Saint Nicholas is beginning to check his list, silver bells are ringing and we’re all dreaming of just a little bit of snow – it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Jump-start your holiday cheer with a stroll through downtown Mount Shasta, where you can explore natural wonders, visit with friendly shopkeepers and treat yourself to a lovely meal. Be sure to stop by Douglas Lane, where a local couple has 100,000 lights on display. The extravagant attraction has grown steadily over the years, much to the delight of locals and visitors alike.

Capt. Lee Anne Smith could write a book on sharing the gift of companionship. As chief of operations at Haven Humane Society, her job can be both heartwarming and heart-wrenching, but she’s honored to help lost and stray animals find their forever homes. “We’re really making a difference, and I’m loving it,” Smith says.

Meanwhile, let us share some of our favorite holiday traditions with you, along with beauty tricks for making an unforgettable entrance at your social gatherings. Who’s ready to sparkle?

When you shop locally, you show that you care not only for the people on your holiday list, but also for your community. Chico’s Created4ACause features handmade gifts that benefit people with disabilities. And of course, we’d love to see you at Enjoy the Store in Redding or Red Bluff, where local artisans have their art, wine, food, crafts and more for sale. Get a head start on your New Year’s resolution and help strengthen our local economy.

Enjoy this magical time of year!
