Trees, menorahs and wreaths Holiday traditions around the island By BEN WATANABE

Winter means a full-swing holiday season, largely dominated by Christmas and Hanukkah around Whidbey Island. That means trees are brought inside, wreaths hung outside, candles lit, and family time. Here’s a look at what some of the traditions are, and why they are celebrated by a few of the island’s faithful.

CHRISTMAS

The most widely celebrated winter holiday in America is Christmas, the Christian observance of Jesus Christ’s birth. With it come trees, songs, gifts and, like Hanukkah, candles. In many of the Protestant faiths — Methodist, Lutheran, Episcopal, Presbyterian — much of the the traditions are similar.

Mary Boyd, pastor of the Langley United Methodist Church, said many people return to church around Christmas because of the familiarity of the rituals. Evergreen trees and wreaths symbolize eternal life, with their lush, verdant needles and the continuing circle — without beginning or end. “We want those things that tie us to our memories and hopefully lead us to the future,” she said. Her church and congregation hold a candlelight vigil on Christmas Eve in preparation of the birthday of Jesus Christ. Without fail, the evening service ends with a communal singing of “Silent Night,” with only candles lighting the sanctuary. “It’s a sense of capturing the mystery of the night,” she said. “It is one of the sweetest moments of the whole service,” she added. In the Catholic Church, such as at St. Hubert in Langley, Christmas is more than a 24-hour period of gift exchanges and carols.

The dreidel, a spinning top enjoyed by children, is a common Hanukkah symbol. Its origins are as a form of gambling and as a game of chance. Traditional dreidels include four letters which are an acronym for “A Great Miracle Happened.”

“For us, Christmas isn’t a day,” said Father Rick Spicer of St. Hubert. “It’s a season.” Combined with Advent, the celebration of the four Sundays prior to Christmas, Dec. 25, the Catholic season of preparing and celebrating Christ’s birth lasts from Nov. 29

through Jan. 11 this year. The days from Christmas Eve on are known as Christmastide. Included are the Feast of the Holy Family and the Epiphany, or the celebration of when God was revealed to non-Jews — the three kings or three wisemen. SEE TRADITIONS, PAGE 4

On the Sunday before Christmas, not much is different about a Catholic service — mass — other than the inclusion of a tree in the sanctuary and a nativity scene, called a creche. Made popular by St. Francis of Assisi, the nativity scene is put into a corner of the sanctuary as an image of the Holy Family, Spicer said. At the Langley United Methodist Church, there is no such luck for evergreen enthusiasts. That’s a decision made by the congregation and is largely done out of a lack of space. This year will be the first in many that the Methodist church has not had an Advent concert. With all of the choir members and musicians, there’s little room for a towering timber. Both churches like many others, Boyd and Spicer said, take the time to challenge people to remember to live faith outward through deeds. Helping others or encouraging a deeper connection to the divine is the reason for the season, they said.

r ts fo f i G

Spicer likes to give literature as gifts to his loved ones as a personal choice to reflect on the holiday’s meaning. Boyd and the United Methodists in Langley offer an optional gift program. “This congregation does an alternative Christmas fair where people find out about Heifer Project and choose to give to that,” she said. As a more recent development, the Langley church hosts a Cookie Walk. Several members of the United Methodist Women’s Group bake cookies and other baked goods, sell boxes for people to fill, and use the money to donate to several charities. “The whole thing’s over in 20 minutes,” Boyd said with a laugh. On the Winter Solstice, the Methodist church hosts a Longest Eve service. Boyd said it was designed for people struggling with grief or loss or being lonely during the winter holidays. “It draws us back to the true meaning of Christmas, of love come down, live among us,” she said.

