By now you’ve made your list, so don’t forget to check it twice as we head into the final countdown to Christmas.

You still have time to pull it all together before the big day, which is one week from today.

The Miss-Lou, however, has been deep into the Christmas spirit for several weeks, and last week seemed to reach the apex of the Christmas season with caroling, cooking and other Christmas events.

Here is a look back at some of the past week’s good news items:

* Historic Auburn house at Duncan Park hosted an open house last week that featured baked goods smelling of apple, cinnamon and citrus.

People came from far and wide to enjoy the festive old-fashioned-style Christmas event in the beautiful antebellum house.

* Merit Health Natchez celebrated the hospital having performed its 1,000th robotic surgery, which is a milestone, not only for the hospital but also for the community that benefits having such well-trained surgeons on staff to utilize the latest technology.

* The Natchez Democrat closed out its annual Season of Wishes series of stories highlighting charitable organizations in the community that do good deeds, many of them specific to Christmas but also many that do good work year round.

Among the groups highlighted last week were Natchez Children’s Services, Santas for Seniors, Santa Cop, Catholic Charities, A Firefighters Christmas and D&J Youth Group.

Please consider adding these organizations and others featured in the series to your Christmas lists to help them do good work in the community not only at Christmastime but also throughout the year.

With Christmas approaching, this week is sure to be filled with more good news in the Miss-Lou. Merry Christmas!
