Cheers: To whoever treated us to lunch at Little Italy Pasta & Pizza at Loop 820 East on Nov. 21. My wife and I volunteer for the Salvation Army and we were wearing our Salvation Army vests because we had just come from visiting rest homes. Many thanks to you.

Jeers: To the Fort Worth powers-that-be for letting another tradition bite the dust. We can’t wait until the Parade of Lights is over to light our Christmas tree? Fort Worth’s propriety is evaporating before our eyes. Next year will we celebrate Christmas before Halloween? This isn’t Cowtown; it’s TinselTown.

hCheers: To manager Brad Goss and his employees at the Wal-Mart store in Weatherford for the luncheon for veterans on Veterans Day. Cheers also for the stop signs in the pedestrian crosswalk.

Cheers: To the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Andres Franco, Lindsey Branch and all others involved for sharing their talents on Nov. 10 at Our Lady of Victory Catholic School. They transformed our gym into our own Bass Hall, and the symphony played Beethoven’s music with such grace and elegance.

hCheers: To Ana Veciana-Suarez's article about shopping on Thanksgiving. I, too, refuse to shop on a day I look forward to sharing with family and friends. I feel sad for those who want to forgo that special time. Saving a few dollars against spending time with loved ones makes no sense to me. Retailers, leave Thanksgiving Day alone!

Cheers: To Honor Flight Fort Worth for providing trips to the war memorials in Washington for World War II, Korean and Vietnam War veterans. They provide a wonderful day for these veterans at no expense to them. Cheers also to the students and adults who write letters of appreciation to the veterans.

hCheers: To the woman who found my credit card at the Texaco on Texas 26 in Colleyville and used her smartphone to find my address, then delivered the credit card to me. She went out of her way — literally — and made my day!
