Holiday Recommendations from Get Louder co-hosts Demetra Ganias and Cristina Young

Our friends, Demetra Ganias and Cristina Young share their LOOK Holiday Hot List with us.  We love that it is “family-centric” for these times that we are spending together.  We appreciate all the advice we can use to be better families together.  This is very much in the theme of Get Louder, which we tune into weekly!
