After a long year, there is much needed holiday cheer and 2020 deserves it more than ever before! Even though this year has taken a toll of many lives, there were countless moments where families received that much needed embrace of support, where heroes were acknowledged more than ever and that sense of hope for normality feels much closer than before.
The rush of the holiday season leaves January feeling easy. Although the pandemic still maneuvers the current pace of life, especially those with underlying health conditions, families are still looking forward to making the best of what there is to offer especially during these winter months. However one decides to spend winter days, it is of importance to always follow safety protocols.

Surrounded by colored leaves and chilly days, The South Mountain Reservation transforms from green lush to a orange ombre effect as beautiful as the setting sun.

Forced to cancel some of the most sought out parades of the year, Hoboken and NYC will not be holding Halloweens parades.
