Christmas Tree Toss for Charity Returns to Bethlehem

The popular Bethlehem Christmas Toss for Charity will be held on December 16 at 11 a.m. at More Miles Automotive, 1458 Stefko Blvd., Bethlehem, PA.

The original event was first held in 2002 when then Meineke Car Care owner Peter Kearns challenged Mike DeCrosta, currently of More Miles Automotive, to a contest. The resulting yearly tradition became something of a bizarre, but wildly popular, way to celebrate the holiday season. Peter Kearns passed away in 2016.

Snapchat Adds Ability to Insert Links into Snaps (and Some Other Stuff)

Snapchat has always been a bit difficult for smaller businesses to utilize on a regular basis due to its limited organic reach, 24-hour limit of content on the platform, and difficulty to directly connect with users.

At least one of those problems, connecting directly with users, has crumbled a little with the introduction of user-created links for Snapchat posts.
