HOLIDAY FACTS (continued): • “Jingle Bells” was used as a part of a practical joke played by Gemini 6 astronauts Wally Schirra and Tom Stafford during their December, 1965 spaceflight. They radioed back to Mission Control that they had sighted some type of flying object that looked “like a satellite…a command module and eight smaller modules in front” with a pilot “wearing a red suit.” This was followed up by their rendition of “Jingle Bells,” accompanied by a harmonica and sleigh bells they had smuggled aboard the craft. That Hohner’s harmonica and those bells can be seen at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, displayed as the first musical instruments played in space. • A 34-year-old copyrighter working for the department store chain Montgomery Ward in 1939 was the creator of one of the season’s most beloved characters, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Robert May was given the assignment of coming up with a story for a holiday promotional booklet for distribution to customers to replace the coloring books they had circulated in previous years. May, who had been teased as a child for his shyness and short stature, used the same theme for his red-nosed reindeer, who was made fun of for being different. Montgomery Ward sold nearly 2.5 million copies that year. When they reissued it in 1946, sales were 3.5 million copies. Unfortunately, be-cause May was an employee of the store, they owned the copyright, and it was several years before May convinced them to allow him the rights. In 1949, May’s brother-in-law Johnny Marks penned one of the most loved holiday tunes of all time, based on the story. Cowboy singer Gene Autry recorded the song and sold over two million copies the first year.

Starting Over

HOLIDAY FACTS (continued): • There are about 21,000 Christmas tree growers in the U.S. Every year, about 35 million trees are sold. More Christmas trees are harvested in Oregon than in any other state. • The singer’s true love in the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” gave her 22 turtledoves over the course of those days. What she received was a member of the pigeon family, native to northern Europe. The bird is about 11 inches long with a reddish-brown body, blue-gray head, and white-tipped tail. It spends its winters in northern Africa. • The word “Hanukkah” comes from the Hebrew, meaning “to dedicate.” This eight-day festival commemorates the Jews’ securing and rededication of their Holy Temple during the second century’s Maccabean Revolt. • Although President Franklin Pierce was responsible for the first decorated Christmas tree in the White House in 1856, it didn’t become a continuing tradition until 1889 under the leadership of Benjamin Harrison. The Pierce Family gathered around the candlelit tree in what is now known as the Blue Room. Electric lights on the White House tree made their debut in 1895, hung by Grover Cleveland’s wife Frances. In 1961, Jacqueline Kennedy selected a theme for the White House tree, a ritual that has continued to this day. Jackie chose The Nut-cracker for her motif, but the themes have been as different as the First Ladies themselves. Nancy Reagan opted for Mother Goose one year, while Rosalind Carter selected eggshell ornaments and painted milkweed pods handcrafted by disabled Americans. Hillary Clinton used decorations related to Santa’s workshop, and Laura Bush decided on a red, white, and blue theme for her final Christmas in the executive mansion. • Although we might think of mistletoe as a romantic item, it is actually a parasitic plant that attaches itself to a tree and literally sucks the life out of it. It takes all its nourishment from the host tree, reducing the tree’s growth and frequently killing it. It’s not all bad news, as some herbalists swear by its ability to treat circulatory and respiratory ailments. According to Scandinavian legend, the mistletoe is a plant of peace. In ancient times, enemies meeting by chance beneath the plant were obligated to lay down their arms and pledge a truce until the following day. It’s believed that this custom led to the current one of kissing under the mistletoe.

Sometimes, an excellent book is hidden behind a bad title. That’s the case with “Start Over, Finish Rich (10 Steps to Get You Back on Track in 2010).” Written by money guru David Bach (hence the pop title), “Start Over” covers the commonsense moneyhandling practices we all agree with but don’t always do. The book lays out an action plan for the new financial reality many are facing. Writes Bach: “The aftermath of a recession is the ideal environment in which to lay the foundation for a secure, financially independent future.” With that in mind, here are some highlights: • Finding your money. Your first step isn’t to try to get back the money you lost in stocks or real estate or your 401(k). Your first step is to determine where your money is now -- and where it goes. • Repair your credit and deal with credit-card debt. Bach’s rule of thumb: If you have debt, stop using your credit cards. Understand and fix your credit scores. • Rebuild your emergency savings using Bach’s plan. • Rebuild with real estate. If you have a mortgage, consider refinancing if you can find a fixed rate 30-year mortgage that’s at least one percentage point less than what you have now. If you want to buy, be sure to have at least six months of expenses put away first. • Rebuild your college fund, 25 ways to save $5,000, organize your finances using technology to automate your savings -- it’s all here, and more. It’s Bach’s personable writing style that puts this book ahead of similar ones. The stories in the book show that he clearly has his finger on the pulse of those who’ve suffered financial losses and wonder if they’ll ever recover. He scatters lots of links through the chapters in case you need more information or help. If you’ve had financial losses in this recession, take a look at “Start Over.” Consider making this the first book you read in the New Year. As Bach says, “Doing nothing is the worst choice you can make.” David Uffington regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Write to him in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to columnreply@gmail.com. (c) 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

