Holiday Traditions

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS on “Good Morning Texas”

I was on Good Morning Texas today, talking about my favorite Holiday Traditions. If you missed it, just click HERE to watch it on www.WFAA.com. There were several traditions I DIDN’T mention though, like drinking the strong homemade eggnog my husband whips up every year and nodding off while watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Or the annual custom of crying over maxed out credit cards and never-ending Christmas lists. Ahh, the holidays! No, today we talked about fun stuff, like parades, pageants and festive ballerinas. OK, so there was ONE burlesque show in there but these are MY traditions we’re talking about. If any of them sounded fun to you, check out the list below and click the links for more information.

Want some REAL inspiration this holiday season? Go see a performance by the Dallas Street Choir. It’s made up exclusively of homeless people, who meet once a week to practice and sing their hearts out. Find one of their December shows by clicking HERE, then get a little sample in the video below. WARNING: It just might make you cry.

Also, do you think that the Marvelous Nerd Year’s Eve sounds awesome but you just aren’t sure it’s right for your family? Well, I can actually hook you up with FREE ONE DAY PASSES for Thursday (12/29). You’ll probably want to stay for all 4 days though, to hang out with Marvel’s Stan Lee (creator of Spiderman, X-Men, Captain America, and essentially all of your favorites). Jason Mewes from Jay & Silent Bob will be there, along with Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy) and the fabulous Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek). Click HERE to get tickets and enter the coupon code SAYSSO to get in FOR FREE that Thursday.
HAVE FUN and remember- if you DO happen to run into to Stan Lee, please get an autograph for me!
