Winter Wonderland

It was sixty-seven degrees as I drove home this evening, but we're in winterfest mode nonetheless.

The Lucky Strike tower on the American Tobacco Campus is aglow for the Holidays, and the 2nd Annual Triangle Christmas Tree Challenge is underway.

Downtown Durham is merry and bright. Come and see!

Click here for info on the Christmas Tree Challenge and check out the slide show from the Friday night tower lighting at American Tobacco.

The United Way of the Greater Triangle is participating in the competition, but they donated their fir to a needy family. It's been replaced with this Charlie Brown tree - bearing a single ornament and a wimpy string of lights - to make a point from the 2011 United Way Campaign...

Visit the United Way website. Consider an on-line Holiday support of 82 human services agencies and their 149 programs in the Triangle. Make 2012 merry and bright for someone else. It's the perfect gift!

...and here's how you can vote for the United Way's scrawny tree. They could win $5,000. Ready - Set - Text:
