How do you want to bring the holiday spirit into your life? Chances are, you'll want to do it in some way that doesn't involve sitting around in your pajamas eating leftover Christmas cookies and watching Holiday movies on repeat until the new year rolls around. Instead, you could volunteer at a local soup kitchen, do some shopping at one of your favorite local small businesses, or sign up for a race where you could dress as Santa or an elf or a polar bear.

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".
