Greetings folks!! Hope you all had a relaxing Thanksgiving and enjoyed some time with family and friends. A very important event occurs between Thanksgiving and Christmas, often overlooked by most American. My birthday!! But not only is it just my day, I share this wonderful event with many other popular folks. Daryl Hannah, Julianne Moore and Ozzy Osbourne just to name a few. I have now OFFICIALLY worked at Holland’s Jewelers for half my life…..unbelieveable!! Growing old is a wonderful blessing especially when you are surrounded by people you love. Over the past 20 years at Holland’s Jewelers I have been blessed enough to help many couple with the selection of an engagement ring. Through the years these couples have made families of their own and now their children are coming to visit us at the jewelry store to get engagement rings for their sweetheart. Each day is really a gift from God, and the people that cross your path along the way are the real blessings in life. We at Holland’s wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and may you be blessed with many more.

Ginny and I have just settled in for a couple days of rest. We just want to thank you all for the love and support you have all given us this year. What a wild ride it has been!! In case you didn’t know, we suffered a break in just a couple days after Thanksgiving which left us stunned and in shock. But life goes on and we are still here. I’ve heard so many times in the last few weeks that it could have been worse and that is a definite truth!!! As I sit here thinking about our past year, I am so thankful for all our family/friends and all the blessings that God has given us. We are healthy and we are together and that is enough. Where ever you are and whoever you are with, be sure to be thankful for all the blessings you have been given.

This past weekend while walking through the mall, I heard this God awful scream straight from the pit of Hades. As we rounded the corner there was the source of the noise, a 6 or 7 year old little boy crawling away from Santa Clause like his life depended on it. That’s when the question came up from Hailey, “Why does Santa make kids cry?” That’s a great question. I told her that Santa probably told the kids that they were on the naughty list and that sent them into a fit of rage. It’s all I could come up with on the spot. So, if you were on Santa’s lap what would he tell you? Are you on the naughty or nice list. It’s not too late to make amends for 11 months of “iffy” behavior. I’m gonna tell you, from experience, what has saved my behind on may occasions, a little something from Holland’s Jewelers. This weekend is our annual Christmas open house where we will be open Friday night till 7 and Saturday till 4. They’ll be lots of awesome food, drinks and jewelry give-a-ways. This year you can enter to win a Chamilia bead bracelet, Southern Gates sterling silver ring, Fossil watch (ladies or men’s) or our Mystery gift. We’ll also be filling out wish list for that person in your life that can’t seem to pick out a gift without a little help. You know who you are!!! Can’t wait to see you all there!! I’ll leave you with a few pictures of kids and Santa, you could cut the tension with a knife.
I would like to introduce you to the winner of this years Christmas give away. Vincentia Vetterl is now the proud owner of a fab-u-lus Swiss blue Topaz necklace designed by Lorenzo. The pendant is made from Argentium silver (anti-tarnish) with 18 karat, yellow gold highlights. When we called to tell her the good news she could not believe it, and in less than 15 minutes Vincentia was back at the store to claim her prize. One of the coolest things about this necklace, Blue Topaz is her son’s birthstone.
Our 8th annual open house was so much fun. At last count we had around 400 folks stop by to eat, drink and register to win some prizes over the Friday and Saturday event.

Or with a purchase of $150 or more they are only $24.95. These pearls are awesome and make a great gift anyone on your list. Each hand knotted strand has a Sterling silver clasp and 5.5 to 6 mm pearls. We only have a few strands left so come by and check them out.
