and the traditional lighting and decorating of the Horton tree. Julie and Doug will be there, and Nathan Horton will read the Christmas story at the children’s’ hospital celebration this year. I don’t know where everyone is getting the idea that there will be no Christmas in Salem. It’s being written and talked about all over the soap mags, as well as posted on other boards. Unfortunately, Alice will not be in attendance this year, as she is in a sort of nursing home or private care facility. Too bad there, but cheer up everyone…there will be Christmas in Salem.