HANUKKAH

The eight-day December celebration by the Jewish faith tradition is a recognition of a miracle amid conflict. A group of Jews, known as the Maccabees, revolted against the Seleucid rulers in Jerusalem and regained control of the Second Temple. They had enough oil to burn for one day in the menorah (candelabra) to purify the temple, but it burned long enough — eight days — for them to ready a new supply. Thus, the tradition of an eight-day Hanukkah was born. “The oil they had lasted for eight days and was a miracle,” said Allan Ament, a member of the Whidbey Island Jewish Community, an informal meeting group and sounding board. Now, it is remembered and celebrated with the lighting of eight candles on a menorah, foods and even small gift giving. In the United States, Hanukkah has grown to include several small gifts to coincide with the Christmas tradition of gift giving. “In this country, because it usu-

ally falls around Christmas, kids get gifts, usually one each night,” he said. Ament recalled feeling at a disadvantage during December as a child because most of his friends received gifts, big and small. He described it as “a hard holiday for me as a kid and most of my friends.” Eventually, he and his family adopted the tradition to a degree. Some of the food traditions include oily foods and jelly donuts, Ament said. There are different food traditions based on the branch of Judaism — Mediterranean Jews eat jelly donuts and Eastern European Jews eat potato pancakes. “The two of them together make for a lot of carbs,” Ament said. Another iconic Hanukkah symbol is the dreidel, a spinning top enjoyed by children. Its origins, Ament said, are as a form of gambling and as a game of chance. Traditional dreidels include four letters which are an acronym for “A Great Miracle Happened.” Playing the game commemorates a tradition believed to have started when studying the Torah was outlawed by the Seleucid Empire. The holiday’s date is determined by the Jewish calendar, but mostly occurs in December. This year, Hanukkah begins Dec. 6 and lasts until Dec. 14. Every year, the Whidbey Island Jewish Community hosts a gathering during Hanukkah to celebrate together and, as Ament said, eat a lot of carbs. For him, as a layperson and not a rabbi, even when he was not observing his faith, he remembered to light the menorah. “It was a nice tradition and I liked the light,” he said.

Locally produced products great for holiday gift giving By JESSIE STENSLAND

If you are searching for one-of-a-kind, quality gifts to give to people near or far, the perfect solution may be something that is made by a craftsperson or small manufacturer on Whidbey Island. The island has a burgeoning community of talented craftspeople, manufacturers and food producers who are building products that are truly “made on Whidbey.” While it can be an adventure to search Whidbey’s many nooks and crannies to find the perfect Whidbey-made treasure, several stores across the island

support local entrepreneurs by carrying their wares. In Coupeville, the Lavender Wind shop sells a veritable smorgasbord of products. They have essential oils, gift sets, cleaners, scents, decorative bundles, lotions, shampoos, culinary lavender, baked goods, eye soothers, massage oil, soap and much more. In addition, owner Sarah Richards said she carries items made by Whidbey craftspeople, including vases made from silverware, sconces made from Whidbey clay, wooden utensils and calendars featuring photos of the island. Richards said her top-

Their wares are in a couple of dozen brick-andmortar shops in the U.S., Canada and even Hong Kong, plus on several online stores — including their own. Recently a couple traveled all the way from Seattle just to visit the store. They also make a point of carrying unique items made by others on Whidbey. “I’m surprised and encouraged by the number of small craft manufacturers on the island,” she said. “I meet a lot of people who are just starting and growing their businesses.” There’s yarn from Abundant Earth Fiber, a Clinton fiber mill that produces yarn and roving from local, regional and domestically sourced, natural fibers. She also found a person in Oak Harbor who makes soap, candles, crackers and more.

Turnco Wood Goods in Clinton offers handmade wooden wares. While they work out of their Clinton shop, the company sells items in the U.S., Canada and Hong Kong.

Another business that carries locally made and unique products is Edit in Langley. The mercantile portion of the store carries curated goods mostly made by “smallmakers with limited inventories,” according to the website. Three Sisters Market is located between Coupeville and Oak Harbor.

It’s owned by a fifth-generation Whidbey farm family that raises grass-fed beef, pork and cage-free eggs. The retail store, however, doesn’t carry just Whidbeyraised meat, but a wide range of Whidbey-made products, including food, gifts, health and beauty products and baked goods.

From baking festive frosted sugar cookies to stringing the Christmas tree in bright twinkling lights, most holiday traditions are best when shared with others. Along with a spirit of giving, a sense of fellowship and community is central to the holiday season. Whidbey Island boasts a myriad of holiday events that individuals, couples, friends and families can enjoy. Parades and caroling will help to kick things off in Langley and Coupeville, each of which will hold its annual holiday procession Dec. 5.

