As we engage in all the fun and magic of Christmas, let us never forget to reach out to those in need, those who are struggling, and those who are lonely. GTP has put together a comprehensive guide of the most well respected and trusted charitable organizations in the world! There are 100 choices that offer all kinds of wonderful ways to give back.

Christmas In The City will once again grace the streets of downtown Biloxi on Saturday, December 6, starting at 10:00 a.m. The Arts District will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind Christmas village. It is the place to be for a holiday experience like no other! Get everyone together and bundle up for this wonderful weekend of family entertainment.

Nancy Baker Faul presents a unique perspective on two of the most beloved Christmas icons in all the world in our December Mover & Shaker feature! We hope you enjoy this fun, thought provoking article. Grab a bite at Skeeter’s Bar & Grill in Gulfport on Teagarden Road after a big day of holiday shopping. This Coast mainstay has been updated and remodeled by new owners, Vernon Wilson and Jennifer Mullins. Taste Buds will tell you all about it!

Coast women of all shapes and sizes can now be decked out in perfectly fitted undergarments thanks to Melissa Logos. “Foundations” opened in Gulfport in October! Melissa specializes in fittings from sizes 28 to 52 and cup sizes A to K. “I make sure every client feels beautiful, confident, and comfortable. The right fit makes all the difference,” she said.

The Coast is a showplace this time of year. There are so many wonderful things to see and do to celebrate the season. From the beautiful decorations and lights to the holiday shows at the casinos. Don’t miss a moment of it!

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and joyous holidays –
