How many times have you heard about the "War on Christmas" over the years, particularly from conservative commentators? During the past decade, concerned parties on both sides of the spectrum have argued and yelled and screamed at the top of their lungs about the War on Christmas, what it means, and how society is crumbling under the weight of "Christmas censorship. " How often do you hear about things like "Holiday Trees" for example? Perhaps you heard about this year's controversy:  the U.S. Postal Service decision to create a series of "Holiday Stamps" that featured content relevant to Hanukkah and Kwanzaa but omitted a stamp dedicated to Christmas.

I HAVE TO CONFESS, IT WAS my daughter who introduced me to A Christmas Story, the movie about Ralphie Parker's quest for the BB gun even Santa thinks is a bad idea: "You'll shoot your eye out, kid." She asked for a copy several Christmases ago and, for a while, I thought she had had a conversion experience and was asking for a dramatization of the Nativity. My feelings were kind of hurt. I'd prided myself in my comprehensive management of the cultural literacy in the house - we had covered the classics from Sleeping Beauty to West Side Story - and here was a phenomenon that had gotten right by me. Now, thanks to TBS' annual 24-hour Christmas Story marathon that has begun each Christmas Eve for more than a decade, the movie is as much a fixture of our holiday as the ham after Mass and my husband's late-night gift-wrapping frenzy.

Christmas memories are tucked deep away in our consciousness for most of the year. Then something happens. The first snowfall, a favorite carol playing on the radio, a house lit up for Christmas ... and suddenly it hits. Those wonderful memories come flooding back. When it hits me, the first thing I want to do is dig out my favorite holiday CDs. For starters, I like A Charlie Brown Christmas. It's light and fun and the perfect music for getting the storage boxes of Christmas stuff from the attic - decorations, strings of lights and ornaments.

The best Christmas special ever made for TV is on tonight -- for the 26th time, but still as watchable and delightful as ever. Also on tap: a memory-stirring (or, if you're a bit younger, merely stirring) documentary about, and titled, "1968."* "A Charlie Brown Christmas" (8-8:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Right up there with "The Wizard of Oz," this 1967 animated special, based on the beloved Charles Schulz cartoons, is an annual TV tradition: viewers who watched it as kids, with their parents, now are parents watching it with THEIR kids.

Millicent Jordan vividly recalls the first aluminum Christmas tree she ever purchased. She was 22 years old when she saw the sad-looking little silver tree at a garage sale. "It was marvelous," says Jordan, 38, of Forest Hill. "It came with a rotating color wheel that changed the hue of the tree. I was fascinated by it." She purchased the tree - which she still owns - and 16 years later, it is part of a collection of vintage Christmas trees. Today, she is opening an exhibit at the Liriodendron featuring about 30 aluminum trees that are a kaleidoscope of colors, including green, blue, silver, blue and green, and pink.

ANNAPOLIS' official Christmas tree has been described as an ugly, out-of-place jumble. That may be a charitable impression.Rakes and pitchforks poke through the pine branches instead of candy canes and popcorn balls. Corn, soybeans, sorghum and tobacco replace garland, icicles, ornaments and tinsel. It's as if "It's a Wonderful Life" has been preempted by "Green Acres."Famously tasteful Annapolitans are aghast. Some contend this is worse than last year, when a mannequin in a rain slicker adorned the tree near City Dock.
