It’s a Monday filled with merriment on the KELOLAND Living set as we’re joined by guest host, Emily Quinn!

Be honest, is all of your holiday décor up or are you still finagling with all of it as you set your sights even higher than Santa’s sleigh flies? If you are with the latter, don’t worry! We’ve got DIY Christmas stocking hangers and mantel Christmas trees that rival some of your favorite designer brands (but for much less!). Learn more in the link below!

Speaking of Christmas stockings, where does that tradition come from? We’re learning all about the root of many of our favorite Christmas traditions – Nicklaus Tag! You may know it better by it’s alternate name, St. Nicholas Day, but whether you celebrate in German or English, today is the day to celebrate!

No holiday celebration is complete without festive music. The Sioux Falls Chamber Collective is bringing an inclusive spin with a Hebrew piece we know you will recognize and an Armenian folk dance sure to make you feel like dancing.

Today’s guest host, Emily Quinn, spends her days teaching USD students and today she brings one of her specialties to us; public speaking! Learn how to calm those fears and connect with your audience.

Give your gift giving an artistic touch by shopping for local art at the Jon Crane Gallery. We take you to their Hill City gallery to show you just a few of these amazing art pieces and get to know the artist himself.

Tune back in at 2 PM tomorrow for another great show! Do you have any “Ugly Sweater” themed parties coming up? We’ve got a DIY for you that give your sweater an ugly yet interactive spin. Speaking of parties, we’ll show you the perfect holiday “mocktail” for any gathering. We sit down “Across the Table” from another interesting KELOLAND resident. This one has a strong South Dakota family connection we’re sure you will recognize. And we continue with our opportunities to give back to the community all on tomorrow’s KELOLAND Living!
