CELEBRATE – As more of us are able to come together this holiday season, this year’s edition of Celebrate focuses on traditions, many of which we missed last year.
Below, you’ll find features on festive dishes from near and far, as well as some of the best locally made gifts to give and get.
If you’re still looking for ways to celebrate the season, we’ve got you covered with details on holiday events and shows such as Northeast Ballet Company’s “The Nutcracker.”
We wrap things up with a look at the past via holiday memories.
