The Holidays are a wonderful time of the year...even if they tend to start earlier and earlier each year. However, at least I did get a chance to get Thanksgiving out of the way before I got around to getting into Christmas.
As it gets deeper into the Holiday season, you might have felt the urge to participate in a few holiday festivities. Well, of course the "What's Happening Man" delivers once again. From shopping to helping the needy to downright partying until the break of dawn, I got you covered for your Holiday activities.
So grab your pen, jot down these events and go help spread some holiday cheer.
