HAGERSTOWN ? Like Santa Claus acknowledging his reindeer, Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II called out each light display at City Park just before it illuminated. "The penguin!" On came the lights. "And the skating bear!" The kickoff to Friday's festival was the lighting of a blue spruce donated by Sara Dickey of Hagerstown. It stood at least 20 feet tall, smack in the middle of the lake. "We have the only tree that floats, ladies and gentlemen," quipped NBC25 weatherman Lou Scally, the master of ceremonies.

A steaming cup of flavored coffee or hot chocolate stirs visions of winter wonderlands and chatting with friends around an open fire. The ingredient lists on most hot beverages, however, reveal the less inviting reality of freeze-dried coffee, aspartame, whey, nondairy creamers, corn syrup solids, partially hydrogenated oils and artificial flavors. [cont. from lifestyle ] Still, if you are careful, you can enjoy hot beverages with considerable taste and comfort for relatively few calories (30 to 80 per serving)

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Despite a mix-up in the recipe that left them virtually inedible, the M&M cookies made the cut last week in Jayson Wetherald's manufacturing enterprise course and will be sold to students at Faust Junior High School. "They taste like saltwater," eighth-grader Erin Longfellow said of the cookies, who also noted they had the best visual appeal. That was because the student who mixed the dry ingredients put in a cup of salt, instead of a teaspoon, as called for in the recipe.

HAGERSTOWN -- The excitement mounted Wednesday as the chorus of young voices began its backward count in the children's section of Borders at the Centre at Hagerstown. "Ten! Nine! Eight! Seven! Six! Five! Four! Three! Two! One!" they chanted. The time was 3:07 p.m., but when you're 5 years old and hopped up on hot chocolate, it's a "happy new year!" all the same. This was the first year the Hagerstown Borders has hosted a New Year's Eve party, general manager Cathy Chouiniere said.

You ready? It's that time again - the time when holiday parties are in full swing. For many of us, that means the wine and cocktail tables will be getting plenty of action. As a matter of fact, according to national statistics, 25 percent of distilled spirits are sold between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve. Many of the season's most popular traditional drinks, like eggnog, buttered rum, and peppermint-schnapps hot chocolate share ingredients found in everyday desserts. Ingredients such as whole milk, cream, butter and chocolate syrup mixed with useless alcohol calories can make a celebratory drink into a high-calorie, power punch to your gut. According to MayoClinic com, an 8-ounce serving of alcoholic eggnog contains 391 calories, an 8-ounce serving of homemade hot chocolate with a 1.5-ounce shot of creme de menthe liqueur contains around 378 calories, and an 8-ounce serving of hot buttered rum has 292 calories.

daniels@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Red and white lights penetrated the night sky Friday night outside Shafer Park in Boonsboro, drawing the attention of residents gathered in, and shivering against, the cold. For a while, the lights did not come any closer, hovering at the intersection of Potomac Street and Park Road. Then, someone called out that the lights were moving closer, the crowd turned to look again and, in fact, the lights were moving closer. Someone else heard the faint sound of a marching band and called out. Others focused their attention on the lights, and as the Boonsboro Volunteer Fire Co. firetruck approached, the sounds of the Rohrersville Band playing behind the truck grew louder.

A steady rain began falling Monday night as city officials prepared to light a 25-foot blue spruce tree in Hagerstown's Public Square. A crowd of people showed up despite the chilly weather, and umbrellas bobbed back and forth as people took advantage of hot popcorn, and free hot chocolate and cookies. “By the way, it's not raining. It's just a heavy dew,” master of ceremonies Lou Scally told the crowd before the 6 p.m. lighting. With the flip of a switch from Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II and a group of Barbara Ingram School for the Arts students who helped decorate the tree, the blue spruce shone in the square to the cheers of onlookers.
