The Amaryllis gets you into that Christmas spirit

When you think of December, do you also think of twinkling lights, a Christmas tree and all those good times with friends and family? During these warm and wonderful get-togethers, the Amaryllis adds that finishing touch to your holiday festivities.

A Christmas flower

So why is the Amaryllis a typical Christmas flower? First of all, its large flowers make any home look warm and inviting, but it’s also because the season for the Amaryllis begins in November and hits its peak around Christmas. This is why these Christmas flowers have always been so popular around and during the holidays. When you see an amaryllis, you automatically think of Christmas.

Parkview Baptist Church is sponsoring a program "Seniors Believe in Santa Too" to make Christmas brighter for some of our local seniors.

A tree will be set up at Pepperbelly's restaurant that will display ornaments with a "wish list" of each senior written on it. We encourage the community to choose one of the ornaments from the tree, and return the wrapped gift/gift bag along with the identifying ornament to Pepperbelly's by December 18th. The gifts will be distributed the week of Christmas along with a stocking of goodies provided by Parkview Baptist Church.