Glitter galore at Festival of Trees The trio of McCormack, Molly Nagel and Trina Coe took over the reins from Mollie Anthony two years ago after Anthony stepped down after 15 years as decorating coordinator. The job, among other things, involves shopping for materials and coordinating the decorating process of the trees, wreaths and garlands that will be auctioned off at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County’s biggest annual fundraiser. “Lots of people are very artistic and have extraordinary talents,” said Tamra Sipes, the organization’s president. “They just want to be able to do something and give back.” The event, sponsored by Island Thrift, starts with a gala and auction Friday night, Dec. 4, followed by

By RON NEWBERRY

Among the requirements of being a decorator with the Festival of Trees is to possess a natural love for all things glittery. But the rule doesn’t apply to spouses. "If you're dealing with festival ornaments you're going to have a glitter bomb happening because most ornaments are accented with glitter," said Hope McCormack. "I try to keep my house as glitter free as possible because my husband hates it." McCormack is one of three decorating coordinators from Oak Harbor tasked with making sure trees sparkle and glow at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County’s Festival of Trees event, Dec. 4, at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge.

a Teddy Bear and Character Breakfast and community tree viewing Saturday, Dec. 5. The gala starts at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $100. Scott Fraser and staff from Frasers Gourmet Hideway are preparing the dinner. The breakfast will have two seatings — at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Tickets are $5 for attendees 15 and under and $15 for ages 16 and over. The free community viewing takes place from 1-3 p.m. A total of 10 large trees, four table-top trees, two garlands and some wreaths will be decorated and auctioned off in the 17th year of the event. The trees come from Pacific Winds Farm in Oak Harbor and will include SEE FESTIVAL, PAGE 18

one 10-footer for the first time. The other large trees are 7 feet tall. After themes are selected, McCormack, Nagel and Coe organize a large group of decorators who get started putting on lights, decor and ornaments three days before the gala starts. McCormack called it “three days of craziness." “Lights can take a whole day,”

she said. After the event, the trees are carefully prepared, using wire, for safe delivery. Then when it’s all over, come January, organizers start looking ahead to next year. “Even in a small town, you don’t always get a sense of community,” McCormack said. “When you do something like this and volunteer and make an impact, it’s cool to be involved.”

With all the cooking and guests visiting, the holidays can get quite messy. These tips can help you keep the mess under control: n Scrub. With cooking, stovetops and ovens are bound to get dirty. Make a simple scouring solution using baking soda and water to help scrub off any baked-on grime. n Pack things up. Do some preholiday cleaning to store away or get rid of extra clutter in your home. Less clutter means less to clean up after your visitors leave.

GIFT PLANNING AND PURCHASING

Whether you’re a shopping mall veteran or an online shopping maven, gift-buying can be time consuming either way. Streamline with these strategies: n Make gift lists. List who you need to buy gifts for, your gift ideas for each person and a back-up idea

in case you can’t find what you were originally looking for. n Prepare for an emergency. Plan ahead and buy some extra cards and small gifts for when you’re in need of a last-minute gift.

FOOD PREPARATION

For tasty and easy holiday meals, remember these three guidelines: n The freezer is your friend. Any foods that will withstand freezing and thawing can be made weeks in advance, allowing you to spend holiday time mingling with guests and preparing dishes that can’t be made ahead of time. n Stick to the tried and true. If you want to introduce a new dish during the holidays, make sure you have a few test runs of it under your belt before its big debut. Otherwise, use recipes you know will turn out great. n Say “yes”to guests. If your guests offer to bring something, don’t turn them away. Even something simple, like a bottle of wine, is one less thing for you to worry about.

