It’s Christmas in Fayetteville


Ho,ho,ho! Fayetteville, Santa Claus is coming to town! And, I for one, can not wait.

Don’t you just love this time of year! Parades, festivals, Christmas shows, singing Christmas Trees, nutcrackers, bright lights, holiday songs, decorations, food, parties, presents and fruitcakes? Okay, maybe not fruitcakes. But, presents? Yeah, presents! Hey, what’s not to like?

We have so much to celebrate and be thankful for at Christmas. Actually, I find it amusing that even the most fanatical anti-Christmas atheist cannot object to the true celebration of this very special holiday without saying the word CHRISTmas.

I apologize in advance for my blatant and insensitive disregard for the atheist’s point of view. So, Merry CHRISTmas to the Fayetteville community and all our faithful readers.

I guess this would also be a good time to say “thank you” for all the call’s, emails, letters and voice messages we received in support of our newspaper’s position in support of Fayetteville’s Hometown Utility PWC, its board and management team. Up & Coming Weekly has a flawless 20-year history of supporting both the city and PWC. Rest assured your loyalty and the mission and mandates of our newspaper will not be abandon.

The perfect Christmas present to our city would be a message and reminder to our City Manager, Ted Voorhees, that the Grinch will never steal Christmas and he will never be able to steal PWC. Thank you for reading Up & Coming Weekly.
