** Help make a difference this holiday season by giving back to the San Diego community. You and your family can help make a difference by adopting a family, collecting items for the homeless, sing carols to patients at a local hospital, dress up as a showman and distribute gifts to foster children, etc. There is so much we can all do. For more information call 1-800-Volunteer.

** Friday, December 19th from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, Nativity Prep Academy’s students will be performing a holiday theater production entitled “Jesus is the Reason” at Christ the King Church. Written by the sixth graders, this contemporary, urban musical showcases the students’ talents while entertaining audiences of all ages. Although admission is free, Nativity Prep suggests a $7 donation, which will help the junior high school to continue providing tuition-free, college-prep education to downtown San Diego’s underprivileged youth. Christ the King Church, 29 N. 32nd St.

** Teatro Mascara Magica’s award-winning ‘Pastorela’ is celebrating its’ 13th anniversary this year and the Mexican-inspired Christmas musical is better than ever. “La Pastorela de Felicidad” is TMM’s newest twist on the traditional story of the shepherd’s journey to Bethlehem to witness the first Christmas.

** “Los peinados elegantes volverán a estar de moda para estas fiestas del 2003. El clásico peinado recogido, junto con un color castaño cálido y ropa rica en colores y texturas, ofrecen un look de gran estilo con elegancia y sencillez. No importa si el peinado es alto o recogido en un moño sencillo o doble, o en un moderno estilo enrollado, o más atrevido, envuelto con una trenza o con la raya hacia un lado, el cabello definitivamente estará recogido y apartado de la cara. A medida que los estilos se hacen más elegantes, el color se hará menos cálido para lograr la imagen de sofisticación, con tonos de castaño apagado tales como Cocoa Harbor, Driftwood o Sable Cove de Hydrience, la marca de tinte para el cabello del hogar preferida por muchas de nosotras las mujeres hispanas.

Llevar el cabello recogido es chic y profesional para el trabajo, pero al añadir accesorios, aretes brillantes o un pañuelo o chal vaporoso en la cabeza o en los hombros, cambia el look rápidamente a uno de refinamiento reluciente, ideal para cualquier fiesta de noche o acontecimiento formal. También debe mantener la elegancia de los colores —esta temporada los tonos caramelo y ladrillo, vino y ciruela superarán los colores más vivos— y las texturas pueden incluir lana, diseños a rayas, cuadros escoceses, punto, con guantes cortos o largos, el accesorio del momento. ¡Felices Fiestas!
