Harvey Swick is just 10 years old and already bored to tears especially in February, which is when British-born writer Clive Barker ("Imajica" and "The Great and Secret Show") begins this shivery, captivating fable-novel.Poor Harvey vows to curl up and die if he doesn't have some fun pretty soon. Just then the wind opens his bedroom window, and in hops an imp who whisks Harvey away to the beautiful gardens of Holiday House.Here, as in such children's classics as "Through the Looking-Glass" and "The Wizard of Oz," a "normal" youngster finds himself in a wonderland that eerily reflects the "sane" world left behind.

Cold temperatures, sleet and snow did not stop the nearly 200 people who came out for the Laurel Historical Society's Holiday House Tour on Saturday, Dec. 14. Warmly dressed people braved the cold to tour brightly lit homes and buildings, elegantly decorated for the Christmas holiday season. The event attracted newcomers and those who regularly take the self-guided house tours. "I've been coming for years because I love seeing the homes and the renovations the owners have made," said Shari Pollard, a member of the Laurel Historical Society, as she picked up tickets at the Laurel Museum, the starting point for the tour.

On the wooden deck of the Anne Arundel, an old Chesapeake Bay workboat, Marshall Blume cautiously eyed the shot glass containing a raw oyster drowned in spicy cocktail sauce.The Villanova, Pa., man is no seafood novice -- he docks a boat in Annapolis -- but this was a bit different.

When Niela Magwood arrived at City Hall yesterday, she found it decked with Christmas trees, evergreen wreaths and, yes, even a few boughs of holly. "I have never been here before so I am excited," said Magwood, of Baltimore's Govans neighborhood, as she walked through the front door and into its rotunda, where a band played jazzy interpretations of holiday tunes. Bright red poinsettias ringed the railing around the rotunda's upper floors, and a Christmas tree stood in the center, below the room's domed roof.
