a merry little christmas

Have yourself a merry little ChristmasLet your heart be lightFrom now onOur troubles will be out of sight…Someday soon we all will be togetherIf the fates allowUntil then, we’ll have to muddle throughsomehowSo have yourself a merry little Christmas now The words to this song written in 1943 by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and sung by Judy Garland in the 1944 musical Meet Me in St. Louis, could not capture the sentiment of the 2020 holiday season more. As we all continue to muddle through without being able to see our loved ones this Christmas, hope is on the horizon, with two vaccines in the works for COVID-19. As many of us have grown tired of keeping our distance and wearing masks, we must remember those who have had devastating…

letters to the editor

Hi Nancy, I am a founding member of the North Shore NAACP (also its press contact) and also the interviewee of the article. I want to thank you for giving our community this opportunity and exposure. The North Shore seldom has opportunities to tout diversity and diversity advocacy in high-profile media like Northshore magazine, and just like our brand-new NAACP branch, your magazine is lending its platform to help our part of New England be seen as more diverse, embracing, and welcoming to people of all colors. This is so cool and yet another reason to love your magazine! We are trying to elevate messages of equality and diversity in our region and I thank you for sharing our story. Natalie Bowers, Founding member of North Shore NAACP Dear Nancy, What an unusual year this has…

visions of summer

Ever had a carmelized pineapple lemonade? Tangy, tropical and not too sweet, it brings sunny vibes to the darkest of winter days—something we all could use right now. It’s just one of the summery delights available at B&B Fish in Marblehead, the new counter-service restaurant from Jason Santos, the award-winning celebrity chef best known for his blue hair and Boston restaurants Abby Lane, Buttermilk & Bourbon, and Citrus & Salt. The chef’s elevated clam shack was originally slated to debut in June, but pushed back several times with COVID-19-related delays. But really, the timing seems ideal right now, as socially distant picnics fade into the rearview and everyone is headed back to potentially months of meeting friends on Zoom for dinner parties. B&B Fish’s cheery bright interior, matched with Southern-inflected takes on…

Hygge, pronounced “hue-geh,” is a Danish word that is for Scandinavians simply a way of life. It is the act of being present, slowing down, and finding cozy moments of joy, contentment, and calm, every day. This holiday season, we might do extra well to embrace the Nordic way. We are staying close to home, our gatherings are smaller, and it is ever important to rejoice in the little pleasures life offers. Let us consider wine a muse of hygge, and what better time than now to give the gift of wine? One need not be an expert in wine to make a good wine purchase. When buying wine as a gift, try to keep in mind whom you are buying for. Surprise them with a synonym wine—a wine made with…

a seaside home for the holidays

As much as I wanted to hope that the holiday season in Newburyport would happen this year, I wasn’t sure what to expect. As someone who lives in this small, coastal city, local circumstances are similar to many communities across the North Shore and beyond, and at first glance it seemed there was much we wouldn’t be able to do. I was almost hesitant to reach out to community leaders or shop and restaurant owners for fear of learning that the holidays might be on hold this year. But I should have known better because if there’s one thing 2020 has the power to do, it is take me by surprise. The more I asked, the more information I got, and yes, the holidays are here! The city of Newburyport has…
