Each week, we work hard to bring you the best events happening in Jackson County this week along with some good news and our top picks of things to do in Jackson MI this weekend.
Finding JOY This Holiday Season
With so many holiday parties and traditions being put on hold this year, it’s easy to get caught up in a Scrooge-like attitude as we get closer to Christmas. But let’s not forget the spirit of the season is JOY.
Perhaps our JOY this season can be found in a new tradition:
- a neighborhood decorating contest
- taking a drive to see the best light displays in Jackson County
- visiting Nite Lites at MIS
- stopping at one of the local coffee shops for a cup of coffee/cocoa before finishing our holiday shopping at one of downtown’s unique boutique shops (Jackson, Grass Lake, and Brooklyn all make great “downtown shopping” destinations)
And if you’re looking for ways to gift memories this Christmas, considering giving the individuals on your holiday gift-giving list a gift certificate to a local restaurant, coffee shop, boutique shops, or activity/experience destination in Jackson County.
What are some ways you’re finding JOY this holiday season?
