As the aromas of Thanksgiving dinner fade from people’s minds, thoughts invariably turn to the coming Christmas season. And while most people’s culinary dreams may have been met, it is rapidly becoming that time of year when lists are made and malls become inundated with folks trying their level best to find a bargain and fulfill their loved one’s fondest wishes.
The Reporter recently took a walk around Union City and West New York and sampled what is on local residents Christmas lists.
