Maximum Christmas overdrive
Whether you’re staycationing or visiting the Gaylord, prepare for a glorious onslaught of holiday cheer. If the million-plus lights and 52-foot tree aren’t enough, how about the resort’s famous ICE! show featuring Shrek the Halls which they keep at nine degrees? Don’t worry, they provide coats.

Hey DJ, pump this party
The GayDays tour comes to town, bringing with it cutie DJ Randy Bettis. He mixes and remixes on tunes by gay artists Matt Zarley, Ari Gold and Briant Kent along with some diva faves like Britney and Adele. The party will give away 500 free music download passes. So go dance to the music and then take it home.

Steamroll the holiday season
Between Mannheim Steamroller and, um, Blitzen, the former may have more influence on Christmas, being the best-selling group for holiday tuneage. Sorry, reindeer.
