NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Newtown celebrated Christmas amid piles of snow-covered teddy bears, long lines of stockings and heaps of flowers as volunteers manned a 24-hour candlelight vigil in memory of the 20 children and six educators gunned down at an elementary school just 11 days before the holiday.
St. Mary’s School students performed their Christmas concert Wednesday night at the school. The 27 poinsettias in front of the stage represent each of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting last week.
WORTHINGTON — Christmas is a time for twice-told and thrice-told tales. Oh, and even more. How many times through the passing of 20 centuries do you guess the story of the birth of Christ in the stable at Bethlehem has been told? This would be a total beyond comprehension.
Operation Christmas Child effort gets under way locally
WORTHINGTON — Htee Kee and her husband, Benjamin Brown, now live with their three children in a modest but comfortable house in Worthington. But growing up in a refugee camp in Thailand, Htee Kee remembers the wonderment of receiving a Christmas gift that came from the United State

My aunt had given me a pretty red dress for Maggie to wear for Christmas, but by the time the holidays rolled around, my little girl was 2½ months old and the dress was too small. I tried to squeeze her into it, but she looked like a stuffed sausage about to strangle on a lacy collar.
WORTHINGTON — For most of the year, their talents are scattered across the country — from New York to New Mexico and points in-between. But as each holiday season draws near, they are drawn back to their roots and the opportunity to spread holiday cheer through a unique musical endeavor.
They are the nine musicians of the Holiday Jam, a production that features “stories of the season, messages for the heart and music to lift the spirits.”
The Hip-Hoppin Elves perform as part of the Holly Jolly Christmas Folly program Wednesday afternoon at Prairie Elementary in Worthington. Kindergarten students from Lisa Feldkamp’s and Roxanne Kremer’s classes put on the production directed by music teachers Linda Van Westen and Jeanne Mammen.
WORTHINGTON — Jacoba Nagel and Roy Reimer are hauling out the holly, putting up the decorations and adding festive touches all around the town as they prepare for the Old Fashioned Christmas at Pioneer Village.
WORTHINGTON — For the past year, Love In the Name of Christ has been identifying and evaluating needs in the local community and finding resources through its partner churches and existing agencies to meet them.
Now, to further highlight its role in the community, Love INC is planning a Christmas Tree Forest event to usher in the holiday season.
