This year’s Christmas Connection marks the return of consumer events at the I-X Center. The show, which starts today and continues through Sunday, will be the first consumer-focused event to take place in the reopened location. There will be crafts, specialty foods, soaps, ornaments, wood creations, jewelry and more. Kids visit and take a picture with Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves.
