 Tis the Season Christmas Shoppe 

Tis the Season is Ohio’s all-year-round Christmas shop offering guests three floors of holiday bliss full of collectibles and cheer.

MAIN FLOOR:
The main floor is divided into various sections creating a quaint village-like area. Small buildings have been built into the store creating such pockets like a log cabin with a working fireplace, an Alleluia Chapel with antique pews and stained glass, and a vintage room chock-full of adorable decorations and gifts for purchase.

TOP FLOOR/LOFT:
The top floor overlooks the main floor, giving you an opportunity to pause and bask in the beauty.

The floor is divided into sections: a large room of snowmen fill one area while another one offers holiday serving plates, teapots, mugs, and linens. Safari, tropical, and cartoon areas are also found on the top floor along with an impressive collection of snow globes, music boxes, and advent calendars.

Street lights line the area and each shop offers something different.

LOWER LEVEL:
On the lower level you will walk through a forest of trees, also for purchase. From small to large, pre-lit to unlit, lush green to primitive, you’ll find the perfect tree to fit any occasion.

Visit the Bethlehem Inn and find the nativity you’ve been looking for.

Ohio State athletics is permitting athletes from seven different sports to resume voluntary workouts after a pause due to an outbreak of COVID-19. 

Ohio State defensive back Shaun Wade heads into a workout

The university said that all athletes were tested Monday before determining that the resumption was safe. 

“These young people come from across the nation and the world to be part of our Ohio State family, and we do everything we can to create a safe, healthy environment so that they have a chance to study and compete,” said Athletics Director Gene Smith. “Our medical team will continue to evaluate, and we will share decisions as we move forward.”

The Buckeyes have refused to say how many athletes have tested positive, but longtime beat reporter Tim May had said it was fewer than ten. 

OSU teams with athletes currently working out on campus are football, men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball.

According to multiple news outlets, including 10tv.com, the beleaguered Short North hot spot Standard Hall is once again closed temporarily after one of its employees allegedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The original Facebook and other social media posts that led to the news reports have been removed from Standard Hall's social media sites.

Standard Hall was one of the first establishments to reopen once COVID restrictions were lifted and was immediately one of the first to close due to violations. It reopened just three weeks ago.

The state does not require a restaurant to close after an employee tests positive but strongly recommends it. In this case, two other Corso Ventures establishments are reportedly closed because the same employee was within both places: the Short North Pint House and Short North Goody Boy. The now deleted Facebook post supposedly said they were closing all three for a short time to deep clean each of the establishments.

You can stay tuned for updates here or on Standard Hall's Facebook page.
