Hello Everyone! Its Almost Christmas In July

Wow, how time flies. It's been almost six months since my last post on Christmas Gifts From Bronzi blog. I hope everyone is do well.
I will be posting a couple of post on this blog because it's almost "Christmas In July". Your probably saying, "what is Christmas in July" mean when evryone is thinking about the beaches and the BBQ's.

Well, it's when the smart Christmas shoppers start to by now in July for their Christmas decorations and anything they can get now for Christmas.

It saves them money and time to get their stuff early. Plus you get the best selections of everything. It's not picked over and all of the batteries are fresh and are still in the packages. lol

Many places have their old merchandise mix with the new merchandise and they want to get rid of the old merchandise to make room for the new merchandise, too! If there is still merchandise left from last year, then the merchants will have it on clearance. 

You have to be quick though because the clearance prices will go back to the regular price as it gets closer to Christmas.

Well, this was a quick lesson on for 'Christmas In July' and what you need to start doing as soon as July first hits and that is, Start Your Shopping List Now!

And of course I wanted to say, "Hello Again"!

We'll talk soon!

Christmas Traditions, Then and Now

Author: Eztracks
The Birth of Christmas Traditions

Throughout history, Christmas has been celebrated by different cultures in diverse ways. In ancient Babylon and Egypt, there were mid-winter festivals that honored the ancient gods. The Romans celebrated Saturnalia, a festival dedicated to Saturn, the god of peace and plenty. During this festival, which ran from December 17th to December 24th, public gathering places were decorated with flowers and gifts and candies were exchanged amongst slaves and masters. In Scandinavia, a period of celebration known as Yule was held each winter at the end of the growing season. During this time, the population feasted on the summer's bounty. The Celtic culture of the British Isles revered all green plants as symbols of fertility and contributed celebrations revolving around the decoration of homes with mistletoe and holly. New Christmas customs appeared in the Middle Ages. The most prominent of these was the carol. By the 14th Century, such Christmas songs had become associated with the religious observance of the birth of Christ. In Italy, a tradition developed of re-enacting the birth of Christ and the construction of nativity scenes. The tradition of celebrating Christmas by decorating an indoor tree was established by Queen Victoria of England, while the author Charles Dickens popularized the idea of having a Christmas feast through his writing.

I like this recipe and I thought you might be looking for a new Christmas recipe for you and your family on Christmas day. For me, I love salads. Whether they are fruit of greens. I love them both!
