Texans spend big for the holidays - Hays Free Press
Washington D.C finance group Wallethub.
According to the study, there are six Texas cities in the top 20 for Holiday spending, with consumers racking up an average budget of around $2,000.
Wallethub analyzed over 500 cities across the nation for the report.
Here in Hays County, the San Marcos Premium Outlets and Tanger Outlets have consistently accumulated over $1 million in sales tax revenue in the month of December alone, according to reports obtained by the City of San Marcos from 2016 to the present.
"(Texas) ranked so high because of the large holiday budget potentially available for each household, which is over $2,000," said Jill Gonzalez, an analyst at Wallethub. "This means the consumers in Texas are, in general, in a comfortable financial position, which allows them to engage in holiday spending without too much stress or fear of going over the budget."
According to the National Retail Federation, Americans are expected to spend around $1,000 during the Holiday season, which is up four percent from 2017.
But while many cities in Texas can afford to splurge during the season of giving, there are many cities across the country that struggle in this department.

Mum dreams: Chico florist paying 'mum-ories' forward
Burgess routinely goes to seminars to learn about the latest trends.
Just like the football game that accompanies them, mums are a big deal in Texas.
“I have people that come from other states and ask, ‘what is this mum stuff?'” she said. “It’s a southern thing, a Texas thing I guess.”
Mum culture is real, and it varies by region in Texas and Wise County.
Burgess said in Chico, students prefer their mums short and sweet. In Bridgeport and Decatur, the style is long and robust.
“It really changes by the city,” she said. “In Bridgeport and Decatur, they hit the ground.”
Burgess was a teacher at Chico High School for 41 years and taught floral arrangements.
“I’ve always picked wildflowers since I was a little girl,” she said. “And I always dreamed of becoming a florist one day.”
When the florist in Chico at the time was selling her business, Burgess received a call. Her childhood dream became a reality.
She took over the shop with her daughter and began working with flowers and mums full time, making the transition fluid from nourishing students to nourishing flowers.
While she’s still the only florist based in Chico, she’s seen former students become her competition.
“I have some former students making their own mums at home,” she said. “It’s nice to see them use what I taught them, but, they’re my competition.”
But Burgess said it’s not about the money. In Chico she often finds a way to make things work for students who may not be able to afford a mum.
“If a kid walks in and doesn’t have much money, I’m going to get them a mum,” she said. “I do it for cheap. They need a mum.”

Horticulture expert brings floral design class to ASU
Kansas State University and her doctorate in horticulture from Texas A&M University. She also taught classes in floral design at both universities.
Anderson will teach a topic course called Wellness in Floral Art for the 2019 spring semester at ASU. The class will focus on how flowers relieve stress and affect the senses.
"It's biophilia, so we're being connected back to nature, which is where we come from," Anderson said. "Working with plants is a therapy, so not only is it a therapy for me to educate others on floral design as an art form and a stress reliever, (but) it's also awesome to see other people benefit from it."
While 90 universities in the U.S. offer bachelor's degrees in horticulture, only two universities offer degrees in floral design according to The Bachelor's Portal. As a result, aspiring floral designers often select horticulture as a major.
However, Anderson said an arts background is more valuable for entering the floral design field and modified her horticulture research accordingly.
"When I was managing studios in San Diego and Los Angeles, the owners of the studios kept asking me to find florists that had an art background, not a plant science or horticulture background," Anderson said. "That's when I got the idea that we need (to) advocate floral design as an art form in order to have a more educated work force."
Anderson also has her own business, The Flori.Culture, in which she teaches floral art classes and creates arrangements for clients. She said she has created arrangements for events hosted by large companies including Cisco and Walgreens.
On the website, Anderson runs a blog called The Chlorophyll Chronicle where she discusses "flowers. food. fashion." She also has a YouTube channel, The Flori.Culture, where she shows off arrangements and gives tutorials on how to make them.

As you know, amazing green plants have the capability of carrying out photosynthesis, the process of making their own food by collecting the sun's energy and magically producing glucose in a fairly complicated chemical reaction. But once in a while, you come across a plant that has OTHER fascinating "super powers."
