To all of you from all of us here at the Shorewood Patch, happy holidays in general and merry Christmas in particular.
We say merry Christmas in particular because today is Christmas, not because we're trying to exclude anyone. No matter what you believe or celebrate, we hope you are happy. And if you are from Shorewood, odds are you are happy already anyway.
Why shouldn't you be? Wait — that's a foolish question. There's no reason to be unhappy when you're in Shorewood. But when it's the holidays, it just ratchets up the happiness to a much greater degree.
Shorewood is the best place in the world, and this is the best time of the year. We hold these truths to be self-evident.
What? You don't hold these truths to be self-evident? Well, we don't care. We're fine with you staying away. It just leaves more Shorewood for the rest of us.
At any rate, it was a great week. It was Christmas week. Let's look at the things that happened during it, just like we do every Sunday — whether it's Christmas Day or not — with the SHOREWOOD REWIND:
Ha ha ha the Packers lost
We brought you up to date about a Plainfield family's lawsuit against Shorewood.
Purported pornographer put off
A local man up on federal child pornography charges had his case postponed.
Is trailer for Drew Peterson movie the best ever?
And to all a good night
It was Christmas Eve. We hope you were behaving yourselves last year.
