It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! That holiday classic perfectly summarizes the sentiments and vibe of December. As I travel around Prince George’s County, I am warmed by the lights and decorations on homes and businesses and the festive community that they create.
I’m excited by the anticipation as people plan surprises for their loved ones or a few days of downtime from their busy jobs and lives. Most importantly, as things slow down, I appreciate the time people take to truly connect – with those they have not seen in a while, or those who could use some extra holiday cheer.
We have so much to celebrate, as our county is rich with sights such as the annual Festival of Lights in Watkins Park and the ICE! Exhibit at the Gaylord National Resort. Visitors from miles around come to our community for soul-stirring performances at some of our well-known houses of worship. And considering the variety of our businesses, including national chains and locally-owned enterprises, everything we need to celebrate the season is right here.
The song lyrics also speak to “hearts glowing when loved ones are near.” That is truly what makes this season. I appreciate all the support and well wishes I have received from old friends and new on this journey. You make my heart glow!
I encourage you all to continue extending this generosity of spirit to your neighbors and community members as we go into the new year. I look forward to a 2018 filed with hope – and promise.
It’s the most wonderful time to be in Prince George’s County! I wish all of you a joyous holiday and a great start to your new year!
