With less than one week away until the turkey gets carved, it’s hard not to notice that all holiday preparations are well underway. Holidays seem to be getting closer and closer together and it’s as if we should start saying “Merry Thanksgiving!” The music is changing as are the store displays. Even some homes are starting to deck the halls! No matter your traditions, it’s a nice time of year for everything and everyone to come together and celebrate the moments that will be remembered for a lifetime.
We’re fortunate to live in an area where there are many ways to get in the spirit! Believe it or not, some holiday happenings begin as early tomorrow, when our region’s famous Festival of the Trees begins right here in Methuen, MA. There are craft fairs to go to, trees to be decorated, parades to enjoy and even some special musical performances that surely will lift your mood. No matter your preference, we hope you take time to enjoy those dear to you. Below are two links that will help you find what’s most important to you:
This time of year is so busy for so many. While it is fun for all, it also can be stressful. It’s easy to forget what it is all about. Take some time to take it all in and cherish what’s important. It’s not always the material things that make life special, it’s being together that counts. While it seems early to say, happy holidays, there it is! Pick which one you like best and make your holiday happening memorable.

There are hikes to be taken. Pumpkins and apples abound! Take a train ride through the mountains or a gondola to the top to see the incredible beauty all around you. If you’re an athlete, there are many road races and competitions to squeeze in before the snow comes! Or, perhaps you’re a foodie! There are even Restaurant Weeks in many popular cities and towns. Last but not least, the holidays are just around the corner and already you could purchase tickets to hear some of the finest holiday concerts around!
