We’re down to the final days before Christmas, and our house is a hub of gift shipping and receiving.

It’s been a challenging year for many of us, and Christmas 2020 is certainly going to be different. If you need a quick-and-easy gift for a reader in your life, think about giving a gift card. The gift recipient, and your fellow Bidwell Hollow readers, thank you.
