A Season of Giving

December is a lovely month in and around Baltimore. Sure, occasionally we’re hit by snowstorms of apocalyptic proportions that shut down life for days, or weeks, on end, but that doesn’t happen very often. 

Usually, December is a month characterized by crisp evening air, a month made for strolling through neighborhoods in scarves and coats or sipping warm cider with friends around fire pits. Once in awhile, December brings enough snow for sledding and snowball fights, but more often than not it’s just a light flurry that blankets the ground long enough to be charming before it melts away. For some, December is a month of festivities marked by the hanging of stockings or the lighting of candles, but whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Pancha Ganapati, something else or nothing at all, December is a month to reflect upon—and be grateful for—friends, family and community. 

In the Towson area, December is also a month packed with plenty of fun activities and events. From the annual screening of “It’s a Wonderful Life” at the Senator to Haunnakah and Kwanzaa celebrations to The Night of 100 Elvises, there is something for everyone. 

From all of us here at Towson Lifestyle magazine, we hope your December is the best one yet. We hope you enjoy remembering fondly the year gone by while looking forward with hope to the new year ahead. 

And, as always, rest assured, we will continue to bring you articles of local interest that will keep you inspired, up to date and in the know.
