I've done all I could to make the entertainment listing complete and varied, so there should be something for everyone.

Home For The Holidays

There's no place like home for the holidays - especially when it comes to shopping!

Since 2010, local businesses have benefited from Small Business Saturday, a "holiday" held the Saturday after Thanksgiving (and sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday).

In our area, communities are celebrating the diversity and uniqueness of their locally-owned brick-and-mortar stores.

On Saturday, Dec. 2, Port Clinton's Community Christmas Celebration features activities and specials at downtown businesses, plus visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, in the afternoon. The finale is a lighted Christmas parade and the lighting of the community tree.

Thursday, Dec. 7 is the evening to explore local shops in both Sandusky and Vermilion. Some downtown Sandusky businesses will participate in a "cookie walk," which runs from 4 to 8 p.m. Shopping and cookies - who could resist? The Light Up Vermilion event runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Shop owners in Marblehead will host the "Village Lights" event on Saturday, Dec. 9.

Last year, I did a lot of my shopping at local stores. My friends and co-workers loved the handmade Christmas ornaments I gave them. As much as I liked that part of the experience, I enjoyed the conversations with the people I saw in the stores even more.

I made memories that can't be matched by online shopping alone in my home.
