WE INSTALL & REPAIR

Family Owned and Operated Since 1952

KORY LOUKES BALLSTON LAKE, NY

399-3482

If you step back and try to be objective, the practice of installing a tree inside our home at this time of year seems a bit bizarre. How did all this get started; and when? The symbolism and use of trees as decorations at this time of year are far older than many of us suspect. It is known, for instance, that pre-Christian Romans displayed decorated evergreens (oak trees which are evergreen in that part of the world). They lit the tree with candles and often topped the tree with a sun symbol. The ancient Celts of the British Isles also ornamented oak trees with apples and candles to offer thanks to the sun during the solstice period. Many of us can still remember when the Christmas tree wasn’t put up until Christmas Eve. This tradition likely had its roots (no pun intended, well...maybe) in the English tradition of bringing home the Yule log on Christmas Eve. The Yule log was generally a large stump, often including the roots, and was decorated with mistletoe, holly and other greenery. The log was lighted with a bit of the previous year’s log (thus protecting the house from fire for the upcoming year) and needed to be kept burning for at least twelve hours to insure continued good fortune. With the advent of central heating, the appeal of the Yule log has been all but forgotten. The evergreen tree as the tree of choice for solstice celebrating appears to have its origins in the Christianizing of the Germanic tribes of Eastern Europe. Some of the earliest accounts tell of St. Boniface dedicating the fir tree to the Christ Child with the oath “You are the light of the world, a tree ever green” to counter the sacred oak of Odin in the eighth century. Other accounts credit Martin Luther as the first to bring home a cut evergreen tree and decorate it with candles that symbolize the stars in the sky over Bethlehem the night Christ was born. Hundreds of years passed until the tradition of decorating evergreen trees at Christmas became common. It wasn’t until 1841 when King Albert displayed a decorated evergreen tree in his palace that the tradition took hold in English speaking countries. Like the American people, American Holiday celebrations have become a melting pot of customs and traditions brought to our shores from the older cultures of our forefathers. The evergreen, ancient symbol of life ever lasting is still included as the bright focal point of a celebration of rebirth, light and life. Whatever the origins of the practice, I love the smell of a fresh Balsam Fir when I bring it inside. The trick is to keep the tree hydrated so the needles stay on and the tree stay fresh and fragrant. The first step is to get a fresh tree. When you’re out in the tree lot picking out your tree, bent the little branch tips to make sure they are supple, not brittle. With Thanksgiving as late as it is this year, all the firs should be in fine shape. Beware of spruce trees which are notorious for falling apart quickly once they’re cut and brought inside. Next, make sure to make a fresh cut on the base of the tree right before you bring it inside. The reason this is so important is because the tree has sucked air into the bottom-most cells of the trunk. Even if the tree is placed in water, it can’t absorb it because the first cells at the base are clogged with air. A fresh cut exposes fresh cells that can absorb water and sent it along to the cells above right out to the branches and needles. Most tree lots will offer to make this fresh cut for you. This is fine if you’re going to rush home and get the tree into water within and hour. If it will be longer than that, you might as well wait and make your own fresh cut on the tree at home. Make sure that your tree stand is clean before you put your tree into it. If your tree stand is like mine, it spends most of its time in the shed gathering dust. If you don’t clean this dust out, it will mix with the water the tree is absorbing and clog up those all important cells that you just exposed at the base of the truck when you made your fresh cut. When you place the tree into the stand, fill the stand up with very hot water. Hot water is absorbed more quickly than cold water so the tree will re-hydrate as quickly as possible. You don’t need to use hot water every time you add water to the stand; just the first time. Make sure that the tree stand always has water in it. If you let it run dry, the tree will suck air into the bottom cells again and it won’t be able to absorb water until another fresh cut is made. This isn’t likely to happen once the tree is decorated. Remember: Fresh Tree, Fresh Cut and Fresh Water. Thanks for the read.

