With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events - and just plain fun questions.
You might find us anywhere around the island with a camera and note pad, asking simple questions and looking for thoughtful answers. If we find you, we hope you will want to participate.
At the Hilton Head Island Concours d'Elegance and Motoring Festival, we asked: "What sign or indication of the upcoming holiday season would you like to see go away?"
Brandon Stevens, Bluffton: "Thanksgiving needs to get more attention. It seems like we skip from Halloween right to Christmas."
Diana Leyva, Houston, Texas: "Christmas before Halloween is too much. There's Thanksgiving too - we should be grateful."
Andrew Farbman, Hilton Head Island: "I could do without the pressure of giving gifts at a particular time. We end up buying things that someone doesn't really want or need."
Charles Sackett, Hilton Head Island: "People playing Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas' before Halloween."
Dean Sackett, Hilton Head Island: "I saw a wine bottle display at a local store - bottles stacked up to look like a Christmas tree - before Halloween. That's a little much."
