Today's show is chock full of ideas, tips and inspiration! We have simple ways to keep your home "company ready" throughout the season, quick and simple ways to get that cleaning done. We're also sharing strategies for celebrating those wonderfully frustrating folks who happen to have a birthday that falls near a holiday. Then Meg Cox, author of The Book of New Family Traditions joins us to talk about wonderful ways to celebrate the season, from nostalgic old world traditions to fresh new ways to enjoy your family and friends.

We'll wrap things up with a trip to Christmas Corner and some great gift ideas. We have a unique idea for Fido, another for the Big Band lover in your life and even something for the kids that will make mom smile. We'll also take a quick peek at a few ideas for simple handmade gifts for the reader or the entertainer on your list.
