Sunday, December 26 is the first day of Kwanza, a holiday honoring the culture and traditions of people of African origin. It's also known as Boxing Day, a traditional time to offer gifts to the less fortunate; and Saint Steven's Day (Feast of Saint Stephen), commemorating the protomartyr of Christianity.

Friday, December 31 is New Year's Eve, also known as Old Year's Night in some cultures. It a traditional time to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another, with hopes of a pleasant and productive future.

Here's a few items of interest for those who enjoy a visit to the Redland Agricultural region, Miami's Bountiful Countryside. Make plans for a leisurely drive to the countryside to enjoy the beauty of nature -- and the calm relaxing pace of the Redland region.
