Tis the season for giving; such as the story about Zainabou, who has defied the odds after a brutal pit bull attack in June 2014 being treated to a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Also noteworthy, we celebrated ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ turning 50 years old. Can you believe it? Not to mention, the Tri-State is in full-on holiday mode!
From all the festive decorations and brightly lit trees to all of the fun traditional events, there's never been a dull moment. Here's this week's top photos from Instagram for the week of December 5, 2015.
