There’s a bear in the Christmas Tree!

Everyone knows cats LOVE to climb the Christmas tree, but you’ll be the ONLY one on your block with BEARS in yours when you buy these at Ann’s!  Cute black bears wearing Santa hats or scarves can’t wait to go home with you for Christmas, and they come with lighted trees ready to plug in.  We’ll help you tuck one in the backseat of your SUV or pickup so you can bring a little Christmas Wildlife to your home!  (More unusual Christmas trees, here.)

Weeks before Christmas

Have you seen Ann’s Christmas windows?  We’re up and ready for the holiday.  Drop by and be sure to notice lines and scenes from your favorite Christmas story.    Why not come and start your shopping?  Coffee’s on and we have really nice Christmas music, too.  It’s Christmastime at Ann’s Fine Gifts!

Christmas in Provence, Texas

Christmas in Provence, France, is a rich affair centered around food and traditions such as 13 Desserts, served after Mass on Christmas Eve.  The table is laden with things like dried fruits, nuts, sweetmeats and nougats and fresh fruits.  It’s a feast, as you would expect.
