While Black Friday benefits the big box retailers and Cyber Monday benefits online shopping, Small Business Saturday carves out a day for the “mom and pop” stores. So how does shopping local benefit you the consumer? First, you have much more control and probably get much better customer service. Let’s say you’re buying a tool for dad. Do you think you will get better service at an enormous big box home improvement store or from the local hardware store that has been in business for 30 years? Have you ever tried to find help at one of these warehouse type stores? Good luck finding someone over 18 to answer your question. It is also more likely that local business owners will stand by their products, as they have their reputation to protect. Shopping local keeps your community strong. Spending money locally keeps that money in the community, which helps the community grow. A growing community will then have a better opportunity to support other local organizations like youth sports, nonprofits and charitable organizations. Shopping local also creates jobs.

The more successful a local business, the more people they will need to hire and the more people who are employed, the healthier a community becomes. Also consider how local businesses can make your community more unique. Big box chain stores are everywhere and their products are all the same. But let’s say your community has a bakery for dogs. Now that’s unique and people will come from far away to check it out. The more people that shop your community, the stronger its economy becomes and this can benefit everyone. From a tax standpoint small businesses make better use of your tax dollars. These businesses require much less infrastructure investment than national chains. Small local businesses are also more efficient with the use of public services. Both of these factors allow your tax dollars to go farther. Shopping local this holiday season is a great idea for many reasons. So before you start checking things off of your list, check out your local businesses. It’s a win for them, for you and for your community.

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

Local shopping creates TRADITIONS by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

’Tis the season for holiday shopping and for some people it can get tedious. Some folks put their heart and soul into holiday shopping, getting gifts for everyone from their family to their mail carrier. But what if you could do your shopping and help your community all at the same time? One way to do this is to shop local.

SAVE THE DATE

Shopping local is a concept that has been around for years, but tying it to the holidays really got a push with Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is the Saturday following Thanksgiving and Black Friday. This year, the event falls on Saturday, Nov. 25.

Staying in is always the perfect excuse to create a comforting meal from scratch, especially when it fills your house with warmth and good scents. Use cooking time to catch up with family and friends. It could be a batch of almond scones, a chicken pot pie with extra rosemary or a homemade pizza with a robust sauce. For the most delicious results, always start with high-quality, wholesome ingredients that make you feel good about what you’re making.

As the nights lengthen and temperatures drop, it’s a time to embrace all the simple and cozy pleasures the season has to offer: tailgating parties, fuzzy socks, hanging strings of lights to bring ambiance to those early evenings. Of course, the season also brings on some serious cravings for warm and comforting fare including warm drinks, stews, chili and homemade spicy baked apple desserts. In fact, now is the perfect time to increase your contentment and spread the joy by preparing and sharing some homemade food. With these tips, you’ll have the perfect recipe for making you and others around

SHARE THE JOY

Whatever you’re cooking this holiday season, consider making extra portions to share with others. Prepare a meal and invite some friends over for a feast and conversation. Or use your cooking to uplift someone who could really use a friendly gesture. Perhaps there’s an elderly neighbor who can’t get out much in the winter, or a friend or colleague with a touch of the blues. A shared homemade meal can be a source of comfort and bring contentment to a dark winter evening.

TAKE TIME FOR REFLECTION

In the end, your effort and the happiness it creates can make you feel a deeper appreciation for life’s simple pleasures. Think about how the time-honored practice of sharing your home, your time and a homemade meal transforms how you feel about the season. Then, inspire others with your stories and photos on social media, or just take a few photos of those in attendance to remember a meal shared with friends. Consider extending the gathering by playing cards or a board game, or just keep the conversation going around the table.

What’s your favorite HOLIDAY tradition? OLYMPIC PENINSULA RESIDENTS SHARE WAYS THEY CELEBRATE THE SEASON

“From as far back as I can remember, my parents always gave us one gift to open on Christmas Eve night. We always had a full house on Christmas Eve and my brother and I would eagerly wait for the one gift to open. But of course, we couldn’t pick out the gift that we wanted to open … it was Mom’s choice. Every year, from childhood to the day I moved out of the house, my one gift was brand new pajamas. As a child I always hated this tradition, so naturally I had to carry on this tradition with my children. It has been a humorous tradition that my children (who are all now grown and living on their own) look forward to every year. My husband always picks out the perfect PJs for me and I shop for the perfect match for each child and my hubby too. I love that my kids have learned to embrace this tradition and I look forward to watching them carry this on with their children for many years to come.” Jody Copeland of Sequim, assistant vice president and branch manager at First Federal’s Sixth Street Branch in Port Angeles

Give a gift that’s always the right size! A print* subscription to the Sequim Gazette.

