A Final Word of Holiday Cheer from the Willamette Week Santa

A gift from us to you, Portland.

The holidays are wrapping up and 2018 is closing, but that doesn't mean that there isn't more cheer to spread.

No matter the weather or the date, we at Willamette Week are always working to bring you the news (remember the Snowpocalypse of January 2017? That didn't stop us!)—and that is particularly true of our delivery drivers who at the wee hours of the morning bring fresh bundles of papers to all the blue boxes and businesses around town.

One of our drivers, Taryn Zychal, shared a poem she wrote, thinking of her route on the night of Christmas Day.

Happy 2019 from all the Willamette Week Santas, Portland!
