My opening comments are all leading to the opportunity parents have right now to make this a very special Christmas for their children.

How Early Does Your Family Get Up on Christmas Morning? [Poll]

Christmas morning is the one morning of the year that kids don't mind getting up early. Try to get them up at 6 a.m. on any other day of the year and you'll get wailing and gnashing of teeth. On Christmas morning, they're up at 5...at the latest.

When Should You Put Up Your Christmas Tree? [Poll]

This is kind of weird, I admit it, but I was actually thinking about putting up my Christmas tree before Halloween. I didn't put the tree up, but I was thinking about it.

Jonathan Schulte were recent guests of the Quincy Exchange Club.  According to Mr. Lindsey, a retired USMC veteran, the Toys for Tots program got its start in Los Angeles in 1947 when a Marine Corps Major’s wife made a Raggedy Ann Doll and she asked her husband to give it to someone but there wasn’t anyone to give it to. From that came the birth of the program which established a Toys for Tots Foundation in 1948.
