**The following is a press release from Cheerwine:
Southerners might put up their Christmas trees the day after Thanksgiving, but for some, the holiday season starts now: when Cheerwine Punch hits shelves. Cheerwine, the 100-year-old, family-owned soft drink from North Carolina, is announcing Cheerwine Punch's availability for a limited time—the "most wonderful time of the year"—across the Carolinas through December 31.
"Since before the 1930s, Cheerwine Punch has been a part of my family's holiday traditions for generations, just like it's been a holiday tradition for many families in the Carolinas," said Joy Ritchie-Harper, director of marketing for Cheerwine and fifth-generation founding family member. "It's an important part of our celebrations year-round, but this holiday season, we'll be toasting to the end of a special year: our 100th anniversary."
