The Holidays In Middle Georgia

The holidays are upon us, and soon we'll deck the halls to their finest, rush about our errands, and hopefully be a little kinder to our fellow men and women.  Soon will come the Nutcracker Of Middle Georgia production, the Macon Christmas Parade, and all the rest.  While you're amidst the holiday rush, buy some extra canned goods for the less fortunate.  We like Loaves and Fishes, but there are plenty of worthy groups helping those in need.  It's not all iPhones and quad-copters and toys, but peace on Earth and a little charity of the heart.

In the meantime, to help get the Scrooges among you into the holiday spirit, check out this video of the Nutcracker of Middle Georgia from a few years ago.
