Christmas cards, cookies, Coldplay and much more.

Christmas cards

The older I get, the more Christmas cards I receivein the mail. Maybe some year I'll be adult enough to send out my own.- Alyse Kordenbrock

I didn't know how much Columbus needed a throwback hip-hop station until we got one. Oh, and they're getting The Ed Lover Show in January? - Brad Keefe

This week I've been spending more time with the latest from the arty San Francisco black metal crew, which recently announced a rare club gig at Ace of Cups on Jan. 27-its first Columbus stop since 2011. - Andy Downing

Cookies

My "healthy eating" downfall at any time of year, but at the holidays they're everywhere! And I love them! Space precludes a listing of the varieties. - Jim Fischer

Coldplay

In the words of Joey Tribbiani, I'm not even sorry. I can't bear to hear another single Christmas song, so I've escaped into the intellectually flabby yet ear-pleasing world of Chris Martin and Co. I can woah-oh-oh in the car with the best of 'em. - Kristen Schmidt
