Jingle Downtown Holiday Stroll in Milford

If you can't get enough of holiday fairs, but wish they
could be all in one place, head on over to Milford, NH
on Saturday Dec. 5th where there will be ten -- count
'em - TEN holiday fairs in town, plus music, horse
drawn carriage rides, holiday shopping, and a special
appearance by one of the Budweiser Clydesdale
(between 4-6 PM).  This is quite a tradition in Milford --
in fact, this is its 101st year!  At 5 pm, join your friends
and neighbors on the Milford Oval for a community
caroling and holiday tree lighting, followed by a special performance of the
Souhegan Valley Chorus on the gazebo.There are a variety of fair locations and
hours.  For more information visit:
Jingle Downtown Holiday Stroll in Milford,
NH.  ~ Marcia

This Week's Stories:

Travel: On the Road with Bookstore Tourism
How many times have you gone to another town in New England, walked into an
independent bookstore that you've never visited before, and were overwhelmed
by how tremendously cool and unique it was?

Garden: Consider Cyclamen for the Holidays
If you want a different plant for holiday decorating, one that prefers cool
temperatures, consider the cyclamen.   The unusual shaped colorful blossoms are
held on reddish stalks above the variegated gray-green elliptical leaves.  Readily
available at most florist shops and greenhouses, it is one of the prettiest winter
potted plants...

Recipe: Christmas Crackers
A great alternative to sweet cookies this holiday season...

anywhere cards are for you, think again. They are only a smart buy if you
spend a lot of time on the road AND do a lot of web work. Otherwise, pay as
you go on access sites makes more sense.
