CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER
 
November 28, 2014

A visit to the outskirts of Elllicottville or 20 minutes down the road to Randolph will prove that one day is just not enough to explore the many unique gift items and holiday events that the season offers.

As the days become shorter and the nights become colder, every falling snowflake is a reminder that the Christmas season is now upon us! While the retail craze of “Black Friday” has become a holiday tradition in and of itself, there’s another shopping day that is becoming more recognized and celebrated every year: “Small Business Saturday.” That’s right - instead of heading to the malls and giant retailers for Christmas gifts, more and more shoppers choose to patronize locally-owned stores in their own towns on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

As the saying goes … “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”  The Osmond family has been proving that for over five decades.  Three of the Osmond Brothers - Merrill, Jay and Jimmy - will be bringing the songs and memories of the past 50 years to the Seneca Allegany Casino Events Center in Salamanca, NY for five shows in May.

   It was on the Andy Williams Show in 1962 that the world got their first real glimpse of the Osmond Brothers doing their harmonizing barbershop routine, and from there they skyrocketed to success creating “Osmondmania” by 1970, when they could barely make it to their dressing rooms through the droves of wild adoring teenage girls.
