is there no place for a window display? Even so, I really like the look with the wooden doors. It is classy! Can't wait until we are all surrounded by Christmas in a few short weeks. The Season may not begin until November 13th, but I expect to see decorations making their way to into my vision shortly!

Thanks again, Crown!!

:hello: Popped in for something at the local Canadian Tire store and saw the boxes of trees and the signs for the items yet to come. Hope they'll let me take pics of the decorations.

My pleasure.

The space was occupied until a few months ago by an outdoor provision company that sold garden equipment, lawn chairs, etc. "A Christmas To Remember" took the space and left the doors intact.
Yes there is a window outside toward the parking deck but the view inside through it is marginal.

I am not very good at posting pictures but I will try. These were taken today at a local nursery called Donzell's at their annual Fall Festival !! I think if you click on them you can see them better. I don't know how to post them already "big" :-?

They may be small but they're nice!
Thanks.

(Don't know what the trouble might be. When I post mine they just automatically come up full-sized.)
