Anyone who’s not a Cardinals fan will look at the headline and think I have a misspelled word — but we obviously know better.
And while no Matt Holliday ornament pictures were sent in, there were ones of Willie McGee and Mark McGwire plus Chris Carpenter, David Freese and That Guy Who Used to Play First Base. So as you’re either finishing your last minute Christmas preparations with shopping and wrapping or cooking, enjoying the time with family and friends, or just counting down the hours until “A Christmas Story” starts tonight and the Fox Sport Midwest Christmas marathon begins tomorrow, here’s a look at some of the ways you are celebrating a Cardinals Christmas.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Christmas Holliday!
Kelly sent in this collage of her Cardinals collection — and the Cardinals snowman in the lower left is a popular ornament as several of us have it. And the World Series ring tree topper right above — perfect!
The Precious Moments ornament Kelly has is terrific, and Daniel sent a photo of it in as well — plus this one from his daughter’s Christmas tree.
Tara found a way to use her World Series ring in her holiday decor as well.
Tara also has a tribute to Mr. Freese.
Laura has this one of David also — one of our favorite 2011 moments.
As well as this one that of course I loved with another great 2011 World Series moment.
Laura shared many photos of her ornaments plus this, which just makes me miss Busch Stadium all the more.
This one from Stacy’s tree is simple and classic — just like the Cardinals.
Daniel sent along this one of That Guy Who Used to Play First Base, which he did still put on his tree this year. (Last year too?) Anyway, anyone else think his face looks like Rafael Furcal, or just me?
Back to simple and classic, here’s one from Laura.
And what could be more classic Cardinals than Jack Buck (also from Laura)?
Finally, while all the decorations are terrific and a great way to get in the Holliday spirit, nothing like seeing our real Cardinals themselves. So, courtesy of the Cardinals themselves, enjoy!
