Announcement, October 30, 2012
When he realized his was ill, Ted worked with CardboardChristmas.com to establish this archive of his "Putz house" site, which will, hopefully, continue to inform, encourage, and bless other lovers of Christmas tradition for years to come. In the coming weeks, we will be making necessary adjustments (such as changing the contact information), but our primary goal is to keep the information on this site as useful and available as Ted always intended it to be.
In the meantime we appreciate Ted's diligence, his generousity, and his love of Christmas traditions. We also pray for those close to him who showed so much support in his last months.
If you need to contact us before we get everything switched over, please use the Cardboard Christmas contact page.
To paraphrase Dickens, Ted was a man who:
honored Christmas in his heart, and tried to keep it all the year.
I don't think there is a more fitting tribute than to follow his example.
