It seems as though every year there is a new trend for the tree...the Christmas tree that is. Two cute little flairs that are coming to mind are the Bah HumBUG and the Christmas Pickle. My mom just had to have a Christmas Pickle a few years ago and I couldn’t find anyone anywhere, so I sewed her one and had to stuff it with tissues! Crazy...I know!!! I actually bought her one later, but we still have the first little guy I made. He truly embodies the motto, “It’s the thought that counts.” However, I have been recently enlightened from my relatives when they came over for Thanksgiving that the new flair this year is the Christmas Spider! Again, crazy...I know! But, like with the other Christmas trends of the past, an explanation accompanies the flair which justifies its addition to the Christmas tree. Now you can be armed and ready for those who may be critical of a humbug, pickle, or spider in a Christmas tree.
