Dec 13: What Are The Meanings Behind Traditional Christmas Flowers & How YOU Can Get FREE Trees in Seattle

Cliff was a little bit worried when he realized that he didn't know whether or not Chrysanthemums were actually a traditional Christmas flower or not. Luckily, they actually are, in both German and Japanese cultures!

We also get the lowdown behind other Christmas flowers including poinsettias, holly, yew, mistletoe and Christmas cactus.

Everyone knows you can get a Christmas tree pretty easily this time of year, but what if you are looking for something a little more long term? Seattle has a program where residents can get up to four trees a year for free! It's a great idea because not only do you make your yard more green, but it also gives you a place to hang your Christmas lights! If you think it's a cool program, definitely check if your city does something similar (or maybe see if you can start something!)

The night jock and digital guy from Seattle’s Christmas Station, The New Warm 106.9, are soooo Xtra. Around here, it's always Christmas, and Heather & Cliff are there for it. From holiday scented deodorant to high tech festive décor, join them on the 25th of each month (and even more in December) all things Christmas!

Cliff LOVES Christmas (but isn't a fan of snow). So he moved to from Utah to Seattle to work at Warm 106.9, the best Christmas station on the planet and now co-hosts their Christmas podcast 'We're So Xmas'! When he's not watching A Christmas Story or listening to his favorite Christmas album (Barenaked...For the Holidays) he's probably podcasting about video games (which TBH, make great holiday gifts!)
