  • On Good Things Utah this morning – Whether you do it early or after Thanksgiving, there is a reason why that Christmas tree in your house just makes you feel happy. Psychologists say the lights, the bright colors, and the nostalgia of the tradition all light up the sensory parts of our brains. So basically, it’s about time to bring out that mistletoe…
  • Plus, it’s the protein of the season, but is turkey actually good for you? Reagan has the numbers if you are counting calories this holiday. And here’s a sneak peek – she says it’s leaner than you might think.
  • Finally, the gifts that nobody wants this year. Yes, it’s the thought that counts, BUT maybe think twice before you give a mug with candy! Yep, we have the whole list that you should steer clear of this holiday.
  • At the end of the show, dust off those games and toys you’ve saved since the 90’s, Brian tells us they could be worth thousands of dollars. He shares which ones are money makers and which are probably ready for the trash. Hope you join us this morning for GTU.
