I know everyone always says, “this year has flown by.” 2019 has come and and is about to be gone. I have always said the days drag on, the years fly by, and as you get older, it is all so true.
2020 has all the ingredients for being a great year. Local growth everywhere, great economy, low interest rates … and, oh, yes, did I fail to mention LSU is going to Georgia for the Championship. Looking good Cenla!
The Natchitoches lights are turned on, you’ll find the hustle and bustle of holiday traffic on the streets and in the stores, huge feasts are being cooked and those special recipes that only appear once a year will tickle your palate!
It’s also a time for giving forward and helping those in need. All of this makes Christmas my favorite time of year. It is also the time of year to remember your local businesses and retailers. Please try to shop locally whenever you can!
From my partner, Orkke, Hubert and Sabrina, and everyone who makes 318Central.com happen, we want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Make sure you spread some cheer and tell someone you love them. Happy Holidays, Love Ya’ll, Dief
