Christmas Tree Decorating Tips10 Easy Christmas Tree Decorating Tips

Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier ever year. If you haven’t already got your tree up, here are a few easy tips to make your Christmas tree look extraordinary.

  • 10 – ‘Fluff’ all of the limbs on your tree. If your tree is fake, take the time to ungroup all of the branches on every limb, try to fill in every hole. Yes it takes time, but it will make your fake tree look fuller, and more real-to-life.
  • 9 – Extra ‘fluff’ the bottom limbs. Don’t let your tree just cut off at the bottom, pull branches down with limbs pointing slightly upward to make it look rounded and natural.
  • 8 – Inside out. Add shiny, ‘filler’ ornaments to the inside first to make it look more full.

Remember To Be Generous This Holiday

Be Generous This Holiday Season

Life seems to speed up during the holidays. Our extra time is devoted to decorating, shopping, gift wrapping, and we seldom think of much else. Well, we want to remind everyone to be generous during the holidays. There are so many out there who won’t be getting anything this year.

A Story of Holiday Generosity

One of my favorite memories of the season is actually from my high school years. There was a teacher who got a little, wrapped gift for every single student in the whole high school, from 7th to 12th grade. This teacher didn’t drive a fancy car, or wear fancy clothes, or live in a big fancy house. She was admittedly poor herself, but her heart wouldn’t.. no, couldn’t let a single kid go without receiving something for the holidays. The gifts she gave were nothing fancy either. You might get a pair of used wool socks (I did one year) or some little hand-me-down something from one of her kids, but we knew she gave all she could. She didn’t see the gift as the important part, but the act of giving and generosity was something she wanted those who knew her to focus on. Such a great message for the holidays; I will never forget you, Mrs. Lopez.
