I love this time of year—twinkling lights, happy holiday music and friendly smiles greet you everywhere you go. And the Christmas season brings out charitibility like no other time of year. Washington Irving once said, “Christmas is a season for kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.” What a lovely sentiment.

Comedian Bob Hope phrased it a little differently, “If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.”

Be sure to take advantage of the many opportunities to pitch in and give back this week. There are several events that will make it easy, and several more that are just plain fun.  Here are some of the great happenings in and around Bellingham Dec. 15—17.
