Are you in the Christmas spirit just yet?
If not, this weekend might change your attitude.
With December rolling in Saturday, several Christmas-themed activities are planned for the weekend, all of which are sure to have visions of sugar plums dancing in your heads.
So, before you head to the stores to get a jump on shopping, check out these local activities:

Saturday, Dec. 1

There will be Poinsettias, pine centerpieces, one-of-a-kind scarves, handcrafted gifts from around the world, and items from "Granny's Attic" available for purchase. Kids will also enjoy the church's famous "Cookie Wall" as well as a new room dedicated totally to chocolate. And, of course, what Christmas fair would be complete without Santa Claus?
Parking is available behind the church.
