Many of us feel like being extra generous during the holiday season. Here are a few places where you can donate unwrapped toys in the DFW in 2013: DFW Toy Drive locations.
Did you celebrate Thanksgikkuh this year? Hanukkah is early in 2013. It runs from November 27 through December 5, 2013.
Don't miss seeing the beautiful menorah at Galleria Dallas.
Today is Black Friday so avoid Best Buy and the Apple Store with everything you've got! Well, until maybe 4 p.m. when the crazies have gotten their goodies and gone home in sheer exhaustion.
Check out holiday classics like "A Christmas Carol" or "Frosty the Snowman." Or if something more contemporary is your style, then maybe "How the EDGE Stole Christmas" is up your alley.
Here is list of some of our favorites:More Holiday Concerts and Events in Dallas.
Happy Holidays everyone. Get in the spirit by doing something fun this weekend!
Shove the turkey and dressing in the fridge and get out the wreath. It's time to switch holidays -- if you haven't already.
My lights are already on the roof, the Christmas tree is up and I'm ready for the next holiday. All I have to do is switch out the brown tablecloth and turkey for the green and red tablecloth and the Christmas décor.
One of my favorite activities is to drive around all the great neighborhoods and look at the holiday lights and displays. I never miss cruising around Frisco Square, Deerfield in Plano, Highland Park and more.
Here are some of the best places to see Holiday Lights in Dallas! Grab a Peppermint Latte or hot cocoa and enjoy!
The Dallas Cowboys won their football game against the New York Giants today. Barely. So that means it's time to turn it around and get ready for another game on Thanksgiving Day in Arlington.
Speaking of turkey day, have you even started thinking about what you're cooking for the big day? Turkey, ham, tur-duc-hen? And if you're a Southerner/Texan, you're required to make cornbread dressing (here are like 25 dressing/stuffing recipes if you need one), homemade rolls and at least half a dozen casseroles -- and at least one casserole must consist of cream of mushroom soup. (Green bean casserole recipe here).
So if the Thanksgiving Day feast is at your casa this year and you're not good with baking a turkey or a ham, here are a few local resources where you can pick up a Cajun-Fried Turkey (delicious and just heat 'n eat) or a divine ham.
Or if you prefer to live the life of luxury and dine on a fabulous buffet where you don't have to do all the hard work, then here is a list of restaurants in DFW that are serving up a fabulous feast.
After the last few years of sweating over a hot stove, I seriously thought about just showing up for the Thanksgiving meal. But I will probably make the Sweet Potato Casserole, the cranberry sauce, and maybe even some Deviled Eggs.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

For many it's difficult to believe that it's been 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas this week. On November 22, 1963, JFK was fatally shot near Dealey Plaza in Dallas.
The Dallas Cowboys announced that DFW's own Selena Gomez will be the halftime performer of the Thanksgiving Day game. The Cowboys will host the Oakland Raiders in the annual Thanksgiving Day football game on November 28, 2013 in AT&T Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
Gomez, who is from Grand Prairie, started her career on Barney and Friends, before she was discovered by Disney. She is probably best known for her role in Wizards of Waverly Place, where she played a wizard named Alex. She's also known for her singing career and the fact that she used to date Justin Bieber.
Don't worry -- your kids probably know who she is.
So what do you think about the Dallas Cowboys' choice in halftime entertainment? I find it moderately amusing that they chose a singer where the average football fan is not familiar with her work -- and the typical Selena Gomez fan can't afford a ticket to the Cowboys game.
Sound off. Let me know what you think.
Here are some more great activities at The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth. Mark your calendars now.
Most haunted houses in DFW are open until October 31st but a few remain open through November 2, 2013. Have you had the ever-living daylights scared out of you yet this year? I haven't yet -- but if I could find the time, I would be there before you can say "Zombie Apocalypse."
