The holidays are here!

And so are holiday traditions, old and new. One of the most anticipated times of the year. Hustle and bustle, joyous memories, celebrating with family and friends…

It is the timeless classics that I love about the holidays. Like that one song that brings back memories or getting that perfect gift for someone special on your list. I love the holiday open houses and events this month. It’s a chance to connect when we’re usually so busy with what’s next on our list.

In this issue, we highlight some fantastic local organizations doing good in the community and beyond, set the tone for some holiday fashions and gifting, and some ideas for entertaining as well.

We are excited to feature celebrity mindfulness expert Prince “P.J.” Daniels, Jr in our last issue of the year as well as spotlight youngsters making a difference in the community.

After all, ‘tis the season to give and receive! We’d love to hear about your holiday memories and traditions. Share with us online.

It’s time to slow down and connect – here’s to traditions and making memories Del Mar!
