I do hope everyone had a great Christmas and holiday season. Now we are preparing for the new year that is just around the corner.

What do you do for New Year’s?

Do you make a New Year’s Eve resolution? Do you take a moment to remember the good things that happened to you this past year? Do you share your happiness with others and have a gathering with friends?

We would like to know and share your New Year’s Eve moments in photos and words.

We don’t have much of any plans this year, and we really haven’t for a few years. Sometimes we get together with friends, but we hardly ever last until midnight anymore. We sometimes watch New Year’s Eve celebrations on TV, and we have caught a fireworks show a few times in the past 10 years or so, but not nearly as much as we used to. I think it’s partly because we don’t recoup the day after as well as before, and because our kids are grown and have their own things now – and only one of them is still home with us.

Whatever you decide to do, I do hope you take the time to acknowledge how blessed you are and thank your friends near and far.


I would like to share how blessed we are to have this paper and to be able to do something that brings us so much joy. We love what we do, and it’s all because of you and those that come to entertain you while you’re here. It’s also because of the relationships we build with our advertisers throughout the season(s). We have had some for many years that have almost become like family to us.

So, when you visit one of our advertisers, tell them you saw them in the Winter Texan Times. Use our Taste of the Valley page to plan some dinners or lunches. After a long evening of dancing, or a hard day on the golf range – check our ads for a chiropractor or physical therapist.

Also, if you have some favorites out there that you don’t see in our paper, be sure to let them know about us. Take an extra paper to them and show them the why. We have some businesses that are still struggling since 2020, and I am sure they would love to hear how much you appreciate them.

It’s you that makes this paper what it is. We want to make sure we are representing you in our news and our advertising. So let them know about us and let us know about you.

Send your news stories, ideas, and photos to news@wintertexantimes.com.

Thank you and have a safe and Happy New Year!!
