Christmas

Jodi Peterson

Perhaps you’re celebrating Christmas, or perhaps you observe Hanukkah instead, or Kwanzaa, or have some other way to mark the season.  We all observe holidays in our own ways and with our own customs, and on Local Motion this week we have Christmas memories to share from some of our local seniors, at Colorow Care Center in Olathe and Crossroads Senior Living in Delta. This edition also includes a segment on Christmas music and memories from "With Good Reason."

  • CU releases economic forecast- record number of skiers last year
  • Restaurants supporting ski industry in dire need of employees
  • Snowpack in Colorado and the Southwest is above normal at this time of year
  • Parade of Lights in Montrose ushers in Holiday Season

Local Motion: Paonia Care

Dec 25, 2018

Residents at the Paonia Care Nursing Home share stories about their lives and memorable holidays from their past.

It's the time of the year when Katie Abrams sees her Fort Collins neighbors pulling up with real trees tied to car roofs. She feels small pangs of jealousy when friends post woodsy pictures in flannel shirts, cutting down the perfect spruce.

“It all sounds really nice,” Abrams says. “And then once you go out and do it I can just imagine all the steps involved.”

So instead she pulls out the fake tree from the garage. A mentality that terrifies American Christmas tree growers.

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, KVNF's Brian Cambria stopped in at Memorial Hall in Hotchkiss to talk with Marsha Grant and Toni Hanna during a volunteer-heavy event to wrap Christmas presents for children of the North Fork Valley. He captured an audio postcard to kick off the Christmas season.
