It’s that time of year again. You can always tell when Christmas is approaching in Louisiana when the high today is 73 and the low is 40, and somehow there are dead leaves everywhere despite our total lack of a real autumn. In honor of the most wonderful time of the year, here is a list of a few o...

As the temperature drops from 90s to 50s, all anyone wants to do is cozy up with a nice holiday beverage. But with the barrage of mixology choices for the holidays it can be hard to pick the superior drink, let alone flavor. Starbucks and PJs both offer a wide array of choices for all your pepperm...

Merely a week into December, winter is here. Yuletide caroling fills the air, candy canes adorn evergreen trees and holiday motifs are omnipresent. In other words, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. In the midst of this, however, we should not lose sight of the charitable spirit the season d...

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....

  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...

New Jersey

December 6, 2017

  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.

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...
