It’s December and we’re in a festive mood here in Oregon. Holiday lights are twinkling, Christmas trees are up, and Oregon Ballet Theatre is set to dance “The Nutcracker” again.

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate this holiday season of sensible shopping deals, winter wonderland displays, snowy slopes and all kinds of seasonal fun.

This month, our recipe stars the delicious pear, and we have a list of great ways to ring in the holidays, from Christmas Ships in Portland to Holiday Lights at the Oregon Garden.

See you in Oregon, where we’re doing a snow dance!
