Holly seems to be the theme for holiday shopping in Morris and Somerset Counties here in New Jersey.  Last week, I reported on our plans to participate in Mendham’s Holly Trail 2008, starting with Brownie Girl Scout Christmas Caroling at three locations around town in Mendham.  This week, my other local Recorder Newspaper, The Bernardsville News, has a special section about Bernardsville’s Holly Days celebration.

Bernardsville kicks off Holly Days 2008 with a Holiday Celebration of Music and Art on the evening of Friday, December 5th from 5:00 to 9:00pm:
