NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 28: Shoppers pass by the Anthropologie holiday display (seen from the inside of the store) in Rockefeller Center to hunt for bargains the day after Thanksgiving, or "Black Friday," on November 28, 2008 in New York City. (Photo by Yana Paskova/Getty Images)
HOLIDAYS IN HICKVILLE: The trailer don't close on Christmas, and the stage doesn't empty, either. Hello Lover, American Fuse, and DJ Clint rock the Double Wide at 10PM. We don't know about you guys, but we're pretty glad this show is free right about now.
MYSTERY THEATRE: Jude Law makes any Christmas merrier, but it helps that he's co-starring alongside Robert Downey, Jr. in the anticipated Sherlock Holmes film that opens Christmas Day. (A friend clued us in on They Might Be Giants, a 1971 film about a psychotic guy who thinks he's Sherlock Holmes and that his lady psychiatrist is Dr. Watson. We'll be renting that one beforehand.) Check our Events page for movie times.
LINK UP: If you're like us and still populating your holidays with traditions, we want to share one our little family is taking on. Put on the appropriate tunes -- we love Ella Fitzgerald's Ella Wishes You a Swingin' Christmas -- and tackle that pile of scrap paper in the office; the receipts and mail trash that document the day-to-day of your year (or, heck, the wrapping paper you just tore apart.) Cut the paper into 2-inch strips and take turns scribbling a favorite memory from the year on each one. Use what Scotch tape you have left to make a paper chain, and you've got a decoration you'll want to leave up until New Year's. Make this Christmas a good one, dear readers.
