December Greetings from On The House!

Winter is one of our favorite times of year. Celebrating the holidays with family and friends; holiday decorating; special holiday meals; baking and snuggling up to a crackling fire are just of few of the things that we like best about this time of year.

Dreaming of a White Christmas? In this month’s issue of OTH Express, Rebecca Cole shares holiday family memories and tips on how to make your holiday table as Chrismassy as possible.

If you’re like us, every year you struggle to find where you put last year's holiday decorations—ornaments, garlands, candles, wreaths and table decorations. Finding them always is a challenge. That was until we discovered some nifty holiday decoration storage tips and tricks. Read on and you’ll storage struggles will be a distant memory.

Trimming a Christmas tree? We offer a few tidbits of holiday savvy that we hope will save you loads of heartache as you shop for this year's freshly cut tree. Keep in mind that we like freshly cut trees, but we also suggest that you consider a live tree and a synthetic one as well.

Depending upon where you live, home heating costs are projected to rise anywhere from 30 percent to 70 percent this winter. This is especially devastating news for seniors and those on fixed incomes who are already having a difficult time making ends meet. The good news is that you don't have to succumb to either high utility costs or poor living conditions if you are willing to make a few cost-effective energy saving improvements that we outline in this month’s OTH Express.

Fitness Guru Karel Nunnick offers up some great tips on how to stay fit and sane during the hectic holidays with ‘“The Tao of Sports.”

And what holiday season would be complete without some delicious fixings straight out of Dom Deluise's kitchen! Dom's dishes are the recipe for success for all of your holiday entertaining that involves food!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
