laurae@herald-mail.com A week after Hagerstown philanthropist Nick Giannaris canceled his annual Christmas dinner for the needy and lonely, a group of local doctors has stepped forward to fill the void. Washington County emergency room doctor Scott Wegner already had organized volunteers to deliver about 500 meals to seniors living in public housing on Christmas Eve. But his plans expanded further after Giannaris announced last week that his health would prevent him from hosting the popular Christmas feast at the Four Points Sheraton.

Hagerstown resident Mike Stoner's favorite Christmas memory involves a tradition that sent his children scurrying to bed in advance of Santa's arrival. Stoner, who recently was collecting money for The Salvation Army at Valley Mall, said that memory dates back 30 years, to when his children were young. "We would get the kids to the window, and I would go up in the attic with a bell and say, 'Santa Claus is coming,'" said Stoner, 69. "The kids would run and get in bed because they were sure that they heard sleigh bells.

WASHINGTON COUNTY marlob@herald-mail.com While many area churches are having elaborate and traditional Christmas Eve observances, few are using that as a reason not to have a service on Christmas Day, which falls on Sunday this year. "Not have a Christmas Day service? That is absurd," said the Rev. Ken Valentine of John Wesley United Methodist Church on North Potomac Street in Hagerstown. "No good Methodist minister would let an offering go by. " There will be a 10:30 a.m. service at the church Christmas Day, but Sunday school will not be held, Valentine said.

One tradition my family started several years ago was to go out Christmas Eve and try to find the prettiest and best displays. Now that our twins fly in from Colorado on Christmas Eve, that tradition has been delayed until the day after Christmas. I wonder how many houses use LED (light-emitting diodes) lights on their displays? According to my Sierra Club Insider e-mail (at www.sierraclub.org/holidays)
