A Winter Note from Your Publisher

November 2022

By Sara Yaniga, Macaroni Kid Chicago November 19, 2022

First off - Happy November Everyone - I better say that before we blink and find ourselves into December. Again, I am always grateful for the families and businesses who help to create the Macaroni KID Chicago community!  It is so nice to see our group continue to grow and a lot of that has to do with you sharing us with your family and friends, so THANK YOU! I am grateful, to say the least. 

It has been a whirlwind since school started back this fall.  We suddenly found ourselves in a new routine and with a lot less downtime as a family, so I am definitely looking forward to this week off to just being present for one another. Maybe drinking too much cocoa, playing games together, and definitely snuggling up for a lot of holiday movies. I know that in the final weeks of the year, with the winter holidays and so many fun events happening around town, the next time I am able to hit pause we will be in 2023.

Finally, I would love to give a great big THANK YOU to the businesses in Chicago and surrounding areas who have helped me maintain Macaroni KID Chicago as a free resource for families, teachers, and visitors week after week. We are SUPER EXCITED to be sharing our newest sponsor in the coming months with you and your families - Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Concerts for Kids! They have a schedule full of concerts that are just perfect for kids and their grown-ups, so stay tuned to learn more about them!

We have a really fun giveaway from our friends at Swissotel Chicago just in time for some Christmas fun, so be sure to check that out, and next week we will share our Local Guide to Holiday Shopping - it truly contains some of the best of the best in Chicago!
