2. Review of The Girls of Salem

by Ceci LeBeau 1/24/19

This weekend, the Prana Center will feature an original play about the Salem witchcraft trials from the point of view of the girls who started it. The play’s author, Roberta Weiner, asks the questions, what was their motivation? Why did they do it? Fifteen talented seventh and eighth graders, fourteen girls and one boy, reenact this horrifying event in American history, and give their interpretation of this blight on the Puritan experience in the New World. Two shows are already sold out, but there are tickets available for the 1pm show on Saturday, January 26th at the Prana Center, 21 Charles Street, in Holliston.

10. A Christmas Eve Tradition

by Yvette Cain 12/24/18

One of my favorite family Christmas traditions, practiced for almost 30 years, our “Night Before Christmas Useless Gift” ritual (shortened to “Useless Gift”), no longer practiced but much discussed, still brings a smile to my face and happy memories of Christmas Eves gone by. In retrospect, it was a great, inexpensive, diversionary tactic for busy parents trying to assuage the kids’ patience on Christmas Eve. I share it with you to do with it as you wish.
