Christmas Eve in Syracuse

 Santa Says "Celebrate"

The Whistlestop was extra busy this Christmas. We have added a new design talent to our staff - Sharon is a welcome addition and it seems like she's been here forever. It seems like we have all been here forever. Christmas is a loooong holiday for floral designers.

Now Christmas Eve is finally here! All the poinsettias have been sold. There are just enough centerpieces for the last minute shoppers. And we are scrubbing the pine sap off our hands and preparing to depart to be with our families.

We will be closing at 2:00 pm today and will be closed the day after Christmas. The shop will reopen on Tuesday. But there is no break in the rush...we have three weddings on New Years weekend.

Thank you and Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus to all our customers and friends.
