We all have them, usually we're related to them: people that are nearly impossible to buy Christmas presents for. I don't know this for a fact, but I would bet one of the most common reason people dread Christmas shopping is the anxiety involved in finding gifts for hard-to-buy-for people. What do you do? Here are a few ideas that might help.
This is kind of weird, I admit it, but I was actually thinking about putting up my Christmas tree before Halloween. I didn't put the tree up, but I was thinking about it. Now that November is here and the time has fallen back, we start looking ahead to the final weeks of 2015. Thanksgiving will be here soon, and then we'll be in the Christmas season. When will you put up your tree?
There's a good chance you'll catch 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,' 'Frosty the Snowman,' or 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' on TV during the holiday season. Viewers have been watching these specials on television for decades. Many adults make it a holiday tradition to watch these shows, which they remember from their own childhoods, with their own children and grandchildren. Some adults even watch them without children and grandchildren!
In our house, Christmas presents were always opened on Christmas morning, but that's not the tradition for every family. When I was growing up, I was always jealous of kids that were allowed to open presents on Christmas Eve. When does the unwrapping begin at your house?
Everyone knows that states like Tennessee, Georgia and Texas produce a lot of country music stars, but several top talents in the genre are from the Show-Me State. Sara Evans, David Nail and Tyler Farr are a few modern country artists from Missouri, which is also the home state of classic country stars like Porter Wagoner, Helen Cornelius and Leroy Van Dyke. Which country star from Missouri is your favorite?
I've always heard about Black Friday shoppers fighting over hot Christmas items, but I've never actually seen a fight break out. That might be surprising, as it turns out I live in one of the Top 5 states "where you’re most likely to encounter fights at Black Friday sales."
Good news for Missouri shoppers. The price of a Thanksgiving meal is not going up very much in 2015. The American Farm Bureau Federation says that the price for most items used to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal will be very similar to 2014 prices.
This morning I saw a news report on holiday shopping. It mentioned that some Quincy Mall business owners are a little concerned about the upcoming season, now that JC Penney is no longer an anchor store at the mall.
Any contest that has a category called "Clark Griswold" sounds like a good idea to us! If you're one of those people - or are a part of one of those families - that goes a little crazy with Christmas lights, tinsel, animatronics, inflatables, and artificial snow, then this is for you. Hannibal Parks and Recreation is sponsoring a house decorating contest during the holiday season.
