On a warm day last week, I finally managed to yank the holiday greens out of my pots and replaced them with some smiling pansies.

On Nov. 23 around 8:15 p.m., police received a call about a female who was seen taking Christmas decorations from a yard on the 400 block of Dearborne Avenue in Blackwood, NJ.
Philadelphia police have arrested a suspect for stealing Christmas decorations.
Lots of local arboretums have Christmas greenery sales this time of year. In fact, there are two coming up this weekend.

Crafting your own holiday decorations can save you cash to spend in other areas of your budget or for other holiday novelties.
If you walk into a retail store today, there’s a good chance you will see a Christmas display. Retailers are hoping to maximize sales by getting an extra early jump this year.
Saving pointsettias is complicated. Remember, if a plant is making you feel pressure instead of pleasure, you don’t need permission to give it away or move it along.
When a strong winter wind blows, it’s easy to keep evergreens and other decorations where you want them with a few well-placed sod pins.
If you’re tired of having Christmas tree needles all over your floor… sweep them up and toss them in your garden – evergreen boughs and needles make good mulch.
PlanetChristmas.com is where you’ll see the best (or some might think the worst) Christmas light displays anywhere.
A wreath doesn’t have to be round. A square or rectangle is easy to make and you can even use an old picture frame as a wreath form.
