Warm weather means brighter Christmas for all

Maybe it was the election. Or the need to move on after the election. Nah. Probably the warmer than usual fall weather we’ve experienced this year.

Whatever the reason, it’s good to see the number of houses and businesses already decorated for the holidays with Christmas lights.

Granted, it seemed a bit early to see the lights popping on, house by house, as Thanksgiving approached. But now that the national day of thanks has passed we should all be good to go. It’s time to light up Minot for Christmas.

We are especially happy to see downtown in such a festive mood given all that has transpired on Main Street these passed few years. Cruising a lit-up Main Street should be on everyone’s “to do” list this season.

And don’t forget to check out Oak Park, which is once again decked out for the holidays, thanks to members of Sertoma. Christmas in the Park began last night.

Thanks to all who are helping to make the season bright. You are making good memories for a generation that could sure use a few.
