Happy Holidays!

There’s something about little children that makes Christmas so sweet. Mrs. Claus loves them so much that she wrote “Christmas Fun for Your Little Darlings.” But Christmas isn’t just about children here at home, it’s also about children who live far away. Melody Howard writes about them in “Sending Love in a Shoebox.”

And yes, it’s also about holiday dinners and the side dishes that Annie Mayoza Holmes has loved since she was a child. Don’t miss “Essential Sides for Your Holiday Meal.”

Music is also a big part of the holidays. Check out our Calendar of Events for harmonious happenings, including the Arts Council’s Community Christmas Concert and Christmas music from the Madrigals.

In the meantime, catch up on news from the Paris-Henry County Youth Orchestra, who welcomed a new conductor this season.

Writer Karen Geary reminds us not to forget the Thanksgiving holiday. She’s gathered some thoughts from her friends and neighbors on thankfulness. John Watkins, our grateful gardener weighs in with his “thankful list,” which includes a few surprises. And Arthur Lodge explains why he grew up skipping Thanksgiving every year!

What are the holidays without a few tales from the past? Jill Routon Wilson shares some treasured history about her grandmother, Henry County icon Pearl Routon in a new children’s book, Mama Pearl and the Tennessee State Flower. And Larry Ray offers part two of his article on Colonel Caldwell in When Bullets Flew.

There are plenty more interesting reads; including holiday tips for diabetics, Ramay Winchester’s new muse, an interview with new Henry County Schools Superintendent J. Brian Norton, and a piece from Boykin Spaniel, Gauge Guinn, who’s a darn good writer for a dog. Enjoy the season and share the love,
