By Jess Clevenger – I recently came across a story about apple orchard wassailing and was instantly intrigued to learn more. I love hearing stories about traditions and customs of past generations and places, especially those associated with apple orchards. Apple orchard wassailing seemingly originated in cider-producing areas of England. Sometime in the winter months, most often in mid-January, a group of people would travel from orchard to orchard with their wassail punch.

By Paige Neidig – Growing up, my family and some of our friends would go snow tubing every winter. My mom would tightly bundle me up in snow gear, layer after layer, until I could barely move, but that didn’t stop me from sprinting to the tubing area to pick out what I deemed to be the fastest tube.

By Stacey Fox – Since winter finally hit in Pennsylvania, my husband and daughter have been taking advantage of their season passes at Liberty Mountain Resort, just down the road from Gettysburg, Pa. They decided it was time for me to head to the mountain with them and see if I still had what it takes to keep up with them. It had been 16 years since I had clicked into a pair of skis, and I must admit, I was a little nervous about venturing out on the slopes again.
So much has changed since I was last at Liberty. ... Read This Story
