Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

Hallmark has cancelled their Mickey's Christmas Carol ornament series!

I am shocked by this move. From what I've heard they were always great sellers. What a shame too as they had so much potential. I was so looking forward tothe ghosts of Christmas past and future and Donald as Fred. At least I have the figures they released a few years ago on display.

The Ghost of Christmas Was isn't the only thing that is past, now.

I expected these to be big sellers, but the last couple years there have been a bunch on the shelves of our local Hallmark stores even when they were reduced 70%.

I wonder if the fact that Mickey's Christmas Carol isn't showing on network TV anymore makes a difference in its popularity.

I was watching a couple Siskel and Ebert clips on YouTube after Ebert died, and I was surprised to see that neither of them liked Mickey's Christmas Carol when it was released.

How can this be. I'd expect a Disny Christmas ornament to sell big whether it was shown on TV or not. Maybe we are looking at it through Christmas colored glasses though?

I didn't collect this range myself but I do feel sorry for those who did and invested money, only to not be able to complete the collection the way they intended. It's awful how some company's treat customers. I suppose it all comes down to money. It is a pity even if the product was not put on general release that some special order only system couldn't be used to allow those collecting to complete.

I don't believe Hallmark ever gives a projection as to the number of ornaments they'll release in a series. I also don't think there's much reason to feel cheated, unless you started collecting something like a 12 Days of Christmas series only to have them stop after 8 ornaments. With Mickey's Christmas Carol, I think they've run through a good number of the main characters, leaving out Willie the Giant and Pete, who are certainly lesser characters in the overall Disney pantheon.
