2. Keep on givin’.

Adopt a light this holiday season for someone you love, something you wish for or in remembrance of a loved one.

The lights are on a fir tree at the entrance of the Frances Anderson Center in Edmonds. Donate $5 to post a note in someone’s honor on the main floor bulletin board. The tree will stay lit at 700 Main St. through Jan. 2. After the holidays, the tree will be planted in a park. Money raised goes to the city of Edmonds Youth Scholarship Fund for children to participate in Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services programs. Call 425-771-0268 to donate or to request a form.

3. Keep on tryin’.

The $10 Washington lottery “Holiday Countdown” scratch ticket folds over like a greeting card. There are 31 scratch boxes — one for each day in December. Or you can scratch them all at once.

Are you sheepish? For $1, you can get a “Baa Humbucks” scratch ticket for a chance to win $1,000.
