At the great age of 91, I look forward, as Christmas approaches, to being with my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. It is their time, because Christmas belongs to the young. The little ones will open their gifts and with rapt faces, try out new toys, many unfamiliar to me in this modern world.Then days of my own youth return vividly to me, shared with loved ones now gone. I remember shopping with my mother, never until after Thanksgiving, when department stores displayed toys in Christmas-decorated windows.

If Christians like Garrison Keillor don't want Christmas hijacked ("Nonbelievers, please leave Christmas alone," Dec. 16), then they should keep it in their churches. Once you insist on putting it in the town square, in schools and everywhere possible, you have diluted the religious values you claim to cherish. We can barely get our children excused from school on the Jewish High Holidays, and Mr. Keillor whines about Jews who wrote songs inspired by Christmas. Sandi Brooks, Vernon, Ct.

A new holiday commercial for the NBA features Baltimore's Carmelo Anthony and other hoops stars playing a most unusual instrument: basketballs. Using nothing but bouncing balls, Melo and the other players offer a rather amazing rendition of the Christmas classic "Carol of the Bells. " Suppose it's actually "Carol of the Balls. " Behold: jill.rosen@baltsun.com @BaltInsider on Twitter

Here's working mother Vickie Berghel's Christmas checklist: Bake 1,000 cookies, buy 100 presents, attend three school recitals, hold an open house and take her three children to "The Nutcracker."But those activities can't match her holiday memories. Besides cooking, shopping and entertaining, her own mother, a homemaker, hand-sewed doll clothes, organized Santa visits and taught her five children to make Christmas crafts."I would love to be able to take the kids to more events," says Mrs. Berghel, 42, a senior partner at Weinberg and Green, a Baltimore law firm.

Each year, the staff of Baltimore ad agency Planit puts together a video Christmas card, something cute to send to clients and friends. This year, the creative directors got a little more creative than usual.  They ushered employees into a back room decorated with glittering trees and giant presents and told them to sing carols for the camera.  A few minutes into the song BAM! a guy wearing a scary mask and elf costumes popped out of the box. The reactions are priceless.  Some people scream.  One woman lurches off with a wreath around her head.

Folks convinced there's a "war on Christmas" should hurry to the Kennedy Center and catch a new opera that is as Christmas as all get out. We're talking Mary, Joseph and a no vacancy sign at the inn. We're talking a watchful angel and a bright star.  OK, so there's a unicorn, too. And a lion. And some occasionally cheeky contemporary humor. But, hey, the bottom line is still faith, hope and love, and you can't argue with that.  Washington National Opera, where cool things seem to happen more often since Francesca Zambello became artistic director, is presenting the world premiere of "The Lion, The Unicorn, and Me" this holiday season.

On behalf of the staff at Home Instead Senior Care, I would like to thank everyone who helped with this year's very successful Be a Santa to a Senior program, including Susan Reimer of the Baltimore Sun who wrote an amazing column, "Aging seniors need Santa too" (Dec. 8). The response to this column from the local community to our project was beyond my expectations. We had a slow start to our collection of gifts for 500 local needy seniors. Because of the generous people of Howard, Baltimore and Anne Arundel County, we did it!

Forget that namby pamby Elf on the Shelf stuff -- if you really want to get your kids to behave at Christmas time, tell them about Krampus. Krampus is a sort of anti-Claus, a horned beast who stuffs bad children in his sack. He brandishes birch branches, rattles chains and spirits away naughty kids to eat them, drown them or take them on a holiday tour of hell.   Krampus' tongue is forked, his hooves cloven, and we can only imagine that his matted fur smells like the remains of last year's Christmas roast.  He makes his first appearances in early German folklore, but seems to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance, as evidenced by this and this and this . From 7 to 9 tonight, Krampus will be terrifying children of all ages at Bazaar,  3534 Chestnut Ave. in Hampden.
