Don't look now but the holidays are upon us. Thanksgiving is next week and it's a late one so can Christmas be far behind? NO! Some of us need some prompting to get into the spirit. You may find it in Hallmark Channel movies while others find it in Christmas music. A light dusting of snow can add to the mood. But locally, we've got an annual event that sets the pace for me. It's the Holiday Tree Festival, which benefits Akron Children's Hospital, now in it's 38th year. It's hard to not get into the spirit walking around the hundreds of meticulously decorated trees, wreaths, and miniatures all of which are for sale. There are also some raffle trees. The Holiday Tree Fest opens to the public this Saturday, November 23rd and stays open through next Sunday, December 1st. Admission is FREE! Thanks to some great volunteers, they'll also be open on Thanksgiving Day if you want to walk off the too much turkey and all the trimmings. I highly recommend it. Click here for more details.
