Celebrate...the traffic light?

Ah, November, the month of elections and Veterans Day, the groans of Thanksgiving diners and the shrieks of Christmas shoppers the next day. But did you know that November also carries the celebrations of National Dark Chocolate with Almonds Day? Pencil Day? How about the days to celebrate the traffic light and the time clock? Let’s skip those parties.

Tax Free Treat

Those of us that will be shopping the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving will be treated to a one time “sales tax holiday” applying to all purchases. This only applies to the 5% state tax. Any others, like local option taxes, will apply.

Run, Gobble Wobble & Strut

Don’t forget the Turkey Day Run and Gobble Wobble sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. This annual event begins at 9 am and is a great way to make room for that second helping of pumpkin pie. If you’re still looking for a filling meal, there’s the Chitlin’ Strut in Salley, SC on the following Saturday. A road trip is always good for the appetite.

Road Trip!

If you’re looking for other road trip ideas on the Thanksgiving holiday Saturday, there will be an open house at Split Creek Farms near Anderson. This is the dairy goat operation that regularly wins top national honors for its cheese. They are having bluegrass music, folk art from local artists, gifts and hot ciders. Another favorite stop in the S.C. National Heritage Corridor’s farm tours is Emerald Farms near Greenwood. The “Holiday Spectacular” on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving features goats, llamas, a soap factory, and a spectacular model railroad.

Well, it’s official. The Art Institute of Charleston will begin classes in the Spring of 2007 in the Carroll Building on East Bay and Market Streets. The school will offer small classes of 16-18 students in culinary arts, graphic design, interior design, interactive media and photographic imaging. The school is private and will offer associates and bachelor degrees. This school along with Trident Tech’s Culinary Institute and College of Charleston’s Dept. of Hospitality and Tourism Management should more than adequately fill the void left by Johnson and Wales.
