    Holiday Prep

    It’s officially one week until Christmas Day and just four days until the start of Hanukkah.  One of my favorite things to give or receive is a donation to a good cause (a  bonus to this gift is it can be done at the very last minute and is still thoughtful).  For the animal lovers consider a donation to the Jacksonville Humane Society. For those who love food, share the joy with a contribution to  Feeding NE Florida. The news junkie may appreciate a donation on their behalf to WJCT, the local NPR station. For the religious, make a donation to their place of worship. For sports fans,  be it a golfer,  tennis player or a Gator, we have great local foundations to support: The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation, MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation, and   The Tim Tebow Foundation to mention a few. Or choose the cause closest to your heart and share it with those you love.

    Pop Culture

    The countdown is literally on for the last Star Wars movie being released this weekend.  Fan or not, it’s an impressive run. The first movie premiered on May 22, 1977!

    Another movie with staying power is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.  See it on the big screen at the San Marco Theater and then check out the recent cast photo.

    The younger set is excited about Harry Styles’s newly released album. His interview with Ellen is all the buzz.

    Finally, what would the holidays be without a Christmas special? New to the line-up is John Mulaney’s debuting on Netflix on December 24, and Casey Musgraves airing now on Amazon.
