Word on the street is that this holiday season will be one of the most successful retail seasons in years, leading many employers on a desperate search for holiday workers to help get them through this busy time. But not every job seeker gets the plum role of Santa—he has elves, and that isn't nearly as much fun.
We all know some of the best sales of the year come right after Christmas. So here's an interesting thought: Why not do your holiday shopping in early January and get more bang for your gift-giving buck?
Considered one of the last bastions of the old-school Brooklyn Italian neighborhoods, Dyker Heights is a quiet haven for families and elderly couples. However, for a little over 25 years, the neighborhood turns into a veritable Winter Wonderland every year around December 1st. Over 150,000 visitors from all over the world head into Brooklyn to see this unique Christmas spectacular.
If you're a Christmas fan, then you know that TV plays a large part in the Christmas experience. It's just a fact. Whether you're a Rankin-Bass traditionalist (hello, 'Rudolph's Shiny New Year') or a Grinch-head (you're a mean one!) or you just like generic sitcoms with Christmas subplots, Christmas TV is a holiday must.
Christmastime means garlands, garlands all over the place. When you see them hanging about shopping malls and your neighbors’ houses, you know the holiday season has arrived. As widespread as these decorative wreaths of flowers, leaves and twigs are, most people don’t really know why they’re associated with Christmas.
Huge news for Christmas music fans. The multi-platinum-selling soundtrack to 'A Charlie Brown Christmas,' by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, has been remastered and expanded with three bonus tracks and additional digital material. It will be available in stores this holiday season.
The holiday season presents a bit of a greeting conundrum. Do you say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy holidays"? This decision weighs particularly heavily on retailers, who want to use verbiage that encourages the widest swath of Americans to spend money at their stores.
We've all heard the Twelve Days of Christmas song, many of us fond of the Muppets version of the familiar carol. If someone actually wanted to buy the whole list of items in the song, how much would it cost?
Thanks again to Liz Chan, my special guest on the radio. Being a song writer myself, I can appreciate the amount of work that goes in to making an album, let alone a video. This is a great idea, iconic town, and great performance.
