San Antonio holiday activities kick into high gear Friday, with the Ford Holiday Parade.

Texas Public Radio celebrates the season with holiday programming to get you into the spirit, or simply offer a moment of reflection. Join us on KPAC 88.3 FM, KSTX 89.1 FM, and all of TPR's TexNet stations for a cornucopia of programs, including music, spoken word, and in at least one instance... the inexplicable.

The holiday season is full of family traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. So when you become an adult and want to start your own celebrations how do you start new traditions without upsetting those who created the old?

Tuesday night, observant Jews around the world attended Kol Nidrei, the evening service which marked the start of Yom Kippur.  Yom Kippur, the holiest of Jewish holidays, is the Day of Atonement.

Yom Kippur is the last of the 10-day period when Jews pray that they will be written into the Book of Life for another year. They also ask for forgiveness from family and friends.

Christmas has come and gone, and those visitors who have come from afar may be starting to get a little bored.  So why not get out and go see the town that many people believe is the most beautiful in the country?


While some places have irregular holiday hours, a lot of things don't, and they're especially great to go see over the holidays.
