Merry TubaChristmas

You've survived the crowded shopping. You've suffered through Jim Carrey's desecration of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. You've sat through tassled titties celebrating the birth of Christ, and ironic Nutcrackers and — shudder — traditional Christmas chorale music. You're near the finish line, so take this day to relax. Head down to Thanks-Giving Square (1627 Pacific Ave.) at noon for TubaChristmas, where you'll hear scores of local tuba, sousaphone, euphonium and baritone players regale you with Christmas carols. It's free to listen, $10 if you want to join in and toot your own horn. Jeff Baker conducts. Visit or the Dallas/Fort Worth TubaChristmas Facebook page for more info. When it's over, go home, drink something festive and promise yourself you'll be less naughty next year. =
