The joys of Christmases past

With so many holiday events canceled this year, The Hinsdalean decided to share some favorite December covers from the past few years. Logan O'Connor picked up her poinsettia order from the Monroe School sale in 2017 (clockwise from bottom left), Samantha Warman had a successful visit to The Lane School PTO holiday gift shop in 2017, Gwyneth Cook anxiously awaited her autograph from Raleigh Benn of the Salt Creek Ballet production of "The Nutcracker" in 2018, Emersyn Bradford checked out the ornaments at Phillip's Flowers and Gifts during the 2017 Christmas Walk and - our favorite - Anna and Avery Brennan had mixed reactions when they visited the jolly man at the Hinsdale Parks and Rec breakfast with Santa in 2015.
