Evergreen tree sampleOnce fall arrives, so does the barrage of advertisements for fabulous shopping adventures; it’s the holiday buying season. Traditional mail is full of catalogs, our email boxes are stuffed with electronic coupons that we may or may not use, and commercials on TV are even more plentiful and louder. Department stores have had their holiday decorations up for at least a month as we all know. Of course, not everything is pure commercialism; this is also the time when evergreen trees begin to come into prominence.
