Walking through a mall the other day, a store had prominently displayed a scoreboard count down. Days, hours, minutes and seconds. It took a short while to figure out what was the reason for this panic inspiring scoreboard. What was just 24 days, 7 hours, 35 minutes and 4 seconds away? 2012? Armageddon? The release date of the newest Harry Potter film? Sadly, no. It was counting down the days until Christmas — urging us to shop, shop, shop.

Because many shoppers are feeling the panic of getting everything finalized in the 20-odd days until the blessed event — calendars are filling up, parties to be planned and events to attend — Moonshine Ink is trying to alleviate as much stress as possible by revealing our Holiday Handbook, part deux.

We’ve rounded up loads of holiday-themed events for kids and adults, including a special list of New Year’s Eve events. Santa is busier than ever this year with pancake breakfasts, sledding, cookie making and shopping for charity. We’ve also got gift ideas for everyone in your life and coupons from local businesses to help you stretch those pennies a little bit farther while shopping locally. Lastly, we asked the elementary students of Truckee, Glenshire and Kings Beach what they would like to give to their town for the holidays. Replies range from poignant to humorous, and the coloring is top notch.

The next issue with our ever helpful Holiday Handbook hits the streets December 10.
