I love taking in a holiday celebration to get my family into the Christmas spirit!

- If you love Black Friday Shopping but don't want to go out and tackle the crowds at the stores, check out some of these ideas on Amazon. Take advantage of a free 30-day trial for Amazon prime. You can give the gift of Amazon prime to someone including free deliveries, Prime Video with thousands of movies & TV shows, song & playlist streaming, free Kindle book access, and more. If you're looking for a nice household gift idea for someone, check out this 6-quart Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 electric pressure cooker for just $76.04 (the price has changed from a low of $50 when I first spotted it, so I’m assuming the prices vary based on how many have sold) or this Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker K-Cup Pod for $99.99.
- If you want to get into the holiday spirit, check out this year's 35th Annual Light-Up Eustis in Ferran Park from 5:00 - 9:00 pm. The Christmas Tree will be lit at 6:00 pm and Santa will arrive immediately after, and there will be free photos with Santa!
