As the holidays approach, many of us are thinking of gifts for our children and family. Some may be considering the gift of a pet. The purchase of a pet is much different than buying a toy or clothes because there are many things to consider.
The diversity found in St. Louis neighborhoods brings a variety of holiday traditions to the table. Here, area families share recipes, music and festivities that have been preserved through the generations.
Story: In February 1964 the ‘British Invasion’ of pop music climaxed with the wildly popular quartet from Liverpool known as The Beatles appearing ‘live’ on American television on The Ed Sullivan Show. For the next six years, rock music’s most famous band churned out hit after memorable hit.
Choosing music for your wedding should be one of the planning stage’s more enjoyable decisions, and it should be done together as a couple.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. With the birth (and upcoming christening) of Prince George Alexander Louis, the line of succession for the British monarchy extends to a fourth generation. The Prince of Cambridge is now third in line to the throne after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father, Prince William. He booted his Uncle Harry to fourth. What could have been groundbreaking—but wasn’t—was a change in the law of succession passed by Parliament in 2011 that guaranteed that the first child of Prince William would become the ruling (regent) king or queen: This child was going to be third in line to the throne regardless of sex. The difference is, under the old law, had this baby been a girl, she could have been surpassed in the line of succession by a later-born brother. Since George is a boy, he’s third under either law—and will stay so—thus, things stay the same this time. Interestingly, primogeniture, or the practice of the oldest male inheriting a nobleman’s entire estate, continues for dukes and earls and other landed gentry.

It started as an innocent question one year ago to a long-time friend. Andrew Rehfeld knew the Jewish Federation of St. Louis had been looking for a replacement for the retiring president and CEO, Barry Rosenberg, and he was curious about the progress of the search. As his friend detailed the profile of the Federation’s ideal candidate, the associate professor of political science at Washington University was intrigued. “It sounded exactly like the sort of thing I was really interested in doing," he says. "The building of community—trying to inspire and move a community to a healthy and robust place where they are helping themselves and one another—was inspirational for me.”