“One of our family’s long-standing holiday traditions is to make tamales every Christmas. When I was little, I helped my mother make tamales. Now, my daughter and granddaughter help me carry on the tradition each year.” Vivian Elvis Hansen of Port Angeles, Peninsula Daily News marketing and online representative

“My two daughters and I participate in the Operation Christmas Child, and on Christmas Eve (or the night before the girls and I celebrate Christmas), we make hot cocoa and popcorn and drive around to look at Christmas lights.” Sarah Brown of Port Angeles, registered nurse >> HOLIDAY TRADITIONS continued on Page 17

“Ask anyone in our family about holiday traditions and first comes a belly laugh, then the words ‘deceit and lies!’ No matter your age, the family credo is ‘Live by the Golden Rule, a life of integrity, except at Christmas when all bets are off.’ When Jace wanted skis for Christmas, the long, ski-shaped gift under the tree was explained as woodworking clamps for Dad — even the gift tag read ‘For Dad.’ When an American Girl Doll sized-box appeared under the tree the year our daughter coveted one, Grandma Mary confided in whispers another relative had turned in their wish list with the doll on it first, followed by ‘So don’t be disappointed, maybe next year.’ An ornately decorated box that took two people to lift was filled with rocks and a note saying ‘Your gift is in the linen closet.’ On Christmas morning when we gathered around the tree the family scramble would ensue as we leaped about changing gift tags over to the correct gifts with laughter and choruses of ‘I never believed that was for Dad!’ and ‘Wow! You really got me this year!’” Eileen Schmitz of Sequim, president of JACE Real Estate Company “One year my daughter received a gift for Christmas, it was a book titled ‘Santa Mouse.’ In the book it talks about Santa’s little helper who leaves a little white box with a yellow ribbon and inside is a little gift. So for years now, we put up and decorate the Christmas tree, then the night before Christmas we read the book, leave Santa his milk ’n’ cookies and of course Santa Mouse his cheese. Then next day my daughter wakes up, opens her presents and searches for the little white box with the yellow ribbon hidden in the tree. Merry Christmas!” Sarah Ketchum of Joyce, customer service representative for Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County

Finding A TREE

by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Finding the perfect Christmas tree is a holiday tradition the entire family can participate in. Selecting a tree that will stand proudly in your home during the season is often one of the ways families start their holiday season. Whether you go to an area tree farm, stop by a temporary tree stand in a parking lot or venture into the forest, you are sure to find a tree that suits your needs. For hearty Peninsula residents choosing to cut a tree on Olympic National Forest lands, here are a few things you need to know: • You-cut Christmas tree permits are available from Olympic National Forest for $5 each starting in November. >> FINDING A TREE continued on Page 19

Holiday Traditions


The origins of some beloved HOLIDAY TRADITIONS by METRO CREATIVE SERVICES

The holiday season is upon us. Presents are being purchased and wrapped. The stockings will soon be hung on the fireplace mantle. Mistletoe is pinned above the front entryway, and poinsettias add rich color to home decor. Tradition is integral come the holiday season. Throughout the month of December, traditions fill people’s days and comprise the many reasons why individuals decorate, celebrate and dine the way they do this time of year. But few may know the origins of some of the most beloved holiday traditions.

CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS

The Christmas stockings of today may be a byproduct of various traditions. One such tradition dates back to a Dutch custom in which children would leave shoes full of food to feed St. Nicholas’ donkeys, and then St. Nicholas would leave small gifts in return. Another origin story of Christmas stockings can be traced to the 12th century, when nuns would leave socks full of nuts, fruit and tangerines for the poor. This is why some people still put tangerines in Christmas stockings.

CHRISTMAS TREE

Christmas trees are everywhere this time of year. The use of evergreen trees predates Christmas and is associated with the pagan festival of Saturnalia, which celebrated the agricultural god Saturn with partying and gift-giving. During the winter solstice, green

branches served as a reminder that spring would arrive anew. Germans are credited with first bringing evergreens into their homes and decorating them.

SANTA CLAUS

Santa Claus’ origin story can be traced to St. Nicholas, a Christian bishop who lived during the fourth century. St. Nicholas was very generous and gave away his fortune to help the needy. He also did various other good deeds. St. Nicholas became notorious and began to be known by various names around the world. The Dutch called him Sinter Klaas, which was eventually transformed to Santa Claus. The jolly persona came later when 20th century advertisers — especially the artists responsible for Coca-Cola ads — portrayed Santa in a red suit with a big smile.

MISTLETOE

Mistletoe is hung in doorways, and couples who stand beneath are encouraged to share a kiss. The tradition of hanging it in the house goes back to the times of the ancient Druids. Mistletoe was thought by many to bring good luck to a household and ward off evil spirits. The custom of kissing under mistletoe can be traced to England. Originally, a berry was picked from the sprig of mistletoe before the person could be kissed. When all the berries had gone, there could be no more kissing.

