Now that the turkey is picked clean to the bone and the store shelves are bare. . . it's time to put up the Christmas tree and hang those stockings! There is no shortage of festivities when it comes to Montgomery County. Not only is there a new event, bazaar or parade around every corner, most events are free for the family. I will try my best to keep everyone updated on upcoming Holiday activities for the family that won't break the bank. I am guessing that the Baschwit household is not much different than other families in saying, every year we resign to cutting back the financial hit to the old wallet and try to make more of an effort to remember the “reason for the season”. Spending time with one another and enjoying each others company, recalling the year that has gone by. Toasting to our loved ones that we have lost and appreciating those who are with us. I'm sure we're not the only ones who want to give our children and grandchildren a grand gesture and shower them with gifts in abundance that darn near put us in debt yearly. So this year, I hope we can all take a breath and enjoy the season. That we can be grateful for time together and the birth of our Lord and Savior. That maybe this will be the year of awakening and gratitude and not a season of stress.
