Merry Christmas

The Go-To team wishes you a joyful and relaxing holiday season filled with laughter and joy. Merry Christmas!

We wanted to share some of the traditions and festivities our team members are enjoying this week:

⭐️ Christy: “When visiting my parents during the holidays, we always bake cookies and deliver them to neighbors. It’s always nice to get outside on Christmas day and share some love… and sugar.”

🎥 Jacob: “My family watches a movie together every year on Christmas Day. This year it might be the new Hunger Games movie!”

🍪 Mikaela: “Every year I make baked goods and pass them out to individuals who are experiencing homelessness in our community.”

❄️ Morgan: “For over 12 years we have been going to the Carolina Theatre to see a White Christmas! I even have a White Christmas themed sweater!”

👨‍👩‍👧 Brooke: “My husband, daughter, and I wear matching family pajamas on Christmas morning and then four generations (my grandma, my mom, me, and my daughter) wear matching Christmas shirts in the evening!”
