Topic: Christmas Tree
Nashville, TN – This year, more than ever, families are likely eager to bring some holiday cheer to their lives. This could mean shopping (and doing so early) for a real Christmas tree.
However, nothing will make you say “bah humbug” faster than losing the tree you just bought on the drive home and creating hazardous situations for other drivers.
Clarksville, TN – Beginning Thursday, December 26th, 2019, the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department’s Forestry Division, the Clarksville Tree Board, and the Clarksville Department of Electricity (CDE) will offer Clarksville residents fresh-cut Christmas tree recycling at Heritage Park.
Residents can drop off their undecorated, unbagged, fresh-cut Christmas trees during park hours, dawn until dusk, through Sunday, January 12th. Trees can be left in the designated taped off area of Heritage Park’s soccer parking area.
US Capitol Christmas Tree and Other Forerunners to the National (Community) Christmas Tree
Washington, D.C. – The first community Christmas celebration in Washington, D.C. was on December 24th, 1913. The Christmas tree and related pageantry occurred on the East Plaza of the US Capitol on Christmas Eve. 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.
Nashville, TN – With the first day of winter (December 21st) less than two weeks away, the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office, the Nashville Fire Department, and the National Fire Sprinkler Association are urging Tennesseans to remember fire safety this winter to help reduce home fires.
Representatives from all three groups gathered at the Nashville Fire Department Training Academy in Nashville to demonstrate the dangers of a Christmas tree when not properly maintained and the benefits of a working home fire sprinkler system.
Knoxville, TN – AAA reports that on average nearly 30 million Americans decorate their homes with live Christmas trees, during the holiday season.
Picking the perfect tree is the fun part, but the process of bringing it home can be dangerous, if not done properly.
Clarksville, TN – A beautiful Christmas Tree has been raised in the lobby of City Hall to honor Gold Star families in the Clarksville community, and two Gold Star wreaths have been placed on the Eternal Flame monument in nearby Public Square.
Washington, D.C. – Christmas came early in Washington Monday, November 25th, 2019, as First Lady Melania Trump kicked off this season’s festivities by receiving the official White House Christmas tree.
Arriving by horse-drawn carriage near the front steps of the White House, the more than 5-meter-tall Douglas Fir will stand tall in the Blue Room, where it will serve as the centerpiece for the White House’s Christmas decorations this December.
Clarksville, TN – Bikers spend hundreds and THOUSANDS of dollars making sure they’re seen AND heard. We realize that it’s important to “stand tall” in traffic because, well, motorists are just TOO DAMNED DISTRACTED!. It’s a problem that I think is getting worse with no prospects of getting better.
Now, I hate to be so pessimistic, but I’ve put a lot of miles on the road over these last three and a half years, and I see a LOT of strange stuff going on behind the wheel of a car. It’s frustrating and damn right criminal!
I’ve taken all of the safety courses, I’ve bought all of the gear, and I’m as responsible as it gets, so I’ve done my part.
Clarksville, TN – Well, we’ve reached another Christmas holiday together and I just wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
It seems like only yesterday when we were all staring at the Christmas tree and counting our blessings last year, but how quickly time flies, and once again we’re grateful to be here, and thankful for family and friends.
I never expected to make so many new friends through this blog and all while traveling on the back of a motorcycle. I’ve heard some incredible stories, and learned some valuable lessons from all of you and I thank you!
