    A mod can move this thread if it's in the wrong place . . .

    What's the difference between the threads . . .
    - Christmas Blossoms
    - Daily Dose of Christmas
    - Christmas Pic of the Day

    Thanks in advance!

    Unofficial answer (pardon my rush, a job just hit my desk):
    Not much difference between Daily Dose of Christmas and Christmas Pic of the Day, I guess. People start new threads without realizing that something similar already exists.
    Christmas Blossoms is a special case: it debuts each September (more info about this in the Countdown thread) with pics of Christmas items appearing on retail shelves for the first time during the season.

    Does Jeff ever go through the forum, combining threads and deleting obsolete and/or dead threads? Or moving them to Archive?

    A belated welcome to MMC, Dudley!

    MerryCarey explained “Christmas Blossoms” very well.

    You will also notice two Christmas Countdown threads. Two or three years ago MMC absorbed another forum group called “Christmas Talk.” The two were already Merry Network affiliates with many common members.

    When the owner of CT announced that those forums would be closing due to less time to devote to them, Jeff generously (his is a Christmas heart after all) offered space for their members here. This thread is in the CT section of the MMC forums.

    Since some of CT’s similar threads to MMC’s were started and established at the old place, members brought them to MMC when moving in. We wanted them to feel welcomed and not overwhelmed so they maintain some of the customs and threads from CT.

    Hopefully this explains why we are able to enjoy twice the fun with certain threads! Current members are by no means restricted or discouraged from meandering anywhere they wish! Some just may feel more comfortable in a chosen thread or area.

    Yes. MMC forums are combed through every so often and threads are archived or realigned as necessary. Most of the daily observations are aimed at shooting down spam threads & posts.

    Now it's all making sense.

    Thanks!
