decking the halls, preparing delicious meals, entertaining friends, attending parties, shopping, celebrating, and, finally, relaxing. This is just a partial list of the special things we have to look for- ward to during this busy holiday season. And this issue is filled with ideas to help you make the most out of these activities and then some. Let's start with holiday decorating. As you'll read in this issue's Green Scene, the best way to decorate for the season is with fresh greens from your garden. I think you'll find our tips helpful on how to keep greenery from the outdoors looking fresh and gorgeous indoors. When you're finished decorating and beginning to plan your holiday menus, remember that homemade soup is always appreciated. I know you'll enjoy our delicious soup recipes from local chefs in our Food & Wine section. Moving on to entertaining, if the parties you plan to host or attend this holiday season feature a dance floor, our "Do You Think You Can Dance" article will help get your feet moving. As one local dance instruc- tor says, "If you can walk, you can dance." Read how your neighbors are burning up the dance floor (and burning calories) and discover where to go to learn some sophisticated dance moves to impress your friends and family members. Let's not, of course, forget about holiday shopping. Chances are, you'll be inspired to go watch shopping after reading "Architects of Time." If you're looking for other gift ideas for those on your holiday list, I'm cer- tain you'll find many of them by reading the ads in this issue from our loyal advertisers. We are so fortunate to have many wonderful places to shop right here at home, so please be sure to shop local. There are many ways to celebrate the season in our towns, and we look at just a few of them in our "Merry and Bright" article. From a house decorating contest in Wellesley to wreath making in Weston to a Festival of Trees at Elm Bank, there is much to pack into a few short weeks.