A quick guide to gift-giving etiquette Deciding on and paying for holiday gifts can be a challenge under the best circumstances. But then there are the inevitable “sticky situations� that can leave even the most experienced gift-givers scratching their heads. In the hopes of dodging major gift gaffes this holiday season, here are eight tips for gracious giving and receiving. * Review your gift list each year to determine if any relationships have changed and require a shift in your gift-giving plan. * Don’t ask non-family members on your gift list what they would like. This not only spoils the surprise, but puts pressure on recipients to gauge how much you want to spend and requires them to get you something in return.

that gifts are given out of appreciation, not expectation. * Including a gift receipt is a good idea and avoids potentially awkward situations when an item doesn’t fit or doesn’t work. * Give holiday tips to those individuals whose service you count on throughout the year, such as hairstylists, babysitters, dog walkers, etc. An easy rule of thumb for holiday season tips is to double the usual tip. For household employees, give one week’s pay.

* Don’t feel obligated to match what others spend. Buying gifts based on what others spend is both unnecessary and can lead to excessive expenditures.

* If someone surprises you with a gift, the best bet is to respond honestly. Let the giver know that you are surprised, touched and appreciative as well as a bit embarrassed that you don’t have a gift in return. Then let it go and add his/her name to your gift list for the following year.

* For workplace gifts, adhere to the company’s policies and make sure

* Don’t arrive at holiday gatherings empty-handed. A small gift, bottle of wine or

contribution to the evening’s edibles is the right way to thank your hosts for their invitation. * Acknowledging gift givers is a must, but formal, written thank you cards are optional. While handwritten notes are always preferable and greatly appreciated, e-mails are increasingly acceptable -- especially for young people. * Regifting is now considered a (mostly) acceptable practice, as long as it’s done thoughtfully, tastefully and within the following guidelines: - The regifted item should not be homemade or made espe-

cially for you. - The item should be new, unused and in its original packaging, along with instructions. - Be sure to remove all previous wrapping and gift tags. - Don’t regift to friends or family members who have a reputation for returning things they don’t like. You don’t want to be asked for a gift receipt. - Make certain that the original giver and the new recipient will never cross paths.

Do You Have It In Your Heart To Help A Rescued Throwaway Cat Named Sophia! She was left to die, abandoned because she was getting older and would need some care. She showed up on someone’s back step and cried for help. The cat that came to be named Sophia was on her last legs from ill health and starvation. As a tropical storm from Hurricane Irene was about to hit the northeast, Sophia was saved and given shelter in a family’s garage. A local rescue group, Capital District Humane Association (CDHA), has provided vet care. But, Sophia needs a loving home. She is a sweet cat who loves to be petted and held. Her favorite thing is to snuggle in your lap and give you kisses. Please consider helping Sophia by adoption or a contribution to CDHA.

* Retirement: Pensions are largely a thing of the past, but companies that do provide pension plans should merit heavy consideration. But even if most applicants are unlikely to find a company with a pension plan, there is the issue of a 401(k) and whether a company will match an employee’s contributions. Companies will typically only match up to a certain percentage, but a company that does match employee contributions should be very appealing. * Vacation: Vacation time and how employees earn it is relatively standard, but some companies do offer better packages than others. In general, employees who have been with the company 1 to 3 years get two weeks of vacation time, while those who have been with a company for 4 to 10 years typically receive three weeks vacation time. However, not all companies adhere to this standard, and some might require employees to work as many as six years before earning a third week of vacation. Applicants must decide if salary or additional vacation time

* Medical insurance: Medical insurance varies greatly depending on the company. Larger companies might offer more affordable medical insurance, giving them a distinct advantage over smaller companies when applicants have a spouse and children to consider. * Holidays: Holidays are typically a minor consideration, but some applicants might prefer a job that guarantees they get all of the major holidays off, even if it means taking less in salary. Applicants who typically travel significant distances during the holidays might want a job that gives them an extra day, such as the day after Thanksgiving, rather than one that requires they use a vacation or personal day to travel during the holidays. * Tuition assistance: Some companies provide tuition assistance to employees who want to con-
