Even though most people put up their Christmas trees after Thanksgiving, Hallmark believes it’s never too early to shop for ornaments to hang on the tree. Every year in mid-July the greeting card giant releases their Keepsake Ornament Premiere. On October 5, a new set of 150 ornaments hit store shelves to remind you that it may be Halloween, you can’t forget about Christmas. This year they plan to introduce over 500 ornaments. 250 of those are already on store shelves. You’ll need a 2nd or 3rd tree just to show them all.
Nicole Reid, general manager for Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments, says “Every year, our artists create the most amazing ornaments that help people celebrate the special times in their year, and the special people in their lives.”
In the October release…
A Peanuts® interactive tree skirt that brings to life the famous A Charlie Brown Christmas film.
