The time is fast approaching when we start thinking about holiday gifts and what we can possibly get dear Aunt Martha this year… the woman who complains about every gift she receives!

For most, holiday shopping comes in the combination of online orders, malls, and local stores. In today’s world, we all lead such busy lives so it’s understandable that online purchases must be made. I’ve always been a huge supporter of our local businesses and try to make a purchase from a local store when I can. It’s even better when a local business has an online site to shop on.

BACON

How many ways can you eat a pig? You can find out at the 3rd annual Bacon Fest held November 8th & 9th in Downtown Easton, Centre Square. It’s the largest festival associated with Easton’s farmers market. In its 3rd year, the festival plans to have the biggest one yet, with an estimated attendance of over 50,000.

The festival originated from the highly successful VegFest held each year in Bethlehem. The idea was that if a Vegan festival can do so well, why can’t a “meat festival” or Bacon Festival do just as well for the non-vegan and meat lovers in this world. The idea became a huge success as PA Bacon fest is now also listed as one of the top 300 festivals in the world on fest300.com.

Whatever you call it, it is Beautiful.

Exactly, one month and one day ago, on September 23rd, the autumnal equinox occurred, ushering in the first day of fall. And, there are only 58 days remaining in fall before the winter solstice ushers in winter on December 21st. Without discussing the Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Hanukkah or the last shopping weekend before Christmas, let’s look at a few Lehigh Valley seasonal musts!

Wait … is it autumn or fall? It doesn’t matter anymore, and the know-it-all would say, that it is harvest, because that’s what it was called before it was called autumn or fall. So for this post, let’s just agree to disagree, because I don’t consistently call it the same thing in my own speech!
