Dear Long Islander,
Thanksgiving & Hannukah have both come and gone, and December is well under way - it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here on Long Island, where locals and businesses are getting into the spirit of the season with festive lights, decorations, and celebrations. This weekend is supposed to be a cold one with a fair chance of snow, but don't let the cold scare you - there is still plenty of seasonal fun happening! From Holiday Craft Fairs, to meet & greet events with Santa, and of course the opening weekend of the GSSC's 10th Annual Holiday Light Show, there is plenty to do this weekend!
