We should all try to keep the spirit of Christmas alive in our hearts and lives the other 364 days of the year also. That should not be hard if we have the true spirit of Christmas dwelling within us, and that is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He came, and we celebrate His birth one day out of the year. However, He came to bring us joy and abundant life, and He didn't offer that to us for just one day, but for all eternity.

July 21, has arrived! That is the traditional date each summer when we officially begin decorating for the coming season. So, tomorrow will find us beginning that annual task.
We will be opening with our first tour on Saturday, Sept. 26th. It will be our 24th season to conduct public tours of our Christmas House. The store, Santa's Texas Workshop, will be open for shopping on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 27th, from 1:30 to 6:00. No appointments are needed for shopping that afternoon.
You will be amazed at the new merchandise that is "in store" for you. Christmas seems to get better every year. Just when we think that the designers and artists have exhausted their creative limits, they come up with even more spectacularly beautiful Christmas decorations of all kinds.
Our store may not be the largest in size, but we certainly have a very large inventory of everything Christmas that will rival much larger stores. And 90% of it is brand new for the 2009 Christmas season. Also, if you are 60+ years old or if you are or have ever been employed by a public or private school, you get a 10% discount on purchases totalling $10.00 or more.
Keep in mind that the store is open after tours for those in the group who want to shop. Those not taking a tour can call and make an appointment to shop then. We also open the store at other times, but it is always by appointment. Please don't think you are bothering us if you call to make an appointment to shop. That is our business, and we love doing it.

My, how time is flying. It's already April 9th, and the Christmas season here at The Christmas House is drawing to a close at the end of this month. There is still time to book a tour so you can see this season's decorations.
After we close, what we've done this season will never be seen again, because we undecorate totally and start all over with new themes and decorations later in the summer.
Our cousin, Mickey, was here for five days, and we packed about ten days worth of activities into half that amount of time. We really had lots of fun and spent time talking about what we want to do the next time she comes to see us.
We pray that you will have a wonderful Easter with your families and friends. Keep in mind that Easter, like Christmas, is all about Jesus. Praise God that He loves each of us so much that He was willing to give His only begotten Son so that we could have eternal life with Him in Heaven. Of course, we must have a personal relationship with Jesus, believing in Him and trusting Him as our Savior, in order to qualify for that eternal reward. That is God's desire for each of us.
Happy and blessed Easter to each of you who read this.
