In some parts of the world, the snow is falling and putting us all in the Holiday spirit. Thanks to Instagram, those of you who don’t get the white stuff can still revel in the beauty of winter. The sounds, smells and delights of the Holidays are at every corner. How are sales so far? For many, it comes in a rush and for some it’s a steady flow throughout the month. All the same, our goal is to keep it Alive & Well on our newsfeeds. There’s something about Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s that brings JOY to everyone’s hearts.
