Christmas Day is here. After weeks (and for some of you over-acheivers, months) of planning all the details, braving through long shopping lines and traffic, it's time to sit and enjoy a day with loved ones and great food.
And as you open your gifts, enjoy quality time with your loved ones, and endulge (and then endulge more, and more) on your holiday meal, try to take some time to think about those who are less fortunate and must go without a lot of these things this year. Christmas is just as much about them.
Merry Christmas, North Andover!
