Letter from the Editor:
The holiday season is quickly approaching and Collingswood is getting ready to celebrate. From tree lightings and ice carvings to gift guides and places to grab a bite, 08108 has it all covered.
Get a first hand look at the kick-off of the holiday season, the annual tree lighting. Not only is this event full of carols and good cheer, but Santa himself also makes an appearance with the help of the Collingswood Fire Department. (Page 20) If that isn’t entertaining enough, Collingswood also brings in an ice carver every year to wow the community with this fascinating art form. (Page 22)
For those who celebrate the festival of lights, or might be interested in a special kind of community gathering, a menorah lighting will also be held on Dec. 22 by the Chabad of Camden and Burlington County at the Lumberyard Garden. (Page 6)
While the holidays are mostly about celebrating together, it is also the time for giving. Collingswood has many different avenues to explore when it comes to finding the best gift for a loved one. Our contributor NJ Ackermann took time to discover all things Collingswood has to offer in the gift giving department and lays it all out in her Gift Guide on Page (10) .
After all the fun and games are over, residents can’t forget to fill their bellies. In this edition’s Borough Bites piece we jump into Nunzio’s by Chef Michael DeLone. Between their normal menu of italian dishes, they also offer holiday menu items and a special ingredient that happens to be the most popular menu item. See page (16) for more details.
The 08108 magazine is excited to let you in on all of the exciting things Collingswood has to offer during the holiday season. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
