The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Tim and Patti Kaminski kicking off the holidays at the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land’s 10th Anniversary Jingle Tree.

It’s often said this is “the most wonderful time of the year.”  Holiday gatherings with family and friends, planning for a new year, cooler temps – I tend to agree.

In this final issue of 2023, we bring you some wonderful things.  First and foremost, the winners of our annual Readers’ Choice awards!  So many of our winners are small businesses in Fort Bend, and as we are out and about shopping this holiday season, please remember to support them.  As my friend and colleague Bev Carter used to say, “Let’s keep those cash registers ringing!”

If you are looking for some bubbles to ring in your holiday season, look no further.  Jeff shares the top 10 best-selling champagnes in the United States, and he blind tasted each one and shared his thoughts.  Cheers to that!

Cheers also to change, and here at Fort Bend Focus, we’re celebrating change in a big way.  This was the second year that we distributed Fort Bend Focus 100% digitally, and I’m delighted to share that our audience has now surpassed when we published in print!  Now, we are reaching more people than ever before – in so many different ways – with the people, places and happenings in our community.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our advertisers, readers, subscribers and contributors.  Without you, we would not be able to do what we do, and this time of year – and all year long – we appreciate you.

Merry Christmas to all of our Fort Bend friends, and my wish for you is that you get to spend time with family and friends enjoying all that the holidays bring.  As Buddy said in our family’s favorite holiday movie, Elf, “I planned out our whole day. First, we make snow angels for two hours, and then we’ll go ice skating, and then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie Dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we’ll snuggle.”

Here’s to snuggling.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Stay focused,

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government shall be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
