It’s that festive time of the year again and it is snowing hard here in Burlington, Vermont. With five to eight inches of snow expected today and tomorrow, it looks like we have high hopes for a snowy Christmas!
Late December is one of my favorite times of the year. Winter Solstice has now passed, along with the shortest day of the year, and it’s time to get cozy and spend time with the people we love. The holidays make me feel warm and fuzzy inside – though it could be due to the whiskey in my hot cider – I attribute it mostly to the lights, decorations, music, and delicious food.
Keep in mind there are many people who are not so fortunate to have a warm place to sleep and presents under the tree. There are many ways to give back this holiday season by donating to one of the many charities and committees supporting in-need Vermonters in Burlington. Take a moment to review some of the ways you can help:
- COTS (Committee on Temporary Shelter)
- Camp Ta-Kum-Ta
- TSYF (Transitional Services For Youths And Families)
- Ronald McDonald House
And, because we love our furry friends so much:
Have a safe and Happy Holiday!
Me and Sweet Dee
