What’s Your Finstagram? You Have a Finstagram, Right?

You’ll never keep up with all of the social media trends. No one will. It’s not something anyone should be tasked with or expected to do, to be honest. Besides, once a solid social media trend can be identified, it’s already old and worn out by the time it gets around to mainstream media outlets (See: List Articles.)

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.

Simply put, and with examples you can easily find yourself, the Lehigh Valley is an area that has every right to be on the cutting edge of social media innovation. So, that being said, here are a few ways you can expect social media in the area to change as we go through 2016 and beyond.
