It’s the holiday season, and no one celebrates it like Somerville. We spoke with the man behind one of the most-decorated houses in the city, took a look at the wide range of holiday traditions present within our borders, and tracked down wintry recipes from some of your favorite local spots. Plus we have gifts for everyone on your list from local artists and stores.

Apart from holiday hoopla, we have news on the city’s commitment to Vision Zero and spoke with the new lead reverend at First Church Somerville. We also took a look at how one store is hoping to make a big change in Winter Hill.

You can find Scout Somerville at more than 200 locations throughout the city (and slightly beyond its borders). Check out a complete list and map and of our pickup spots or sign up for home delivery, and learn how your business or organization can carry Scout here.
