Organize before you stow away holiday décor
It’s always a little sad when we have to take down the holiday decorations.
Maybe that’s why we tend to hurl everything into the nearest box and wad up the lights until they’re twisted into an impossible knot.
I finally realized something during my Christmas break.
My family isn’t athletic. We aren’t famous. But that doesn’t stop us from being the most competitive family of uncoordinated unknowns in the Upper Midwest.
They say 20 percent of Americans plan to return at least one gift during the holidays, according to a Consumer Reports shopping poll.
No wonder standing in that return line feels longer than a drunken karaoke version of “Freebird.”
Christmas has barely passed, but it’s already time to solidify plans for New Year’s Eve on Friday.
You don’t have to make a big splash to ring in 2011, but here are a few local places that have events planned.
Troy Gilbertson loves “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” a comedy film in which Chevy Chase’s character, Clark Griswold, goes to great lengths to light up his home for the holiday.
“We’ve watched that forever – since I was a kid,” Gilbertson says.
And that’s as it should be for The Forum’s 2010 winner of the Clark Griswold Christmas light display contest.
More than likely, you either gave or got a gift card today.
Gift cards have become big Christmas business. The National Retail Federation expected total spending on gift cards to reach nearly $25 billion this year. Gift cards were the most-requested holiday gift for the fourth year running, the retail trade association said.
