9 Tips for Eco-Friendly Naturist Vacations.
Ecological awareness, climate change and global warming have been hot topics for quite a while now. We would almost dare to call it a trend. It’s a bit sad when important things like those need to be hyped before people start thinking about them. Nevertheless, we’re happier that something like respect for the planet becomes trendy than let’s say Pokemon or Dr. Martens boots.

“I moved from Texas three years ago. I was way too nice at first. I was out here in New York trying to exemplify Christ, and people were taking advantage of me. I was getting run over. So I had to get more stern. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the same nice person, just more firm in my actions. Especially in the work environment. My first job was working as a recruiter for a retail company. And one day I’m on the computer, you know, recruiting people, which is my job, when my boss comes in and says: ‘You need to get to the floor, now!’ I was in shock, so I just did what I was told. But I knew the next time I’d have to say something. My job was important to me, but respect was even more important. Because if I allowed him to treat me that way, it was just going to happen over and over. And sure enough it happened again the next week. I was in the middle of an important task, and he gave me a command. There was no question mark on the end of the sentence. There was no use of my name. So I told him: ‘If you want me to do something, you’ll have to ask me the proper way.’ He was shocked. He looked at me like: ‘I know you’re not talking to me!’ But then he asked me the proper way.”
Winter Walk revisits downtown Hudson
Though the event has happened annually for the past 23 years, and has turned into a destination for out-of-towners, drawing some 20,000 participants last year, Hudson’s Winter Walk has prided itself from the get-go on a spirit of spontaneity. It started out as a way for a resurging urban area to encourage after-dark visitation, as antique stores and art galleries began to snap up vacant storefronts and industrial buildings one by one. Performances by modern dancers, a saxophone-playing Santa and the like, who used to appear in store windows on the evening of the Walk, have now had to relocate outdoors as the Warren Street corridor boomed. Some aspects of the event, such as the fireworks that cap it off, remain constant, however.
From 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 7, a mile stretch of downtown Hudson will be lit up with festive window displays, roamed by horse-drawn carriages, carolers, buskers and Christmastime cosplayers, with music coming from every arts venue, tavern and restaurant doorway and free or discounted treats offered by shops all along the way. Mr. & Mrs. Claus hold court at Hudson Hall. There’s plenty of kid-friendly activities, so bundle up the whole family to be ready for a full evening of fun – and arrive early to find a good parking spot nearby, as Warren Street will be closed to traffic. Municipal parking lots can be found on Columbia, Union and Warren Streets, at the John L. Edwards Elementary School, the Consolidated Firehouse at Seventh and Washington and the Henry Hudson Riverfront Park. County lots on Columbia and State Streets will also be available.
