Decked out for the holidays!

A Farmer’s Christmas at the Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village in Dover continues through Saturday, Dec. 19. With timed ticket sales on weekends, the museum is able to limit the number of visitors on its expansive property. The event features decorated Christmas trees, decorated displays and 1890s village buildings, contests, music, crafts for children, and special demonstrations including basket weaving, chainsaw carving, blacksmithing and butter churning.

Santa, please don’t give me this stuff

By Fritz Schranck
Another year’s gone by, and what a weird year, eh? Once again, I appreciate that you’ve been really great at not giving me what I don’t want for Christmas. I still need your help, because some golf gifts I would prefer to not find under my tree this year are still out there.

Perhaps at the top of my don’t-give-me list for 2020 is anything COVID-19-related, even if it also has something to do with golf. My pandemic fatigue has reached near narcolepsy levels.

With that in mind, please don’t give me the golf face mask/neck gaiter, sold through at a surprising $34 each.

SPCA seeks holiday hosts for shelter pets

The Brandywine Valley SPCA is seeking fosters as part of its third annual holiday sleepovers. This year’s sleepovers will focus on finding foster families to welcome the shelter’s most-overlooked dogs into their homes over the holidays. While the dogs are enjoying the holidays in foster care, the BVSPCA hopes to get insights, photos and videos that will help them find forever families for the dogs after the foster period.

The BVSPCA has prioritized dogs that could benefit. “These are terrific companions that may be overlooked for a number of reasons,” said Adam Lamb, BVSPCA CEO. “They may be a little older; they may need a home as an only pet, or they might be scared in the kennels and not show their best to adopters. All of them deserve the love of a family over the holidays.”
