We’re all lit up thinking about the holidays this year. Each September when we prepare the Christmas calendar and help local merchants pick their gift guide items, we start humming “Jingle Bell Rock” and lighting red candles even while we’re wearing short sleeves and open-toed shoes.

This magazine will kick off your own Christmas spirit this year. You’ll read about Thurl Bailey’s Christmas traditions and what holiday chore has his name on it (think tree topper). You’ll find three recipes from locals that will have you inviting friends over for dinner. Our holiday section helps you decorate your home and find a new dress to wear to that annual company party. We’ll even help you plan the traditional “lights ride” that the kids look forward to each year.

We know you’ll enjoy this last magazine in 2006, and we’ll see you at your mailbox again in January.

Happy holidays!
