The holiday spirit is in the air in Tooele County.
While the weather only recently started feeling Decemberish, it has been hard to miss the signs that Christmas is right around the corner.
Area residents have been hard at work decorating their homes with spectacular light displays.
Stores are bustling with shoppers looking for that perfect gift.
The annual local production of Handel’s “Messiah,” in its 30th year, is set for Sunday at Stansbury High School, the latest in a string of numerous local productions and events that includes Tooele’s Santa Parade and “The Nutcracker,” among others.
And the local children are doing everything in their power to make sure they’re on the “nice” list when Old St. Nick comes calling in a little more than a week.
