Small town Christmas

With Christmas Day a few minor details away from reality, now is the time to truly enjoy the season.

With Christmas Day a few minor details away from reality, now is the time to truly enjoy the season.

By the time you read this, the lists should be tackled, the baking all finished and all the stresses leading up to December 25 tucked away. Now you need to sit back and appreciate the gentle moments of the holiday season.

Whether it’s Christmas Eve mass, a special reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas with your wee ones or reconnecting with out-of-town family and friends in front of the fireplace, we hope the next couple of days are filled with wonderful holiday moments.

In this community we are clearly blessed with gifts beyond what lies underneath the spruce limbs in your living room. We look out for one another. Whether it’s through efforts like Santa’s Helpers, volunteering for a free community meal or helping your elderly neighbour shovel her walk, the 365-day comfort of small town life is all around us.

So from our Nelson Star offices in the downtown to all of your homes, may the next couple of days bring you much joy and happiness. Merry Christmas!
