first_imgTo the Editor:The holiday season is here! Shoppers rush from store to store, looking for the right gift for that special someone. Yuletide cheer is alive and well. Passers-by seem more friendly than usual. Strangers are willing to lend a helping hand. Peace, love, and understanding supplant anger, hate, and intolerance. Truly, the magic of Christmas brings people closer together. However, about the second week in January, dried-out Christmas trees, Yuletide decorations, and holiday gift-wrappings are thrown away.
