  • Party On!

    Never mind the sheep or the goat. I predict 2015 will be the Year of the Parties. That’s because there’s something special about 2015: the major holidays all conveniently fall on or weekends or abut them. Valentine’s Day, July 4th and Halloween each land on Saturdays, and Christmas and New Year’s Days both fall on Fridays, setting the stage for long weekends – and hopefully, lots of parties. Add to the mix lower gas prices, a rehabilitating housing market and an overall economy on the mend, and this year is poised to be full of pluses for ... More
