Hancock County families – get into the holiday spirit and get a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift 5-8 p.m. this Wednesday, Dec. 3, at the New Palestine McDonald’s Fundraising Night for Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Center.

Join “The Twelve Days of Christmas  in Indiana” author Donna Griffin for a book reading at approximately 6 p.m. and learn the Indiana version of the Christmas carol soon after the reading. Books will be on sale (while they last) for $10 (cash or check only). She will sign books anytime between 5-8 p.m.

In the “The Twelve Days of Christmas” cousins Darcy and Noah experience holiday adventures that criss-cross the state. To start a new Christmas tradition, get your copy of the book, read it with those you love and discover the joys and uniqueness of Indiana.

Don’t forget to share your Christmas traditions along with photos. My list continues…


My dad, Don Adam, reading to his great granddaughter Portia Finchum, above and to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren on Christmas Eve 2013.

Reading of “The Night Before Christmas” – This tradition starts with Papaw, my dad, and while we have recorded his rendition, nothing beats hearing the real thing every Christmas Eve – it is the moment that no matter what, I am transported back to being a child again, even while surrounded by my own children and grandchildren.
