Just like seemingly every conversation we’ve had before, it started with our jobs, went to a little discussion on standup comedy and invariably ended on movies. From October on to February, Hollywood has given us a smorgasbord of […]
Alisa Boswell I could potentially be an incredibly cheesy person because without fail, no matter how old I get, I still get ridiculously excited about the holidays. But I like to think of it as me just being ‘a kid at heart.’ My family has always been one of those families with multiple corny traditions […]
Robin Fornoff Corissa Breeden was thinking about the holidays and servicewomen and men such as her husband, Carlton, who is deployed, serving their country and away from home for Christmas.

My sister-in-law, Ashley, and I seem to be developing a fettuccine tradition. Over the holidays the last two years, we’ve made chicken-vegetable fettuccine alfredo together.

Dec. 29, 1947: The Portales Daily News: Miss June West, instructor in English at Eastern New Mexico College, went to Denver and spent the remaining holidays with friends there.
The holidays make me acutely aware of all the special people in my life, even those that have moved to other bases or are back in my hometown. All of those mental associations that are normally tucked nicely in my subconscious spill over as I scour the aisles for presents. When I shop, I hunt. […]
