  • Dealing with your child’s challenging behavior during the holidays

    By Benita Peoples, County extension agent for family and consumer science
    While we like to think of the holidays as a picture-perfect Norman Rockwell painting, they tend to be the exact opposite and full of stress for everyone around.

  • Holiday greenery has symbolism

    Holiday greenery has a history that goes well beyond the Victorian Christmas tree we gather around today. Most of the holiday greenery we use to decorate dates back to the pagan holidays of the Romans and Northern Europeans when certain plants were chosen for their symbolic powers of restoration and protection.
