Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Catching the holiday spirit

Thank you Penticton Western News for the Holiday Spirit magazine

Thank you! It arrived this week. I have been looking forward to it, as I do every year at this time.

This little magazine “Holiday Spirit” in the Penticton Western News (Wednesday, Nov. 29 edition) with its traditional Christmas songs and wonderful recipes from local people. I love it.

I use, collect and save them. I leaf through the pages of songs and hear them in my mind. I see myself making and tasting the recipes, and wonder who these neat people are who have given us these delectable recipes. I note each of the sponsors who contribute and send their greetings. I am grateful for the owners of the newspaper, the editors and all who work to bring this wonderful holiday magazine and message to us (as well as all their work throughout the year).

I pray for all our community, God’s peace, love and joy. And ,an even better coming New Year.

Hannah Hyland
