Christmas 2011

Post by Rowan » Tue September 20th, 2011, 5:21 pm

I don't wanna hear any groaning about the thought of Christmas in September. It'll be upon you in no time flat and you know it! :P So here's this lil thread for us history buffs for eweneek gift ideas to ask for and maybe even give to someone else.

I've been glancing through the Calendars.com website and discovered they have a
Stupid History desk calendar. Also known as page-a-day or peel off calendars.

There's also
This Day in History courtesy of the History Channel. I know plenty people don't like the History Channel so take the info as you will.

The Civil War calendar (seems there's a few of them if you don't like the one I've linked.

For those like me who have a passion for words as well as history, there is Word Origin 2012 as well as Forgotten English.

Historical Tweets looks funny.

I'm still trying to process all the Halloween stuff in the stores.

Here are some pictures from Stats in Pasadena. They've been around for decades, and always go all out for Christmas.

I remember it was close to the French Market...So that probably was it. There's another one in the same row as Cafe du Monde.
