BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Bernie Stotler taught his children that Christmas is about giving, and he considered decorating for the holiday a way of giving to kids of all ages. After nearly half a century of lighting up the December nights, Bernie passed away in August. Now his daughters ? Kim Pittman, Bea Shaw and Karen Barker ? are carrying on the tradition, creating Bernie's Winter Wonderland in his honor. "Christmas was his favorite day of the year," said Pittman. "He would have hated it if we didn't do it. " And so, in October, as their father did for so many years, they began putting up the Christmas decorations.

ICE! is a kind of art gallery at Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville. It is one of the most beautiful, interesting and coldest places I've ever been. Artisans sculpted about 1.5 million pounds of ice into fabulous shapes, sizes and designs. It is a seasonal show opening around Thanksgiving and ending Jan. 2. More than 10,000 people go through it annually, but it is not the same show each year.

andrews@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - This year's holiday party at Western Maryland Hospital Center in Hagerstown featured puppets, crooning and even closed-circuit TV.

Linn Hendershot, the center's communications director.
