Let The Christmas Season Begin

Volunteers Dayna Marchesseault, left, and Bambi Marshall string ribbon around 32 displays, which include 29 themed and decorated trees, prior to the evening viewing in the Coeur d'Alene Resort convention center Friday. The annual Festival of Trees, put on by the Kootenai Health Foundation, has raised more than $4.4 million for projects at Kootenai Medical Center, including the heart center, cancer center and birthing center. The weekend event runs through Monday evening, and the ticketed events, such as the gala, senior social and the fashion shows, are sold out. Organizers said the best opportunity for non-ticket holders to view the elaborate tree displays is Family Day on Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. when admission is $2 per person.

Question: My family and I attended the downtown parade and fireworks show at the Coeur d'Alene Resort Friday night. We enjoyed a nice 4 days together for the Thanksgiving break. Tell us about your Thanksgiving holiday.
