Jingle bells, jingle bells, turn that darn thing off! Pause to give a thought today to our friends, the turkeys. The price of natural gas is unnatural. When the lights go out in California, the world will be a dimmer place. The cardinal rule of the day is: No returning presents til the stores reopen. Merry Christmas.

Baltimore's Union Square Christmas Cookie Tour is often less about cookies than it is about the houses that open their doors to serve them. "These are Victorian houses, and they are almost always under construction or restoration," said Sylva Lin. "Everybody loves to come in and see the progress. And you get all sorts of advice. People will ask why you haven't finished the basement yet. " Chris Taylor, whose wife, Megan, will make about 500 cookies for visitors, said repeat visitors are the real heart of the event.

After dozens of specials and docudramas, we finally arrive at the actual day: the 30th anniversary of the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. And now that we're only a few days from Thanksgiving, what's the next wave of inevitable TV programming? You guessed it . . . Christmas specials. Sure enough, look at what TBS is presenting tonight as its prime time movie.* "Beethoven" (8-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- This 1992 dog of a movie is Verdi, Verdi bad. Watch, though, for Bonnie Hunt of "The Building" as Charles Grodin's co-star.

Thanks to helpers at tree-lighting fete The night of Dec. 2 was truly magical as I am sure nearly 150 people came together to celebrate the spirit of the season at the Tree Lighting Ceremony and Visit from Santa Claus at the Edgewood Farmers Market Pole Barn. It was festively decorated and bedecked in red bows and green garland with the sounds of Christmas carols in the air. Sponsored by our group, the Edgewood Alliance, we had a fun-filled evening of special speakers, a tree lighting, visit from Santa, and caroling.

Broadway conductor Donald Pippin led the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra in an engaging mix of seasonal tunes, Broadway and operetta classics and familiar carols at the orchestra's holiday pops concert at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Pippin, the music director at New York City's Radio City Music Hall and one of Broadway's more honored conductors, with Tony, Emmy and Drama Desk awards to his credit, is adept at bringing out the verve, warmth and sentimentality required in the pops realm.

In a chilling reminder that pain and suffering can find us anywhere, I was shaving the other morning when the the Singing Dogs' version of "Jingle Bells" came on the radio.This, of course, is the single most horrible Christmas song of all time.Sure enough, in a matter of seconds I could feel a dull pounding in my head. Then my hands began to tremble, to the point where I actually had to put down the razor for fear of possibly slicing off an ear.For those who have never heard this song, imagine that something has gone terribly wrong in your life and that you now live alongside a kennel, where three or four mutts keep you up all night with their barking.

Boston -- Until now, I had never regarded Christmas as a patriotic event. I associate the flags, the salutes, the pledges of allegiance with the Fourth of July, not the Twenty-Fifth of December.But ever since this Christmas shopping season opened, over the dead bodies of millions of Thanksgiving turkeys, the tune I keep hearing in my head isn't ''Jingle Bells'' but ''My Country 'Tis of Thee.''Politicians and their henchmen, the economists, are cheerleading us through the shopping days, as if we were buying war bonds instead of bangles.

There can be no question among reasonable people that the most horrible Christmas song of all time is the Singing Dogs rendition of "Jingle Bells."For anyone actually unfamiliar with the, ahem, lyrics, imagine three or four vicious mutts barking their fool heads off behind a chain-link fence.Suddenly a conductor in white tie and tails appears and taps a baton lightly against a music stand.With that, the barking takes on a hauntingly-familiar cadence that sounds almost like . . . well, you be the judge:"Wroof, wroof, wroof,"Wroof, wroof, wroof,"Wroof, WROOF, wroof, wroof, wroof."

As a chorus of tubas played "The First Noel" at Baltimore's Inner Harbor yesterday, Santa Claus started a fistfight with a figure he claimed was a Santa impersonator. The two Santas rolled on the bricks, swinging and clawing at each other as children watched, confused. "It's a Santa brawl!" someone shouted. But careful observers in the crowd wondered whether either combatant was the authentic Jolly Old Elf. One Santa, it seems, was wearing a gas mask, the other a skull mask beneath a red cap. And, when the scrap was over, the two Santas helped each other up - to the applause of 13 other Santas - some wearing sunglasses, combat boots and fishnet stockings along with the standard red-and-white coats.

Some of the instruments were squeaking. One girl didn't want to take off her hood because she had a "hair problem." Another girl, briefly, was missing her music, one of the cello players was moody and several students straggled in late. The music teacher, Anna Harris, was not the least bit unnerved by any of it. She looked out brightly at the elementary school students balancing their basses, cellos, violas and violins. "Can I see your beautiful, beautiful orchestra positions?" she asked.

For someone who pioneered the idea of a holiday "novelty" plant -- and invented 'Jingle Bells,' one of America's most beloved varieties of poinsettia -- John Fantom of Baltimore County is extravagantly humble. "It was all because of a chimera," he said not long ago with a shrug, and using a rare word to explain a rare occurrence in horticulture. Others call it a "mutation" or a "sport." By any name, it was a big event in Fantom's life when, back in 1971, a red poinsettia growing in one of his greenhouses inexplicably sprouted a leaf cluster, or bract, that was irregularly mottled in psychedelic shades of raspberry and pink.

CUB SCOUT Troop 459 from Union Bridge shared holiday cheer with residents of Brookfield Manor Resident Care Inc. recently when the Scouts read Christmas stories and played "Jingle Bells" on their trumpets. The Scouts' visit to the assisted-living home in Middleburg is an annual event that began nearly a decade ago, according to Pat Keeney, the Scouts' den mother. One Scout's mother said that her son didn't have grandparents close by and that it would be nice to pay a visit to elderly people.

RECENTLY I snapped on the car radio and found myself listening to the Singing Dogs' rendition of "Jingle Bells," which is the single most horrible Christmas song of all time.For those fortunate enough to be unfamiliar with the lyrics, imagine two or three skittish Labrador retrievers trapped in a burning building and barking frantically.L Suddenly the barking takes on a hauntingly familiar cadence:"Wroof, wroof, wroof,"Wroof, wroof, wroof,"Wroof, WROOF, wroof, wroof, wroof."The effect of all this on the central nervous system is incredible.
