As the Holidays approach, many families often plan fun activities to enjoy time together. Some families get together to see a holiday themed movie or maybe attend the local tree lighting ceremony. These wonderful family traditions make the holidays such a special time of year. In Excelsior Springs, where I live, it wouldn't be the holidays without visiting the Hall of Trees in the historic Hall of Waters. Each year, businesses and community organizations decorate trees for a fun and festive holiday display that children and adults alike can enjoy.
