It all began in 2003. An all-star cast of Brits some known for their natural predilection to romantic comedies, others for their wit and a few purely for their A-list appeal, was assembled to revolutionize the rom-com genre. When "Love Actually", a film that follows a number of separate storylines t...

Some of the most famous Christmas songs come from Tchaikovsky's instantly recognizable The Nutcracker.The ballet premiered in 189...

Dear Cuffing Season,As the temperature drops from a temperate 70 to a chilly 65, girls are digging out their sweaters, guys are wearing flannels and people are pairing up. If you were to make a graph of temperature versus the desire to "cuff," as they say, it would just be a diagonal line. I can...

Back home in Seattle, my family celebrates the holidays by inviting all our relatives over for Christmas. Some years my cousins from Texas will visit, or my grandmother from Florida or aunt and uncle from New York – whatever the case, the Joslin household is never lacking an ounce of holiday cheer....

 While Rockefeller Center might seem like an obvious choice for a winter in New York, the Dyker Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn has an almost equally impressive display of holiday decorations. Each winter, my family and I make sure we catch every single house's setup. Displays include...

 Hidden among the vast cornfields of Ohio are the lesser-known caves, waterfalls and other natural and historical preserves. One of these is Clifton Mill, a historical site especially known for its "legendary" Christmas light display that my family often visits in December. Every hour, on the ho...

Living in New Orleans for most of the year, one of the things I miss most about Chicago is what I believe to be the epitome of wintertime: snow. As a child, every year my parents would take me to the snowy wonderland that is Navy Pier's Fifth Third Bank Winter Wonderfest. There we would ice skate and drink hot...

 December in New Jersey is my favorite because it's when all the Jews come out to play. A New Jersey Christmas starts with a trip to the Loews AMC movie theater where we say "hello" to every other family who attends our synagogue. That's usually followed with a snuggly stroll down quiet streets...

Christmas in Louisiana typically requires a tank top and a pair of Nike shorts, but the fickle and humid weather does not keep us from enjoying the most wonderful time of the year. One tradition for Louisiana residents is to travel to Natchitoches for the Light Festival along the Cane River, which is accompa...

Because snow is not a thing, and the coldest it'll get on December 25th is 75 degrees, one is often left to turn on the fireplace and relax. Since we're in California, the Bay Area usually makes Christmas Day a "smoke-free" day, which means you don't actually turn on the fireplace. Instead, you turn on ...

Other than the delicious food my mom and aunties make for our family's celebration on Christmas Eve, my favorite New Mexican Christmas tradition is setting out luminarias, which are lanterns made out of a brown paper bag, a candle and some sand. People line their fences and driveways with them, and in...
