As busy as it is, it also ushers in a kinder, more family-oriented time. Our staff shares their favor- ite parts of the season, but visit us online and on Facebook to let us know your family's favorites, too. "I love lounging around surrounded by family in December and doing anything that that makes us laugh." — Terrie Goldstein, Publisher "I love making (and eating!) gingerbread. It's as hard as eggnog is to find outside of the holiday season - so I look forward to eating all I can find." — Felicia Hodges, Editor "My favorite part of December is going to Holiday in the Park at Six Flag Great Adven- ture with my fiance. We have the best time riding roller coaster in the snow, eating the best waffles ever and drinking hot cider by the giant electronic tree." — Brittany L. Morgan, Web Editor "My favorite part of December is our 'Polar Express Night'. We get in our jammies, grab some hot cocoa, our book on tape and drive around looking at Christmas lights listening to the book until the kids fall asleep." — Pamela Perry, Community Liaison "My favorite thing to do in December is traveling to western New York to spend the holidays with my family." — Pam Soscia, Traffic Manager "Each year since my oldest child was born I've gotten my boys a new orament. When we put them on the tree, it reminds me of all the beautiful moments we've shared throughout the years." — Christy Olivier, Media Advisor "My favorite thing to do in December is snuggling up in a blanket in front of the fireplace with my family and dreaming of warmer weather." — Veronica Ingram-Henry, Media Advisor "My favorite De- cember tradition is watching Christmas specials with the kids. The older I get, the more convincing I have to be to get them to do it. 'Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol' is an old school family favorite." — Matt Silverman, Media Advisor "My favorite thing to do in December is to put on a Christmas movie I like and bake sugar cookies." — Madison Beckman, Intern Happy Holidays!
