The weekend after Thanksgiving I took my artificial Christmas tree out of the basement and carted it to school. Not that the tree is anything spectacular. Far from it. The branches are bent, the stem stands a little crooked and it's about half the size of a normal Christmas tree. Still, it's my firm belief that every classroom should be a tad festive at this time of year. My students firmly believe that we should have a more stately tree. They informed me that a larger one was available in storage at school.

"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.

By ROSE BENNETT GILBERT Creators Syndicate Q: My wife goes crazy with Christmas decorations every year. I don't get it because she has great taste in everything else, but Christmas turns into cutesy stuffed Santas and fake poinsettias everywhere. I always manage to tone down the outside lights - ours is not the neighborhood for blowup plastic snowmen. How can I get a message across without hurting her feelings - or her Mom's, the original overdecorator? A: Approach it with great care, like stockings hung by the chimney.

Regular customers at the City Farmers Market know Margaret Pheil for her homemade ornaments and crafts. This time of year, she works hard to keep up with the demand for her beaded satin ball and shaped ornaments. Her thumbs have the calluses to prove it. Pheil, 88, has been "going to market" for at least 30 years to the City Farmers Market at 25 W. Church St. in Hagerstown. Prior to that, she went with her mother, who used to sell vegetables and Christmas wreaths. Now, Pheil loads up her 1989 Ford station wagon on Saturdays for the weekly trip to town.
