"Mele Kalikimaka" is the Thing to Say...

STAGE RIGHT continues its tradition of bring laughter to the season with "A Christmas Story". We know that the holidays can be stressful. It's nice to be able to relax for a short time. Even better if you and your family can have fun together in a safe, clean, and nothing controversial style.

Every culture has a way to "party" or celebrate. The Hawaiians don't really have a proper Hawaiian phrase for "Merry Christmas" and came up with a phonetic translation that rolled more easily off their tongues. The phrase "Mele Kalikimaka" was popularized in the song by Bing Crosby. Perhaps you remember the song and hopefully it brings a smile to you. Sometimes when you say something familar in a different way you are able to find new meaning or appreciation.

I have to work hard every year to make Christmas special. It's too easy to become jaded by the commercialism of the season. Relax. Take a deep breath. Try yoga. Do a random act of kindness. Forgive someone or tell the you're sorry.

I have delayed my Christmas holidays every year since I can remember so that our extended family can spread a little joy to our patrons in Montgomery County. It's hard work and takes some sacrifice. But nothing is more rewarding than sharing a little joy during this Christmas season. Join us at the Crighton for a A Christmas Story!
