Top 10s



Are you relaxing in the glow of christmas lights and the glory of next day shipping, or are you feverishly wrapping gifts, stuffing last minute cards, and baking up a storm? We'd love to jump through the computer and lend you a hand! Since that's not yet possible, we've complied a list of ten things not to forget this Christmas, to help you out.


Top Ten Things To Remember This Christmas.



1 Make coffee! Or at least rev up the ole' Kureg!


2 Recycle all that wrapping paper! Goodwill will also gladly accept any gift bags you don't want to keep.


3 Take a little time today to call loved ones you won't be seeing over the holidays


4 Grab a handful of extra Christmas cards for friends or relatives you may run into if you're travelling or going to church on Christmas morning.


5 You don't have to gorge yourself just because it's the holidays. Take a small serving of every dish and eat slowly. Savor every bite of food and conversation.


6 Watch how many of those festive cocktails and glasses of wine you have. No one likes a Boxing Day hangover!


7 Say a heartfelt thank you for gifts you have received. Thank you cards are a sweet touch, especially if someone was extra generous.


8 Check the weather report and traffic conditions before leaving the house.


9 Pack pajamas and a toothbrush with toothpaste for the little ones if you'll be driving home late at night. It makes transitioning to bed so much easier when you get home if they're already in pajamas with teeth brushed!


10Remember that you are surrounded by love.


11Last but not least, this one rates an eleventh spot: The Fred Parent crew wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Great Train Race Director Jennifer Taylor was one of the first on board.