Holiday hosting: Ideas for effortless entertaining

This year, find creative ways to elevate your holiday hosting with a time-smart approach that's no less gourmet. Look for versatile recipes that can be made ahead, reheated in minutes and served straight from the oven to make holiday entertaining stress-free. Creative combinations of fresh, seasonal ingredients transform typical casserole dishes from mundane to gourmet fare fit for any holiday occasion. Another time-saving way to elevate your holiday entertaining is offering a selection of high quality wines to accompany your meal. Look for wines that consistently exhibit intense layers of flavor with complexity and balance. Start your holiday menu with a versatile and savory bread pudding, created by Irvin Lin, author of the blog, "Eat the Love." This winter dish is ideal for a crowd and offers the flexibility of serving smaller portions as a side item or larger portions for a main course.

SAVORY MUSHROOM, BACON AND GRUYERE BREAD PUDDING

Servings: 6 1/2 pound bacon 1/2 pound (about 1/2 loaf) crusty sourdough bread 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper, divided 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

6 cloves garlic, minced 1 1/2 cups chopped onions 1/2 cup chopped celery 1/2 cup chopped red pepper 1/2 pound sliced button mushrooms 1/4 cup chopped parsley leaves 2 teaspoons dried oregano 4 large eggs 2 cups heavy cream 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Gruyere cheese, divided

Place bacon in freezer to chill. This will help make it easier to chop. Heat oven to 375 F. Cut bread into 1/2-inch cubes and place in large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over bread and sprinkle with thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and garlic powder. Toss with spatula to coat evenly, then spread bread evenly in one layer onto rimmed baking sheet. No need to clean bowl yet. Bake bread for 20 minutes or until bread starts to turn golden. Remove from oven and lower oven

temperature to 350 F. Remove bacon from freezer and finely chop it. In a 3 1/2-quart oven-proof stovetop casserole pan, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crispy. Use slotted spoon to move bacon pieces to bowl lined with paper towel. Pour bacon grease out, but don't wipe out pan. Add garlic to pan and cook over medium heat for 30 seconds or until it starts to smell fragrant. Add onions, celery and red pepper and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add mushrooms and cook until all vegetables are soft, about 5 more minutes. Season with remaining salt and pepper. Pour toasted bread into original large bowl and add vegetables and cooked bacon. Add parsley leaves and dried oregano, and mix together with large spatula. In medium bowl, whisk together eggs and cream. Pour over bread and vegetables, add 1/2 the shredded Gruyere cheese and mix with spatula. Pour entire contents back

into casserole pan. Sprinkle top of pudding with remaining cheese. Place in oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until top of bread pudding has turned golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve warm. —Family Features

Measure: To estimate the number of lights needed for your tree, plan an average of 100 lights for every foot of tree height. Serious decorators often double that. LED vs. Incandescent: LEDs are more expensive than incandescent lights, but last longer. Likewise, more sets of LED lights can be strung together end-to-end than traditional incandescent light sets. When it comes to energy use, a tree with 1,000 incandescent lights can cost $10 over an average holiday season while the same tree using LED lights costs around $1.50. Inspect: Before stringing lights, check for broken bulbs and sockets, frayed cords, burned out lights and loose connections. For sets with bulb outages, use the LightKeeper Pro

Here are several tips to keep your holidays bright and stress levels low when it comes to holiday lighting:

for incandescent lights or the LED Keeper for LED lights to find and fix the problem. Squeeze the trigger a few times and most light sets will illuminate in seconds. Connect: When using incandescent lights, connect no more than three strands of mini string sets together. LED light sets can handle connecting more than 30 strands together. Indoor vs. Outdoor: Commercialgrade light sets are more reliable for outdoor use because of their durability and thicker insulation. Live and artificial trees: When stringing lights on a tree, begin at the top of the tree and wind the strands through its center, widening with the tree's shape. Real trees should be watered daily. When the tree is purchased, request half an inch be sawed off so the tree can take in more water. Replace and repair lights: To get the most out of your light sets, do occasional visual checks for any bulbs that are no longer working. Replace those bulbs as soon as possible. Two burned out bulbs can decrease the lifespan of the light set by 39 percent; four burned out bulbs by 67 percent.

Whether you are the first one on your block to hang lights or the lastminute decorator hurrying to decorate your tree, nothing is more frustrating than having a section of lights fail to illuminate.
