Various Artists — A Blackwatch Christmas Vol. III (Holly-Tonk & Jingle Beats)


Indie

Joshua Boydston
Three volumes in and A Blackwatch Christmas yet again nabs a spot on the nice list, showcasing a smattering of Oklahoma artists with charming new holiday standards. This year shakes up the status quo with two themed halves — serving up dusty, countrified Christmas ditties on the Holly-Tonk side and soulful hip-hop carols with Jingle Beats, both with joyful returns.

It’s here again: the holiday season. We’ve already stuffed ourselves and given thanks at Thanksgiving and survived possible mortal peril on Black Friday and have come away with some one-of-a-kind cool local goods on Small Business Saturday and Sunday.

Wish Lists


News

Gazette staff
What do local notables want this holiday season? Well, Oklahoma Gazette asked ’em. And they told us. Imagine that!  We passed along these lists to Mr. Claus to do with as he sees fit. But for now, we’re reading the list — some of it twice, because it’s that good. We talked to everyone from adult film stars to leading conservative politicians to get insight — and a laugh — from our leading locals. Happy holidays! — Jennifer Chancellor

What’s wrong with Christmas?


Commentary

Brady Henderson
There was a time in America when Christmas was illegal. In colonial New England, the opening salvo of the socalled “War on Christmas” came not from atheists, Jews or civil libertarians but from the same Puritan Christian pilgrims who gave America Thanksgiving.

Thank Ferris

Take a day off in OKC.


Features

Greg Horton
When the character Cameron Frye said, “Ferris Bueller, you’re my hero,” he was echoing the sentiments of a generation of young people who came of age in the 1980s.
