Latest Minnesota Holiday Season
We know you’re looking for the easiest and smartest ways to shop as we get closer to Christmas. This week, we are getting to the bottom of some of your holiday shopping questions. Gift cards are perfect for the tough people to shop for on your holiday list, but you should watch out for hidden fees.
Tuesday is the day for a Minnesota man who has set his sights on a world record with a holiday twist. Jim Brickson, captain of the Albert Lea Salvation Army, plans to be bell-ringing for no less than 80 consecutive hours at the Northbridge Mall in Albert Lea.
Anyone interested in seeing how reindeer behave this time of year can get a peek, anytime of the day. Animal Planet has set up a “Reindeer Cam” at Como Park Zoo. The camera is up and running 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you’re one of many Minnesotans replacing traditional holiday lights with energy-efficient LEDs and wondering what to do with all those old jumbled cords, the answer might be at your local hardware store.
It’s one of the most family-friendly events of the holiday season, and it kicks off on Friday as the annual Holidazzle parade kicks off in downtown Minneapolis. It’s a bittersweet year as it will be the final season of the Holidazzle in Minneapolis.
It’s the best time of the year if you’re looking for a great deal on restaurant gift cards. Spend $100, get $20. Spend $100, get $25. Spend $25, get $5. It’s the perfect way to say “thank you” to coworkers, or your babysitter, or a great gift for family and friends.
While many of us are looking forward to that big Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, there are thousands of Minnesotans who struggle putting food on the table on a daily basis. Marcia Fink with the United Way joined the WCCO This Morning show on Tuesday to tell us how we can make a difference during the holiday season.
As the weather cools and Thanksgiving approaches, people are beginning to think about Holiday decorating. Renae Keller from Renae Keller Interior Design talked with Natalie Nyhus about the trends to hit home interiors this season.
This morning, there are tens of thousands of poinsettias waiting to brighten up people’s homes for the holidays. WCCO-TV went inside the greenhouse at Bachman’s for a behind-the-scenes look as the floral experts there are gearing up for the rush.
A late Thanksgiving means the shortest possible holiday shopping season, but a local survey shows Minnesotans will spend more. The University of St. Thomas just released a survey that says people will spend more than they have in the past 12 years.
One Minnesota man isn’t spending the holidays shopping. Instead, he’s setting his sights on a world record. Jim Brickson, captain of the Albert Lea Salvation Army, plans to be bell-ringing for no less than 80 consecutive hours.
It’s the first day of November. Like it or not, with that comes the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. One early shopping event will be taking place Friday night in the Twin Cities. The people behind the event are entrepreneurs, but you can call them “fair maidens.”
Halloween is next week. Thanksgiving is next month. And right after that, many of us will be opening holiday gifts from our loved ones. But first, we have to shop for them.
