The 2010 Holiday Almanac 


Checking Them Twice

Like the holiday decorations popping up at Wal-Mart, this is the time of year when lists start to take over our lives — lists of gifts to be given and desired, lists of people deserving thank-you notes and family newsletters, lists of party guests and where to seat them (note: Don't sit Aunt Martha next to MeMaw this year — it's always a disaster).

And so, we submit to the lists in this tinsel-y edition of Style Weekly's annual Holiday Almanac. You'll find compilations of things to do, see, buy and think about. And you'll find lists of what can get you in the spirit of the season. Yule be amazed at what goes on around here.

With its extensive calendar of events, the Almanac is also your one-stop shop for information on Santa's whereabouts, local traditions, light displays, elf-approved food and drink, trendy gift giving, seasonal movies, plays and music … everything but a partridge in a pear tree. — Don Harrison
