Now is the time to be creative
The Christmas holiday is just a wonderful time of the year for most, however some are less fortunate and this time of year brings stress.
Going back to old-time traditions is not only is fun and fulfilling, but it can also save some hard-earned cash. Perhaps using a skill you have to make a gift instead of purchasing it, or maybe putting fruit into stockings for your little ones to snack on while waiting to open their presents — both are good ideas. Making something as a gift is also very personal and thoughtful — and it also downplays the materialism that unfortunately has increasingly been associated with Christmas.
Going back to the simpler way not only relieves stress and tends to have more meaning, but it also just seems like the right thing for us to do.
Holiday activities in the hills
Don’t miss your chance to hear Christian country recording artist Jay Witham in concert Dec. 16 at the Thurman Baptist Church. Witham will be performing at 12:45 p.m. and has pastored churches throughout New England and the Northeast since 1975.
The church members will be going out Christmas caroling on Dec. 22 at 6 p.m. and afterwards will be partaking of refreshments at Myrtle Buyce’s home. All are welcome.
Pastor Nathan and Amber Herrmann will be hosting a New Year’s Eve party at their home on Dec. 31 at 6 p.m. and they invite the public to attend any of these events.
