Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful week! Looks like there may be a chance of snow next week!
Have you gotten your Christmas tree up yet? We did that last Monday night! It’s one of my favorite family traditions. We always get a live tree, and we decorate it with colored lights….although this year, we had to use half colored and half white lights, because we didn’t have enough colored lights.
Christmas trees became popular in the United States after Germans came to help the British fight all the way back in the Revolutionary War. Those early Christmas trees were lit with candles! They used whatever they had for decorations….apples, figs, popcorn, cranberries, and pastries cut out into stars, hearts, and flowers.
Here are a few more facts about Christmas trees. It takes 15 years for a Christmas tree to grow to an average height. Franklin Pierce, our 14th president, had the first Christmas tree in the White House. There are over 12,000 cut-your-own Christmas tree farms in the U.S. (Yay, Caywood Christmas Tree Farm). The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in NYC is a Norway Spruce and is between 70-100 feet high! The Balsam fir is the most fragrant of all the evergreens. In Germany, Poland, and Ukraine finding a spider or a spider web in your Christmas tree is good luck. The trending color this year for Christmas decorations is pink. And finally, white lights are more popular than colored! (google.com)
P.S. I can write comments again! Lol. I disputed the ban, and I must have won!
Here’s what’s new outside:
We still have some live wreaths! We have two different sizes. The 22″ wreaths are priced at $16.99, and they are perfect for a grave.
The 28″ live wreaths have juniper berries and pine cones and are $29.99! So pretty!
Our plan is to get our Christmas decorations outside all done this weekend!
Here’s our inside update!
Our Elves on the Shelf have returned! Sydney has been anxiously awaiting their arrival at home and at Huck’s! They finally came yesterday morning. Snowflake is our elf at home, and Chippy is our elf at Huck’s! We also have some Elf on the Shelf candies at the register. These are only 15 cents each, and we would be happy to share them with you for your elf at home!

There are lots of pretty Christmas decorations and gifts!
Jim‘s mother, Jill, has been busy quilting an Ohio State lap quilt to sell at Huck’s. It is a log cabin pattern with the squares turned in different directions. This would make a great gift for the Buckeye fan! Just imagine the Buckeye fan in your life watching the bowl game over the holidays under this beautiful quilt. Check out the picture below! The price is $125.00.
Duffy’s Designs has delivered family sets of pajamas! We have sizes for women, men, and the kids! They have the cutest black and red Buffalo check pants and shirts to go with them. If you like the movie “Christmas Vacation”, then you will recognize the sayings on the front! Hop on board with the trend of family pajamas for Christmas Eve!
We are taking orders for party trays, pies, rolls, and cookie trays. Call us at 740-373-2484! This is one less thing you have to worry about this Christmas season!
Here comes the bride….no, Jim and I are not renewing our wedding vows in front of the deli case, but you can pick up a from-scratch wedding cake cupcake in both white and chocolate! Each one is $2.49 and worth every penny!
Cinnamon imperials finally came back in stock! These are on the shelf and ready for your enjoyment!
Huck’s has some delicious mixes for dips! Your holiday party can be over the top with a homemade dip, like cucumber dill, southwest, sun-dried tomato and basil, natural garlic and herb, and vegetable. Most require nothing more than sour cream and/or cream cheese, which can both be found in our cooler! And you can pick up fresh veggies in our produce area! Easy peasy!
