For tradition's sake

How do you celebrate the holidays? Do you get together with friends and family for lavish parties? Or do you prefer the quiet comfort of a movie and a hot drink? We're sure you have your well-loved traditions — the kind that you look forward to as soon as the leaves start to change.

Months of merriness

Whether it's celebrated in a religious, secular, or commercial way, Christmas has been the undeniable star of American winter holidays. But there's countless ways that people make merry during the colder months beyond hunting for the perfect tree, mall Santas, and stress-shopping.

Holiday movies and hooch

Local bartenders pair their favorite holiday movies with the perfect cocktail When I think of "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," one of the first things that pops into my mind is Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid standing over the bowl of eggnog, drinking out of those ridiculous glass moose mugs.

Market finds

Rather than risking big box stores during the holidays, flea markets are where the real deal shopping can be done The shopping season seems to sneak closer and closer to the holidays every year.
