Man, the holiday season is coming in HOT! We’re just getting started, and we already feel like we’re behind. While we keep reminding ourselves that we haven’t even made it to Thanksgiving yet, it sure feels like the snowball has already started to roll downhill. Is it because we celebrate Halloween for an entire month and then, BAM, it’s time for Thanksgiving? All we know is that Christmas will be here before we know it. Until then, at least we have that leftover Halloween candy to help us destress.

The holiday issue of MeSee is always a fun one to put together. Plus, we get to work on our own holiday shopping lists at the same time. Inside, you’ll find awesome ideas from some of our exceptional local businesses. Soaps, spa treatments, art, and travel – it doesn’t need to be the holidays to appreciate everything our holiday feature has to offer. We also had a chance to check out several local events that will surely put you in the Christmas spirit. Longwood Gardens and Kozier Christmas Village are places your kids are sure to enjoy.
