National Christmas Tree’s rich History

December 25, 2019

US Capitol Christmas Tree and Other Forerunners to the National (Community) Christmas Tree

US National Park ServiceWashington, D.C. – December 24th, 1913 was the first community Christmas celebration in Washington, D.C. On the East Plaza of the US Capitol on Christmas Eve, the Christmas tree and related pageantry occurred. It was meant as a celebration for all of Washington, rich and poor, young and old, although a special emphasis was placed on the children.1

The forty-five minute program, replete with angel figures in white robes, nativity tableaux, carols, and Boy Scouts waving American flags, was modeled largely on community celebrations in other cities.

Frazier Allen: Why Holiday Shopping Begins in Summer

April 30, 2017

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Big-box retailers increasingly push consumers to forget the date on the calendar and purchase back-to-school items, pumpkins and Christmas trees in the same shopping trip. Known as “Christmas Creep,” this early arrival of the holidays is a tactic retailers commonly employ in their race against time toward a profitable holiday season.

As much as 30 percent of a store’s annual sales can come during the holiday season, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF), the largest retail industry trade association. Stocking holiday merchandise sooner gives retailers a jump on the competition and extends the amount of time consumers have to buy, for good reason.
