My Holiday Picks
So it’s time to get into the Holiday season Savannah.. That means soon there will be a Christmas tree lighting’s, pop up shops and lots of parties. Well every year to capture all of the wonderment of the holidays I decide to do Something Festive, Something New and Something Charitable! A season filled with music, laughter and giving! It’s my gift to me.
Something Festive: Gift of Song
There’s no better feeling than hearing a choir sing your favorite traditional holiday songs. So this year I’m going the Savannah Children’s Choir Winter Gala at Victory North on Dec. 15th! The Savannah Children’s Choir, founded by the stellar and talented Roger Moss, is a nonprofit, community supported, choral organization.
The C.O.O Emily Salzer and a very thoughtful Board of Directors celebrate a tremendous year of SCC events and performances. The SCC have an outstanding new Principal Conductor Melinda Fraley and acclaimed Principal Accompanist Caitlin Frasure So this is one holiday event i will not miss!
Something Non-Traditional: Gift of Laughter
I’ve decided to work some laughter into the holidays. It’s not a ‘traditional’ thing to do but it definitely should be And by comedy I mean LMFAO funny and there’s only one person I trust to deliver the laughter to me and that’s comedy producer Dean Roberts of Phatt Katz Productions!
He ran the longest running comedy club in Savannah. He has also brought top comedians like Rickey Smiley, Eddie Griffin and late great John Witherspoon.
So this year I’m going to head to the Phatt Katz: X-Mas Comedy Jam! Saturday December 21st at Etta’s Southern Cafe…and I’ll be laughing all the way into the New Year!
Something Charitable: The Gift of Giving
Now there are many ways to share the spirit of the holidays with others! My friends and I will be participating in the 10th annual Reindeer Run 2019!
It’s a chance to help raise funds and awareness for the Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal Empire. Executive Director, D.L. Williams does an amazing job of getting everyone out to support, give, volunteer or run at the event!
Last year I saw local Celebs like Bassist, Maggie Evans running the 8k and bestie Actor/Fashion Stylist Ashley Borders skateboarding for the cause! It’s a chance to help raise funds and support the community. I know I’ll be there!
HOLIDAY SOCIAL MUSINGS
1 .Enjoy a tradition that connects you to the community like gathering for a Tree lighting or hearing a choir sing your favorite holiday songs–It gets you right in spirit.
2. If you find the holiday traditions need a twist – add a new tradition to the mix like comedy show — Ho! Ho! Ho!
3. Find your way to give: Give to a toy drive, Salvation Army or a community organization like the Savannah Children’s Choir. Take toiletries to a shelter – Volunteer at a kitchen to feed the homeless – Go Caroling at senior citizens – invite someone who has no one to xmas dinner there are many ways to share the spirit of the holidays with others.
