On The Town: Merry Christmas to all!

Red and green and lights, cutout cookies, gingerbread houses, nutcrackers, and more add to the traditional scene. Christmas movies and television specials send messages of hope and good will. Generosity has overflowed in donations of toys, food, and clothing. For children and grown-ups, whether naughty or nice, events leading up to Christmas have been plentiful. Santa seemed to be everywhere and a few elves appeared too. CLICK ANY IMAGE TO VIEW FULL PHOTO, START SLIDE SHOW.
