Your holiday hustle is in full gear and the count down is on. Stop. Take a deep breath of that Noble Fir tree sitting in your living room (undecorated). Knock back an eggnog latte. Then head to the Old Mill District where you can pick up that sweater for your mother-in-law and sneak in some holiday fun and festive Bend events. Chelsea shows you how to fit it all in. Bring on the cheer! #HowtoBend
