It’s that time of year again. You know, Easter. That means the crazy peeps will be out and about and all over YouTube having a wild and crazy time with their childhood besties, the marshmallow Peep!

It’s pretty cool that these famous treats are made right here in Lehigh Valley. And, it is even cooler that this is their 60th Anniversary Year. Way to go Just Born!

North Pole Express Flight

Who wants to go to the North Pole?  Recently some very special children from Lehigh Valley had the opportunity to take this memorable flight.  These kids are a part of Dream Come True, an organization that benefits seriously, chronically and terminally ill children.

Back in December I had the opportunity to be involved in the North Pole Express Flight from Lehigh Valley International Airport.  This unique event was a true Lehigh Valley event supported by great partners including the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Just Born Candy, Nazareth Chamber of Commerce and many more.  The entire day was a rewarding experience for the volunteers, families and children.

Lehigh Valley Holiday Tweetup

Four years ago, if you told someone you were headed to a “Tweetup” they’d surely ask you if that was a new yogurt place.

But now, with nearly everyone on some type of social media, the act of meeting other people via online sources for networking or personal purposes seems normal. Tweetups are social events where those who routinely communicate or do business via Twitter can meet in person to continue with networking or just to put a face to a handle. The real life push for online mediums isn’t new, heck, some guy even made a real life Pinterest pin board.

What's open in Lehigh Valley on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day?

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will surely be filled with time with family, opening presents in pajama pants, eggnog and ham.

However, many people still venture out on one or two of the days and it’s good to know what is open before you find your favorite placed closed for the holiday.

Quirky Christmas Shopping at the Indimade Craft Market in Allentown

I have to admit…I envy people who shop for Christmas presents all year long, especially those boasting about having everything wrapped as they sit down for Thanksgiving dinner. (You know who you are!) Do they even remember what they bought or are they as surprised as the person getting the gift when it comes time for opening?

This year I did get an early start, December 1st to be exact. My friend Donna (new to Lehigh Valley) and I made it a girl’s day out and headed to the indimade craft market held at the Starlite Ballroom in Allentown. This was my first time attending but they’ve been holding this event for five years. I’ll definitely make sure to go again. This isn’t your “old people sitting in a nursing home knitting sweaters with three arms” kind of craft fair. The vendors all had really cool merchandise, funky re-purposed gift items and, of course, displays of very clever works of art where all you can do is say “why didn’t I think of that?”

Christmas Steins at Christkindlmarkt

My family doesn’t mess around when it comes to Christmas. Every square inch of my parent’s house in Mountoursville, Pa  is transformed into Christmas-land. Obviously we go with the basics; some lights on the outside of the house, tree decked out to the nines in the living room, but then we take it the extra mile.

We have not just one, but three trees (one with regular ornaments, one with all snowmen, and one with mice). Christmas plates get swapped out with the normal every day ones. We have a living room full of Santas. German Nutcrackers line the stairs. A dining room overflows with snowmen. Kitchen cabinets are topped with a collection of holiday Coca-Cola bottles.
