There's no better way to welcome in the holidays than by attending the annual Glenn Henriksen and Friends concert 3 p.m. Sunday at United Methodist Church at 102 S. Eighth St. in Estherville.
Henriksen is known far and wide for his virtuosity at the keyboard - both piano and organ. That's not all, though. He has an incredible knack for assembling a talented list of fellow entertainers that are sure to make the time fly by. You never know whom you might see. Glenn & Friends has featured old favorites as well as a number of up-and-coming artists.
So do yourself - and your family - a favor and attend this wonderful concert Sunday.
Remember to celebrate Christmas
A number of years ago, it would have seemed silly to even say this. But be sure you remember to observe the holidays this year.
Unfortunately, perhaps even tragically, Christmas is a holiday that a lot of people seem to let slip by. Maybe they're empty nesters. Or never had children. Or maybe they're single. Whatever the reason, it seems that every year more and more people spend Christmas alone.
The solution, of course, is to spend Christmas with family. If a person doesn't have a family near, though, Christmas is what you make it. Buy a tree, even if it's a miniature table top one, and invite a friend over and exchange gifts, even if they're small ones. There's no reason not to share Christmas, because as we all know, Christmas is all about sharing.
