Happy Holidays! The snow continues to blanket us in its brilliant white (and I don’t think it has any plans of stopping.) This is GMA’s final issue before its winter hiatus and it is jam packed with goodies to enjoy during your workday! Thank you kindly for your continued support and we look forward to providing y’all with more awesome next year!
Before detailing what is in this issue, we’d like to feature the Tsugaru side’s Thanksgiving! Because their event happened after everyone else’s there were no photos to showcase in the last issue. However, the wonderfully talented Jessica Wiseman put together a lovely video that captured the spirit quite nicely. Here it is for your enjoyment!
