julieg@herald-mail.com "Christmas already?" If you haven't said or thought it, you've probably heard someone else say it when stores started putting out their Christmas displays during the summer. "You can't enjoy the holiday that's upcoming because they're so far ahead on holidays two or three down the road," said Linda Smith, 55, of Boonsboro. "Every year it seems to get earlier and earlier and earlier. It ruins it. " Smith was recently found browsing a Christmas display in a local store because, she said, she was afraid the store would no longer have what she wanted if she waited until the traditional Christmas shopping season.

After years of collecting soft drink can tabs, the girls from Brownie Troop 733 and Cadette Troop 652 finally got to see just how those tabs are put to good use. Girl Scouts from both troops collected more than 60 pounds of tabs over the last several years. On Dec. 9, the girls and their families took a trip to the Ronald McDonald House in Hershey, Pa., to drop off their tabs. While there, they received a detailed tour of the Ronald McDonald House and visited Hersheypark to see the Christmas decorations.

The event has become an annual tradition. Rose Hill Cemetery has sponsored its event for 11 years now in conjunction with the city.

“I have to agree 100 percent with the Washington County caller, about the 3-month-old puppy being shot. It seemed a little hard to believe, that a 3-month-old puppy would be vicious.” - Smithsburg “Suggestion for next Christmas: You have had butterflies and hot air balloons in downtown Hagerstown. Why not have some decorations made to hang from the light poles, like we had years ago? This could be done in the same manner as the butterflies and balloons. It sure would beat the advertising signs hung on the poles now. While I'm at it, why not add some color lights instead of all white lights?

Editor's note: This column originally was published in 2008. Each year as I make my way through torn wrapping paper, trying not to step on little pieces of toys that are being assembled, the same thought comes to mind. Now what? We've been preparing for this day for months, and it's over all too quickly. Is it possible to capture the joy of anticipation and savor it all year long? It's hard to imagine keeping the Christmas spirit going, especially because energy levels and bank accounts need some time to recover.

It was a busy day for local shopping centers Monday as shoppers hit the stores to redeem Christmas gift cards, exchange items and take advantage of after-Christmas clearance sales. At Valley Mall, crowds gathered around discounted Christmas decorations and 50-percent-off 2012 calendars; moms waited as their preteen daughters tried on clothes; and men carried shopping bags for bargain-hunting wives.

You can only see a small slice of the room from a doorway at the end of a hall. Yet, in that narrow aperture, flashes of color attract the eye. There are deep blues, shimmering silvers, vibrant pinks and golds. At first glance, they are typical Christmas ornaments adorning a tall evergreen tree. But there is nothing typical about these glass balls. Each has had a centuries-long journey - from Europe across the Atlantic to immigrant homes, antique shops and now The Miller House Museum.

If there is such a thing as a collecting gene, the Kirsche family has it. Gretchen Kirsche collects angels. Her husband, Max, has an affinity for Santas, and 16-year-old daughter Cassie hasn't met a snowman she doesn't love. "Combined, we probably have over 100 pieces of themed figurines, ornaments, dolls and decorations," Gretchen Kirsche said. But they're always searching for one more, "especially if it's unique and one of a kind. " In most cases, she said, that means handmade.
