Christmas in July: Shopping Scout knows that the holidays aren't for some time, but that doesn't stop our readers from requesting the following holiday items:
M.S. of Bethlehem is seeking Christmas Tea, which is usually available around the holidays, but would be enjoyable any time of the year.
Vicki of Emmaus is trying to find white hot chocolate mix, which is a nice change from other warm, winter drinks.
Maureen is looking for a Sesame Street Christmas Sing-Along compact disc, cassette tape or album. She wants to be able to share this music with her grandchildren.
Janetta of Bethlehem needs a knitting pattern for a Tigger Christmas stocking. This will be her only grandchild's first Christmas and this stocking will make the perfect gift.
Hibachi grill: Diane of Bath is looking for a hibachi grill. She has been to quite a few stores but to no avail. Diane said at some stores, ''the young sales people didn't even know what a hibachi was.''
