Community members share thoughts of their favorite Christmas in the Dec. 25 edition of The Independent!

Images from the past and today show how Massillon (like most communities) has changed over the years.

The pace is faster. The now-paved streets are more congested. Traffic lights help control the flow.

Still, Christmas is celebrated in much the same way as we gather with loved ones, exchange gifts, enjoy a meal, attend church. 

We make memories and share memories on this day.

And we wish all a very Merry Christmas!
