December is a time of year when the lights are brighter, laughter is louder and gatherings are more frequent. However, 2 years into the COVID-19 pandemic, the holiday season is bound to look a little bit different. 

This December, The Riptide Magazine is celebrating gratitude for all the things that continue to make our lives Merry & Bright. From the people we love and the holiday goodies we indulge in, to the traditions, new and old, that we keep close to our hearts. 

Through a month of open submissions and articles that uncover so many facets of the holiday season, we’re proud to paint the town red (and white)!

With baubles and bubbly,

The Editors
