The holiday season is upon us. Traffic gets a little heavier, lines at stores get longer and tempers can flare as the season nears.
It doesn't have to be that way.
With everything happening in the world and in our own back yard, we should be reflective and think about what makes the holidays such a special time.
Take some time from your hectic schedules — and even from all the holiday shopping — and notice what the Valley has to help people enjoy the holidays.
There are a number of holiday programs and presentations put on by local theater groups and schools that are worth taking the time to go see. In today's world, when it can be difficult to find the time to spend together, gathering the family and some friends to see a local holiday presentation is worth the effort.
