Decorating the house, inside and out, baking, creating and gifting make our days bright. Send in your holiday ideas and photos. Member, Mary Lew Sponksi, shared a new tradition for the pandemic - In our family Christmas stockings filled with multiple small items [all of which are wrapped individually!] are the highlight.

On Christmas Day, we will gather on Zoom and everyone will open their Christmas Boxes together.
