 Ask Mrs. Gift 2013

Dear Mrs. Gift, For the first time in more than 100 years, the first day of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving. Trying to figure out what to serve is giving some of us shpilkes. Turkbrisken? Sweet potato latkes? Pumpkin doughnuts? Can you help us figure out Thanksgivukkah? >More

 The consumable gift: Showing you care without filling up the house

When it comes to picking out a gift for me, my husband knows jewelry is usually a pretty safe bet. But when you open a new necklace or pair of earrings each and every Christmas and Hanukkah, not to mention birthday and anniversary, for 20 straight years, jewelry box real estate can start to get pretty tight. >More

There are so many Christmas specials and marathon airings of Christmas movies and borderline inclusions of feel-good classics that have nothing to do with Christmas (i.e., Mary Poppins) that even the undiscriminating television watcher will need to become in some way discriminating. >More
 Touring Madison's historic places of worship: University Presbyterian Church and Student Center

Designed by Madison architect Edward Tough, "Pres House" was completed in 1935, making it the youngest of city landmark churches. It has been judged Tough's best work. It has a mixture of Gothic and Tudor features, and its 70-foot square stone tower is a striking anchor for nearby Library Mall. >More
 Touring Madison's historic places of worship: First Church of Christ Scientist

Mary Baker Eddy organized the first Christian Science congregation in Boston in 1879. The movement spread to Madison five years later. After meeting in members' homes, then at Gates of Heaven synagogue, and then in the Women's Building, 240 W. Gilman St., in 1912 the congregation purchased a state Supreme Court justice's home on Wisconsin Avenue. The congregation built the present building there in 1929, next to the Madison Masonic Temple. >More
