The Christmas season is here, with its twinkling lights, cocoa by the fireplace . . . and trying to find the perfect gift. This Christmas season, forget the mall — do you really want to be in a crowd of people? — and do your shopping while supporting local businesses and enjoying a festive holiday experience at the same time! Christmas markets and craft sales are a fun and affordable way to get into the holiday mood and tick some “to-do’s” off your list.
