"White Christmas," the musical of love and snow, or rather lack thereof, is revived at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood from Nov. 22 to Jan. 1. Starring Brian D'Arcy James as the love-lost humbug Bob Wallace, Jeffry Denman as Phil Davis, his ladies man partner, Anastasia Barzee as Betty Haynes, the female equivalent of Bob Wallace, and Meredith Patterson as Judy Haynes, the female equivalent of Phil Davis. Davis and Wallace are old army buddies. Ten years after the end of WWII, they are famous singers, and they get a letter from another old army friend telling them to team up with a group he knows, the Haynes sisters.

The other evening I was driving with my girls trying to find a radio station that wasn’t playing Christmas music. The girls were all over me like a cheap suit. “Daddy, we want to hear Christmas songs!” Since I didn’t want a riot in the backseat in the middle of a traffic jam on the 405, in the rain, I relented. If I heard Brenda Lee singing “Rocking around the Christmas Tree” one more time, I’d throw myself out the window. I swear, I would have done it!

Valley View by Fereva I should be bereft. Instead, I'm oddly content. For the first time in nearly 19 years (20, if you count in-utero), my daughter and I will be apart this Christmas. She has accepted a temporary holiday stint at a department store near Berkeley, where she is a freshman - the catch being, of course, that she is committed through the end of December. I am proud of her industriousness, saddened by the break in tradition, and surprised once more to realize that my little girl has become an adult - or is trying to, anyway.

Happy New Year! I want to know where 2013 went. It passed by in a flash, just like a speeding bullet. Isn't there some way that we can slow down this train? My grandchildren are bemoaning the fact that they have to wait for an entire year before Santa Claus comes again and it takes forever to do that. At the rate that 2013 passed by, maybe I should start my Christmas shopping now! I'm writing this column a few days before the new year actually arrived, so I can't babble about how our adorable Rose Parade float “Dog Gone!

While the climate is far from brisk in La Cañada Flintridge, the temperate weather isn't stopping the Chamber of Commerce from bringing in its own white Christmas to the annual Festival in Lights, which takes place from 4 p.m. to 6:30 on Friday in Memorial Park. The festival will kick off the holiday season with seven tons of manufactured snow, live music, live reindeer and an appearance from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. Chamber President Pat Anderson said that the festival offers a chance for families to come together without having to buy a ticket or leave town, and to spend some time together.

This coming week marks the beginning of the holiday season in La Cañada with two festive annual events: On Tuesday, the 14th annual Glenola Park Tree Lighting ceremony; and, on Thursday, the 14th annual Festival in Lights at Memorial Park. Both events are expected to be heavily attended as, in light of the current economic situation, families are looking for fun, inexpensive ways to share in the festivities of the season. And, unless you opt to buy a food item at the Festival in Lights, there?

Clutter, stuff, baggage — "A rose by any other name," as Shakespeare wrote, although in modern times, I feel up to my neck in thorns. Some of this clutter is self induced, such as my proclivity for acquiring holiday ornaments. I may need to move out of my home soon and use it for seasonal storage next year. The holiday season begins with Halloween for me, although with a daughter in college, I confess I don't carve pumpkins any more. Instead, I have those scarily realistic looking faux pumpkins with the itty bitty night light/candle inside.
