Send a link to a friend

[October 09, 2012]  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 p.m.

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 person.

For reservations, call 217-947-2238. Reservation forms may be downloaded from, or pick up a reservation form at Horsefeathers in Elkhart.