• A leafy tree grown in Arabia and Somaliland, the Boswellia Thurifera, is the source for frankincense, one of the gifts brought to the Christ child. These unusual trees grow out of polished marble rocks. The juice from inside the trees hardens into a gum resin, which is used for incense and medicinal purposes. In ancient times frankincense was used in the ceremonial incense of the Jews, used on every Sabbath, and stored in a sacred chamber in Jerusalem’s House of God. The ancients used it to treat tumors, ulcers, vomiting, dysentery, fever, and leprosy. Today, it’s said that it can relieve bronchitis and laryngitis when steamed in a vaporizer.

• Go Green Tip: Here’s a little-practiced fact in the life of today’s fashion: Many clothing items can be repaired. Do it right away, though, so the item can go back into the usable clothing circulation. The longer it sits, the greater the odds of it being replaced instead, making the original, repairable item just another piece of clutter. • “Use the clothes-detergent cap (to measure detergent), then wash it in the very same load. The cap will stay nice and clean -- no liquid soap everywhere.” -- Mrs. B., via e-mail • “If you have a noisy bed after you purchased a new mattress and box springs (it never was noisy before), it might be your bed rails. Cover them with carpet. We nailed ours on all over, which was easy, and the noise stopped. Our box spring apparently was not made very well at the bottom. This really works.” -- C.F. in Indiana • “Save the zippered plastic bags that bedding and curtains come in to store or organize items. My young children often need a clean change of clothes when we are on the go. I pack complete extra outfits (including underwear and socks) for them in the small bags. They work perfectly. The bags are sturdy and reusable for years. I keep these packages tucked away in the car or in their school backpacks, and I send one to the sitter. I also keep one in the car filled with socks for those summer days when they are wearing sandals and we decide to go to an indoor play place.” -- A.S., via e-mail • If you receive a set of scented soaps for the holidays, you can get a longer use out of them as drawer scents before you use them as soap. Tuck each one into a cloth wrapper and stick it in a drawer. When the scent starts to wear out, use the soap. Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Alcohol Abuse…

Some of the results of studies on seniors have surprised me, but there’s a new one that’s a bit shocking. It concerns seniors and the use of alcohol. In the past there has been much research that indicates that as we age, we drink less alcohol. That makes sense, because there are a lot of reasons not to drink. Maybe we can’t mix alcohol with prescriptions, or maybe our doctor said we shouldn’t drink. Or maybe we just didn’t like the effects and feared falling. This new study, however, shows that there is a sub-group of seniors for whom alcohol use actually increases -- and that is those seniors who already have problems with drinking. Yes, there are fewer seniors who have problems with alcohol abuse when compared to other age groups. But seniors age 60 and older who have a dependence on alcohol drink a lot more than those who are younger (even those who are college-age). Here are the numbers: Seniors who are dependent on alcohol average more than 40 alcoholic drinks per week. Younger drinkers have 25-35 drinks in that same time period. Not only that, but seniors with alcohol problems tend to do more binge drinking. (They categorize a “binge” as four to five drinks per day for women and men.) Senior binge drinkers had approximately 19 binges per month, compared to 13 to 15 for the younger age groups. That’s a lot of alcohol. Have seniors developed a tolerance over the years, and therefore need to drink more to get the same results? The study suggests this might be the case. Still, that amount of alcohol is dangerous. If you have a problem with alcohol and want to quit, get help for it. Sudden alcohol withdrawal can cause life-threatening medical symptoms.
