Letter From The Editor: December 2017/January 2018

Category: December 2017/January 2018 Issue

I love traditions. From the beginning of November through the end of the year, my family has a multitude of traditions that range from how the turkey is cooked, to what can be found in our stockings Christmas morning, and even what we eat New Year’s Day. Looking forward to enjoying these traditions with the people I love is as much a part of our celebration of the season as actually attending parties and opening presents. Perhaps my favorite holiday tradition is participating in the annual Christmas Eve candlelight service at my church. Watching the flickering lights fill the sanctuary as we sing “Silent Night” in unison makes me wonder what the shepherds must have experienced the night that Jesus was born in a little town called Bethlehem. 
 
If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift this year, our writers have some great tips for those hard to find people in your life. Whether your teen or tween is impossible to please or your child wants to participate in the shopping process, enjoy reading this month’s edition to help you be the hero Christmas morning. 
 
As another year comes to a close, we thank you for making Parents & Kids Northeast Mississippi a resource for your family throughout 2017 and we look forward to all that 2018 will hold. Enjoy celebrating the traditions that are special to your family or create some new ones to carry on for years to come. May your family be blessed this holiday season.  
 
Merry Christmas,

Jennie Bradford Curlee
