There's not much time to squeeze in any more Christmas specials. But the holiday eve and the big day itself both bring a few memorable moments:* At 8 tonight on Maryland Public Television, for example, an encore airing of "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street" includes Big Bird and friends along with skaters from Hollywood on Ice. And MPT follows at 9 o'clock with its annual presentation of "The Nutcracker" ballet, as performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey...

It's Christmas Eve, and this year both CBS and ABC are offering televised religious services beginning at 11:35 p.m. Of the two, the NBC telecast has the biggest supporting cast and the best location: Its coverage of midnight Mass is live from St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, with Pope John Paul II. As for more secular offerings tonight, they include the following:* "The Harry Connick Jr. Christmas Special" (9-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- The title is refreshingly straightforward, and so,in a way, is this special.

This is a story about Christmas, a story about hope and the expectations of the season, and it takes place some years ago in the faraway land of New Jersey. A man and his wife and two young kids were driving from Maryland to southern New York state on Christmas Eve to spend the holiday with his mother and sister and her family. The man wrote a column for The Sun. A day earlier, he had knocked on his editor's door and, after the usual bowing and scraping, had asked: "Begging Your Worship's pardon, but would it be all right to, um, take a day or two off for Christmas?"

On Christmas Eve, instead of writing exclusively about money, I start off with two pieces that I feel are appropriate for this day.The first is a Christmas message I found in an old magazine many years ago:"This Christmas, mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a love letter. Share some treasure. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Find the time. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy.

It is Christmas Eve, time to ponder some of life's timeless questions. Such as where did all the extension cords go?During most of the year, extension cords are abundant. You walk into your basement or the electrical section of a hardware store and there are so many extension cords slinking around it looks like a snake scene in an "Indiana Jones" movie.But on Christmas Eve, when you need a couple of cords to light those historically correct candles that everybody else on the block already has put in their windows, all the extension cords have gone into hiding.
