Get Your Holiday On.
No matter your religious preference or what holiday you choose to celebrate, traditions are what this time of year is all about.
Starting with an army of low brass this afternoon, Dallas continues with some of its most celebrated annual traditions today. So go out and get your holiday on.
Merry Tuba Christmas at Thanksgiving Square
The tuba section is definitely the Rodney Dangerfield of the marching band, but when dozens of the suckers get low, low, low, low, low this afternoon at Thanksgiving Square for this holiday tradition, they'll certainly command quite a level of respect.
Pharr's Christmas Extravaganza
One Farmers Branch accountant is so enamored with Christmas that he uses 14 miles of cords to turn his house into what he calls “North Texas' largest Christmas light display.” This year, it's gotten so out of hand, he's installed wireless control systems in his neighbors' yards, too. Yes, every house on his street has lights synced to the songs he broadcasts via his low-powered FM transmitter. Check out the Pharr's extravaganza for yourself at 14535 Southern Pines Cove.
The Trains at NorthPark
Last week, our own Brian Knowles gave you the low down on this annual Dallas holiday tradition, now in its 25th year. But you should really check out the sights and sounds of 25 trains carrying 100 cars around 1,600 feet of track for yourself.
Sushi at Steel
Did you learn nothing from watching A Christmas Story? Making last-minute dining decisions on Christmas Eve can be tough. Fortunately, today and tomorrow, Steel Sushi will be open for dinner and lunch. It sure beats a smiling “Chinese turkey.”
