Hey! Santa’s coming back to Rosemont. Yea, he likes us so much he’ll be here two evenings, and he’ll be collecting toys for less fortunate kids in the area. So mark your calendars for the evenings of December 5 and 6, from 6 to 8 pm, and come out to see him in the Rosemont Community Association annual Santa Parade and Toy Drive. We will have a route map posted here soon, but on the 5th he will be in the area south of Kiefer, and on the 6th he will be north of Kiefer. So gather ups some nice new toys and the kids of all ages, and come out to greet Santa as he goes by on a special sleigh.
For 30 years, Lee Sepanek has decorated his Phoenix, Arizona home for Christmas.
Over time, Sepanek’s decorations have become a local tradition, with people driving from all over the state to take a gander at his house decked out with dazzling Christmas trees and illuminated candy canes, he told AZFamily.
He even sold cookies and hot cocoa to warm the spirits of all who visited (and, of course, help fund his electricity bills.)
But there will be no lights at Sepanek’s home this Christmas.
Instead, for the first time in three decades, Sepanek won’t be putting up any decorations at all, he wrote on a GoFundMe page.
This is the way holiday lights are supposed to make you feel

History of USA Independence Day
On July 4, 1776, the United States of America proclaimed its independence from England by signing the Declaration of Independence.
While the signing of the Declaration itself was not completed until August, the Fourth of July holiday is seen as the official anniversary of U.S. independence.
Although Philadelphians marked the first anniversary of independence in 1777 with spontaneous celebrations in the streets of Philadelphia, the first recorded use of the name “Independence Day” wasn’t until 1791 and Independence Day celebrations only became common after the War of 1812.

History of Memorial Day
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in military service for the United States.
Many cities have laid claim to have begun Memorial Day, though President Lyndon Johnson officially declared Waterloo N.Y. as the birthplace of Memorial Day in May 1966.
While there is some dispute as to the origin of the day, the first was observed on May 30, 1868, under proclamation by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic.