‘Hand up, not a handout’ Peninsula Home Fund offers a chance to help neighbors in need by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Sometimes it’s the little things that loom the largest. Your budget’s tight but you’re making it, barely — and then an unexpected car repair leaves you short on the rent. You’re proud of making your available cash stretch to cover school clothes and supplies for your children — and then one loses the glasses that are essential for him to read and keep up with schoolwork. You got that job — but now you lack appropriate work clothes or a bus pass to get to work. What do you do? On the North Olympic Peninsula, generous residents create a safety net for their neighbors, donating what they can to the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund. Donations collected by the PDN benefit Olympic Community Action Programs (OlyCAP), the No. 1 emergency-care agency in Clallam and Jefferson counties, where case workers screen applicants and carefully distribute the funds. The annual campaign starts Thanksgiving Day and will include weekly feature stories in the PDN about area residents who have been helped by the Peninsula Home Fund, donor contribution lists and more.

Please note: Due to substantial community demands, the loss of grants from recent cuts in government funding and the status of the economy, OlyCAP was permitted to use 10 percent — 10 cents of every dollar donated — to pay for the vital programs and services for Home Fund clients. This standing began in 2012 and continues today. OlyCAP has kept it in the area of 8 percent to 10 percent, a fraction of the average overhead of other nonprofits. • The Home Fund is not a welfare program. Money is used to give families and individuals from Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to Sequim, Joyce and La Push “a hand up, not a handout” to get through an emergency situation. Assistance, which usually averages less than $100, is limited to one time in a 12-month period. The average amount of help this year has been $62 per person and $212 per household. The fund has served 1,022 households and 3,496 individuals since Jan. 1. Money from the fund is used for hot meals for seniors in Jefferson and Clallam counties; warm winter coats for kids; home repairs for a low-income family; needed prescription drugs; dental work; help with evictions and deposits for moving into permanent housing; eyeglasses — the list goes on and on. All instances of help are designed to get an individual or family through a crisis — and back to self-sufficiency. Home Fund case managers often work with each individual or family to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. As needed, Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with money from churches, service clubs and other donors, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. The goal again: “a hand up, not a handout.” • All contributions are IRS tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law for the year in which the check is written. Your personal information is kept confidential. PDN does not rent, sell, give or otherwise share your address or information with anyone or make any other use of it. Since its beginning, the fund has relied on the support of Jefferson and Clallam county residents. As of Nov. 8, $238,084 has been spent for Home Fund grants. And as we move into winter, the toughest period of the year, all of the remaining money — $26,402 — is expected to be spent by mid-January.

Rejoice, but relax

STEPS TO A MERRY-BUTMANAGEABLE HOLIDAY by BRANDPOINT

For many, the pressure of the holiday season can be enough to wear away the glitter and magic. Some 62 percent of American adults define their stress as “very or somewhat” elevated over the holidays, says research cited by Harvard Medical School’s Department of Neurobiology. But that old chestnut doesn’t have to be true for you.

When you plan ahead and keep your expectations reasonable, the holiday season can unfold at an even and enjoyable pace, making room for new and happy memories. This is doubly true when you’re entertaining. As long as you’re well-prepared, your event can create holiday cheer and goodwill and even strengthen bonds between friends and family. Consider how these entertaining tips can help you stage a minimal-stress,

maximum-impact event at which your guests can relax this holiday season. 1. Make your list, check it twice. Assign tasks to different days leading up to the event so you can stay on task, factoring in the time you’ll need for other holiday happenings. 2. Enlist elves. It’s likely unrealistic to expect yourself to single-handedly master all the cooking, cleaning, decorating and mingling your event will involve. In the spirit of the season, consider hiring younger family members to help with the more grueling tasks — then paying them with holiday shopping money. 3. Bring on (then freeze) the figgy pudding. Let’s face it, many dishes taste just as good or better when prepared ahead of time and frozen or simply kept in the fridge until they’re ready to serve. Save the last hours leading to your event for recipes that will taste much better freshly made and/or hot out of the oven.

4. Deck the halls simply. Fresh, sweet-smelling pine boughs tied with red ribbon can be tucked into containers throughout your home, while inexpensive or vintage colored glass bulbs look festive when wound with strings of white twinkle lights and placed in translucent bowls. 5. Tidy the workshop. Assign one room to be the catch-all when company is coming, then keep that door closed while entertaining. Sort it out at your own pace after the holidays. 6. Rudolph as remedy. Weariness and/or a bad mood can be hard to sustain when you’re playing festive, upbeat holiday music people have been singing along to since they were children. The holidays are typically filled with joy and some stress. But when you make a conscious attempt to reduce the busywork, you’re more apt to feel warm and happy about the memories you’ve created for yourself and others. Holiday Traditions
