What in The Hollow Are You Doing This Weekend?

If you ate yourself into a food coma yesterday, the last thing on your mind is probably going out. But is there really a better way to work off those extra pounds than by getting up off the couch and moving? The holidays are officially here, so step away from the leftovers and let one of the following events kickstart the season.

While most malls have the standard cheesy/creepy Santa that your kids can get a picture with, we like one who is a bit more interactive and educational. Bring your kids to NorthPark for story time with Santa Claus. It’s at 10:30 a.m. today, through Dec. 23rd.

If you’re a history buff or would just like to know some more about our nation’s colorful past, local historian James V. Lee will  be signing his nonfiction works at the Lincoln Park Barnes & Noble on Saturday at 10 a.m.

As Dan mentioned here, University Park resident Christy Rost will be signing copies of her book Celebrating Home: A Handbook for Gracious Living, at noon on Saturday at Champagne’s Luxe.

Weekends at NorthPark are full of fun, family activities and performances during the holidays. The Christmas Celebration Children’s Choir will be performing at 1 p.m., Dallas Symphony Chorus will be performing at 2 p.m., and Emmy award-winning family entertainer David Chicken will be performing at 3 p.m. All performances are on Saturday in the NorthCourt.

If you’re a high school student, join Congregation Shearith Israel at Zinga Frozen Yogurt on Sunday at 2 p.m. for “ZoYo FroYo.” Fifteen percent of yogurt sales during this event will be donated to Zohar USY for Tikkun Olam.

The Jewish Community Center of Dallas is hosting an opening reception at 2 p.m. Sunday for social and political artist/activist Bernard Bortnick’s paintings.

If you’re like me and think that there are not many sounds more angelic than children singing, you may want to attend the children’s music program at Northaven United Methodist Church on Sunday at 4:30 p.m.
