It's quite possible that, aside from turducken, my favorite thing about the holiday season is the wonderfulness that is the Salvation Army Angel Tree. Every year I select a couple of Angels and go on a shopping spree on their behalf, getting everything from sweaters and shoes to roller skates and Legos because, well, I can, and so should you. This year the Salvation Army Brass Band will kick off the season as they lead an indoor parade through NorthPark Center (Central Expressway and Northwest Highway), so hit the mall and snag a few Angels of your own. The parade starts at 11 a.m. Friday and will culminate at Santa's new crib for a story-telling session. Call 214-361-6345 or visit northparkcenter.com.
