In my Monday Letter From the Editor, I wrote about my annual struggle to get into the holiday spirit.
My mission this year is to make each day "Merry & Bright."
Yes, that is a line from the classic Bing Crosby Christmas song, "White Christmas."
It also happens to be my favorite Christmas movie.
It's not really Christmas until I see Bing, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney make their way to that lodge in Vermont.
Sounds very "Vermonty," doesn't it.
Unfortunately, everyday life often intercedes.
What I do for a living does not help.
Yes, we deal with a lot of sad news.
But today we also will do something else.
We will endeavor to find Delaware County citizens taking part in #GivingTuesday.
After all that shopping madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, today is the day to give back.
There are hundreds of local organizations you can help with a donation.
I might suggest our very own Merry Christmas Fund, which benefits the Salvation Army and their work in Chester.
Whatever you do, I hope your #GivingTuesday is "Merry & Bright."
