Here in Canada Thanksgiving and Halloween are behind us and the mighty retailers have stocked their shelves and have loaded up their weekly flyers with… Christmas. We even heard Christmas music on the radio last night. Yes – it is only November 9th. Our friends south of the border haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet. What do we do? Dive into Christmas straight away or put it off for a while? While I’m trying to decide, I might attempt to grow an Amaryllis. I found this instructional video to get me started and it doesn’t seem too hard. Having said that, there will be no “comments” at the Christmas table should there be no Amaryllis centerpiece. Got that Mom?
