Keep your poinsettia beautiful after holidays
| Kids tell how Santa travels I around the world in one night
By KEVIN TANKERSLEY
WACO, Texas — We’ve all heard the story about how Santa Claus travels around the world on Chnstmas Eve, distributing toys to all the children But how does he do it? That’s an awfully long trip to make in one night, a huge number of boys and girls lo visit. Can it actually be done?
By golly, it can. g “I think Santa gets around the J? world in one night because he has a y jet engine in his sleigh Also he has J* parachutes on his presents,” said Peter McLeod, a second grader at Midway’s South Bosque Elementary School.
Peter and his second-grade classmates offered their opinions as to how Santa makes his annual rounds
help on his mission as well, claim a couple of children
fie can ‘‘turn a second into a year and a minute into a century,” said Benjamin Burns, while Stephen Lcinfclder believes, “Santa makes time stop and then he makes it go.” Carroll Crowder has a very practical answer as to how Santa makes his appointed rounds
‘‘Kris (Knngle) stops time, then he trav els half of the world, restarts time and travels the other half. You see, he can really only travel half the world in one night ”
Poinsettias can remain beautiful far beyond the holiday season if the plant is carefully chosen and cared for. From Ellison’s Greenhouses, here are some tips to keep rn mind:
• Choose a plant with small, tightly clustered yellow buds in the center.
• Look for crisp bright, undamaged foliage
• Avoid plants displayed in drafty areas.
• At home, water the plant when dry, discard excess water in the saucer. ■
• Place in room with enough bright, natural light to read a newspaper.
• Keep out of Jrafts and away from appliances and radiators. Do not put plant on the television set.
• After a few weeks, fertilize with ordinary house plant fertilizer.
Make it bloom again
You can make that festive holiday spirit last all year — coaxing your poinsettia to bloom again is a fun project when you tie it in with
holidays on your calendar year round.
Christmas — Select plants with tightly clustered, yellow buds.
New Year’s — Use an all purpose house-plant fertilizer.
Valentine’s Day — Do nothing unless your plant has become long and leggy. Then prune.
St. Patrick’s Day — Remove faded and dried parts of the plant.
Memorial Day — Plant should be approaching three feet. Trim off two or three inches of branches to promote side branching.
Fourth of July — Trim plant again. Make sure it has full sunlight..
Labor Day — Plant may have grown to five feet or more.
First Day of Autumn — Starting on or near Sept. 21, give plant 13 hours of uninterrupted darkness and 11 hours of bright light each day. Keep night temperature at the low 70s.
Thanksgiving — Discontinue day/night treatment. Put plant in a sunny area. Reduce water.

The ideas mostly broke down into
• Santa's time management skills, the I speed of reindeer and magic And it J helps if he doesn’t need to stop at ? every house
I “Santa can only go to houses of
• children who have been good all year,
; and just skips houses of children who
have been bad all year,” believes ' Amy Koester
Ashley Davis agrees:
“Santa always has a list so he '.won’t go to the wrong houses whose •‘child or children have been bad He has a good list for a good child or children .”
Cathenne Rich and Destini Stead
• put their faith in the magic argument J- “Santa Claus is so magic he can ; make Christmas Eve long,” said '.'Catherine, while Destini added.
Santa goes to all the houses on one night because he’s magic ”
J “Everyone knows he has magic reindeer,” says Bryce Lindley. 'C‘When he says, ‘Go’ in Texas, .they’re ahead) in New York ”
Kaysea Hoopman is one of several lyoungsters who said the key to 'Santa’s success each year is the I swiftness of his hoofed helpers, i ‘‘The reindeer pull his sled and the 'reindeer go fast as lightning,” she said “He makes the reindeer slow down at every house When there are no houses, he makes the reindeer go the speed of lightning ’ ’
Joshua Martinez echoed those thoughts: “His reindeer are very, very powerful and he might go 203 miles per hour or 2,003.”
Joshua, who recently moved to Waco from Albuquerque, N M , said the jolly man likes the city of Santa Fe
Santa can play with the clock to
