Holiday cards for 2012
are ready to be mailed! Yes, I know it
is only October and it may seem that I am rushing the season a bit, but October
is prime holiday shopping time, if you’re ready—and you can wait to give the
gifts until Christmas, can hide them and find them again!
The cards were made and purchased at Walgreens which had a half-price card sale last week. Okay, last year I was able to get our custom cards for free, so half-price is a bit more expensive.
I discovered last year that many specials and deals can be found in October for holiday gift giving. Some of the items on the list last season were custom mugs, calendars, hats, and t-shirts—many of which I snagged for free or at a discounted price just by watching the October special offers and discounts.
One of our holiday traditions is to take a ride on the Polar Express. Tickets for the North Pole Express go on-sale by mail in registration October 15. Phone reservations begin Nov. 1. Trains run the Saturday after Thanksgiving and the first two week-ends in December. Click here to read more about the North Pole Express.
So enjoy the rustling of the fall leaves, but keep and eye and ear out for sleigh bells, as the winter holidays will be here before we know it!
