Your Getting Jolly Guide
Santa Claus is coming to town- tomorrow. You don’t have to be a believer to see him, because Saturday hosts the 2011 Santa Rampage that anticipates over 700 Santa suited, holiday spirited people on 2nd Avenue and beyond.
Forget about leaving out milk with your cookies, because these Santas prefer to wash down their Christmas treats with something stronger. Yes, it’s a Santa themed pub crawl and it begins at 6:00 p.m. at The Beer Sellar. Like most things Santa does, this event is underground, so don’t tell anyone, just put together your best Santa costume and join the fun on Saturday. Ho Ho Ho, who wouldn’t go?
Isn’t there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?
The Ornaments can, as they present a series of performances of a Charlie Brown Christmas by Vince Guaraldi. The trio of Jen Gunderman, James Haggerty and Martin Lynds will be joined by special guest soloists, December 13-17, and will cover this beloved Christmas classic. Most of the shows are held at The Family Wash, but there are two performances at the Mercy Lounge (12/16) and a Saturday morning show for the kids at the Belcourt Theater (12/17). Tickets are $7 and reservations are recommended at The Family Wash. Visit www.facebook.com/theornaments for more information.

Experience a Christmas tradition by taking in a performance of Nashville’s Nutcracker at TPAC, December 9-18.

I’m attending the Sunday evening performance and can’t wait!
There are so many ways to stay in the holiday spirit in Nashville. From the incredible lights display at Opryland Hotel to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular to Franklin’s Dickens of a Christmas (this weekend), you have no excuse not to stay merry and bright.

Just the day before, Terrah had similarly braced herself when her doctor told her, “I have some news.” It wasn’t good. A mere week before her wedding day, 30-year-old Terrah McCann was preparing for the fight of her life.
