Elkhart Historical Society presents 'Christmas According to
ELKHART -- In early
November, the Elkhart Historical Society will present "Christmas According
to Hollywood." The presentation will explore favorite Christmas movies and
some little-known facts about them in an evening of relaxation, laughter and
a meal at the Wild Hare Café before the holiday rush begins.
The event will be on Nov. 9 at 5:30
Each Christmas we
immerse ourselves in sentimentality brought to us courtesy of
Hollywood. The modern history of Christmas has included many
sentimental, poignant and funny movies, from Jimmy Stewart in "It's
a Wonderful Life" to Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye in "White
Christmas." We enjoy watching Scrooge from "A Christmas Carol" and
the eternally optimistic, yet cursed Clark Griswold from "National
Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." Who can forget "A Christmas Story"
with Darren McGavin and the reminiscing about that first BB gun and
sometimes a "confession" to admiring or even owning the leg lamp
that gave McGavin's character so much delight.
The cost for the evening is $25 per
