'Tis a wonderful season, what with carolers crooning, cas registers ringing and folks getting that slightly crazed, holidazed feeling. We'll try to help -- or at least give you a few seasonal laughs along the way -- in The Sun.
It's 1 in the morning, you're sloppily slapping wrapping on Gift #97, and there's no end in sight. What happened to that warm, giving glow, you wonder, that goodwill-toward-humankind feeling, that holly jolly spirit? It's lost among the scissors, bows and tape.
But never fear. Boy Scout Troop 485 is here, a beacon of hope for the wrapping-weary. You can restore your seasonal spirits and indulge in the warm feeling of goodwill by visiting their wrapping station next to Macy's in Hunt Valley Mall. Staffed by Scouts and Scout mothers, the station will wrap anything you take to it from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m Monday through Saturday; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. The $1 to $4 fee benefits the troop.
