It is tough to believe but Christmas is just around the corner. As you begin shopping for and preparing your Thanksgiving meal, Christmas is next on the list.
To celebrate this holiday season, we have two contests: our Deck the Halls contest and the Thankful Giving contest. We had great participation in both of these last year and look forward to more great entries this year.
This year has flown by, just like many of the others. It has been filled with ups and downs, but I have found focusing on the good makes the bad not seem as bad. The Thankful Giving contest is a good reminder of that: When you look around your community, what organizations do you see making a difference and being part of the change? Show them some appreciation by nominating them and let us thank them with a $500 donation.
Deck the Halls is another contest that will move us all into the Christmas spirit, even if we are having trouble getting there this year. Maybe you are the type of person that decorates for Christmas before Thanksgiving, maybe you wait until the day after your Thanksgiving meal, or maybe you believe in not putting up a single thing until the first of December. Maybe you choose not to decorate at all and to use your holiday time for other projects. Whatever you choose to do, I hope this season finds you in a joyful spirit.
For both holiday contests, watch our social media pages—Facebook, Twitter and Instagram—to see who wins.
