The Winter issue is a nod to holiday and seashore traditions, and we think you’ll be tickled with tips on how to decorate naturally, the tale of how the Christmas tree came to be one of our most endearing Christmas traditions, and our annual holiday pictorial, It’s A Wonderful Life which is peppered with quotes from local celebs. Plus, Persnickety Chef works his holiday magic with an homage to the Germans and Scandinavians in a column he calls “Yule Be Home For Christmas.” Ho! Ho! Ho! And on the seaside end, you’ll be delighted by Lynn Martenstein’s take on Skee-Ball: Not Just Child’s Play. She traces her own love for the “sport” and it’s novel history.
