Somewhere in the night, my throat lost its protective coating, leaving it raw and incredibly painful each time I cough. Therefore, I won't be attending this today:
Experience the magical sights and sounds of Christmas at the Festival of Trees! The Festival of Trees has become a tradition of Winston-Salem’s holiday events while raising much needed money for programs at Brenner Children’s Hospital. Visitors stroll through a winter village full of decorated trees, magnificent gingerbread houses, an assortment of specialty shops, and an array of children’s activities. There are celebrity ornaments and gingerbread houses sold through silent auction and wreaths and mini-trees to purchase. The main stage features continuous live entertainment and attracts people of all ages. Be sure to mark your calendar for this wonderful event for the whole family!
But you should.
