One of my pet peeves is seeing Christmas stuff for sale in mid October—so I wouldn’t push the holiday this early unless it was for a good cause. The Preston Hollow Elementary PTA is having its annual poinsettia sale now, which raises money for the school. This year’s sales will fund scholarships, special assemblies, and science workshops.

You can place your order online now through Nov. 17, or by emailing parent Beth Glispin. The flowers range $18 to $28 and are available in pink, red and white varieties. All orders can be picked up at the school Dec. 3.
