Maybe it's just me, but it increasingly feels like, as a society, we are slipping into moral relativistic hell. Right and wrong seem more like a function of whether it hurts the side with which we self-identify than truth and morality.

We have a long tradition in our country of setting aside a day to express our gratitude for our many benefits. It began in 1607 when settlers in Maine had a thanksgiving service for their safe arrival on those shores. A bit later William Bradford proclaimed a special day of thanksgiving for the settlers of the Plymouth Colony as they gathered in a bounteous harvest. From Washington at Valley Forge to Lincoln during the Civil War, nationwide observances of thanksgiving were held. That tradition, unbroken to this day, continues now annually by presidential proclamation.
"Bah, Humbug! Scrooge's Christmas Carol," with the book by Rebecca Ryland and music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur, will be performed by The Phipps Children's Theater Nov. 30 to Dec. 16, on Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., as well as Sundays at 2 p.m. "Bah, Humbug!" concerns the life of Ebenezer Scrooge and his lack of Christmas spirit. It is this lack of holiday spirit that dooms Scrooge to visits from three Christmas spirits — Past, Present and Future. Ebenezer is shown his life and all of his past wrongdoings, his present misgivings and where his behavior could lead him in the future. He is awakened by the results his actions or inactions will have on others' lives around him, particularly Beth Cratchit's son, Tiny Tim. It is this awakening that prompts Scrooge to promise to keep Christmas in his heart if he can just have the chance to change his ways. This revelation is a good reminder to all. A multigenerational cast of 26 area actors will perform this uplifting musical adaptation of Dickens' classic ghost story. John Kunik is the director, Ezelda Hasapopoulos is the music director, and Chris Adam is the choreographer. Tickets are $21 for adults and $16 for children for this production in the Black Box Theater.
Operation HELP's annual Campaign for Kids still needs sponsors for 21 Hudson area families in need of help this holiday season. The program is geared to children. Sponsors provide gifts and other items to provide them with a good Christmas experience. Sponsors are also asked to provide appropriate underwear and socks for children, as these are items they need that are often overlooked. All items should be placed in a large, dark colored plastic garbage bag and clearly marked with the family number that sponsors will receive. Include wrapping paper but do not wrap the gifts.
