Still awaiting the forecast wind. If the weather leads to any changes/cancellations/postponements, as it did last Friday, we’ll include updates in our coverage (text/voice 206-293-6302 is always the quickest way to reach us), but in the meantime, from the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide and Event Calendar:
LAST ‘SHOP LATE THURSDAY’ BEFORE CHRISTMAS: Shop as late as 10 pm – many Junction retailers will be open until 8, 9, even 10! Here’s a list of who’s in.

‘BLUE CHRISTMAS/LONGEST NIGHT’ SERVICE: A tradition at Tibbetts United Methodist Church (WSB sponsor), 7 pm:
Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other disease that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations make parties and joviality painful for many people. If you are blue this holiday season, join us for a reflective service where we will focus on accepting where we really are, and holding out for healing and hope.
