Experience the Feeling and Joy of Christmas

It seems like the holidays come and go so quickly, with so much to do, we often forget to take the time to enjoy the fun events that are out there this time of year.  As I write this, we have already missed out on a few events we usually catch.  We didn’t see The Trans Siberian Orchestra show this year.  I highly recommend this show.  This should be on your bucket list if you are a fan of Good ol’ Rock-n-Roll with great guitar playing and singing.  The special effects are out of this world!!!  The Christmas theme makes it a no-brainer must-see holiday event!

With that in mind, I am going to make a concerted effort to take the time to see some of the wonderful things out there this time of year.  Below is a small compilation of holiday events.

My wife, Beth, and I will again be choosing a few charities, this year, for donation.   The Galaxy theater in Gig Harbor has a wonderful idea of donating to kids that do not receive anything for Christmas.  They have a tree in the lobby with tags on it.  The tags have a boy or girl with their age and what they would like for Christmas.  You pick a tag, purchase the gift, and bring the tag and gift back to the theater.  We did this when we saw the Christmas movie “Last Christmas” a couple of weeks ago.  If you are able, please consider donating to those in need this holiday season.  No matter how big, or small, every bit counts.  Your generosity goes a long way to help folks in need and it feels good to help others.

From the Lind family to all of yours, Have a happy Holiday season!
