We Wish You Many 'Merries'
December 1, 2022
There really are no words to express all the facets of this season's joy. Of course the birth of Christ is truly the "reason for the season", and many of us treasure that joy above all others. However, the celebration of that original event has evolved into beautiful traditions that even the non-religious can enjoy.
One we feature each year is the cutting of your own Christmas tree; it makes a wonderful and memorable time that family will remember for years to come. Another of our favorites is the lighted boat parades that sparkle the good news of Christmas.
And, gift giving -- another legacy of the original Christmas story -- brings special joy to both the giver and the receiver; John and Margie Anderson present some excellent shopping ideas to delight outdoor folk in your life.
So, whether you are celebrating the birth of the Christ Child in church or simply continuing traditions that have come from that magical moment in history, we wish you beauty and happiness throughout this month and into the New Year. Merry Christmas!
