Kick start the holidays with The Nutcracker! (NYC Giveaway)

One great way to get into the holiday spirit is to watch shows or movies that are season specific, like The Nutcracker! I've always loved The Nutcracker myself, ever since we took a field trip in elementary school to see a live performance of it. This year, for one day only, Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker will be in select theaters, and in some, 3D!!

Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker features an amazing ballet troupe, the legendary Russian Mariinsky Ballet Theater.

If you're unfamiliar with the storyline of The Nutcracker-

The Russian Imperial Mariinsky Theatre was the original home to Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker in 1892, when it made its worldwide debut. Movie theater audiences will experience the marvelous talents of two of the Mariinsky Theatre’s rising stars – Alina Somova as Clara (Masha in the original Russian ballet) and Vladimir Shklyarov as the Nutcracker. Conducted by Valery Gergiev, this timeless production of The Nutcracker opens with a Christmas Eve party and a young girl, Clara, being given a nutcracker doll by her godfather, Drosselmeyer. Later in the evening when Clara sleeps, she finds herself in the midst of the Nutcracker’s battle against the Mouse King and his army of mice. Coming to Clara’s aid, the Nutcracker is transformed into a Prince and journeys with her to an enchanted island where spectacular celebrations are held in their honor.

Bear with me!!

Thanks for being a loyal reader of A Couch With A View, this semester has been kicking my butt!! Bear with me while I play catch-up over the next couple of days, and begin putting together an awesome holiday gift guide for you!!


National Toy Store Day is November 10th!!

We all know how important that it is to shop local. At least once per day, I hear a commercial on the radio reminding me to shop local and to support our community. I try my best, and sometimes the convenience of shopping big box stores and online gets to me, but I do try to shop local.

One great way of shopping local is to participate in this years Neighborhood Toy Store Day on Saturday, November 10th. This year is the third annual, and why not use it to get a jump start on holiday shopping? Shopping at your neighborhood toy store has a lot of benefits, you're able to find fun items that some big box stores don't generally carry. At the same time supporting a small business that needs appreciative, repeat customers.

Stores participating in Neighborhood Toy Store day will have special events going on as well, such as crafts, performances, discounts and more. With the chill of fall approaching, its a great way to get out of the house and do something different, since beach days are gone for the season.

You can learn more about Neighborhood Toy Store day and how to support it many ways...
