It is the most wonderful time of the year.
Everyone is gearing up for the holidays, even the businesses here in Gwinnett. The holidays are meant to be experienced through lights, trees and shopping. Christmas traditions are passed down from generation to generation, and it's what each person remembers when they look back on their childhood.
