Christmas traditions abound

The Boulder City Review asked several local residents and visitors to town what their favorite Christmas traditions and movies were. Here’s what they said.


Hannah Dey, 22, Boulder City

Just spending time with my family, and having us all together during Christmas.

I love watching “Elf” every year; Will Ferrell’s hilarious.


Michael Vincent, 66, Boulder City

I can’t really remember having a specific tradition. The holiday absorbs me so whatever we’re doing that year I don’t try and resist it as much.

“It’s A Wonderful Life;” I love that movie.


Bob McGrady, 58, Tulsa, Okla.

It seems unorthodox, but we always travel this time of year. No one is traveling so we take advantage of it.

Definitely “It’s A Wonderful Life;” that’s a classic.


Georgette McGrady, 45, Tulsa, Okla.

As a kid we always went to my grandparents for Christmas. As an adult I became a Jehovah’s Witness, so now as everyone is stressing out, we’re kinda just relaxing.

I have to admit I like “A Christmas Story.” I like how it pokes fun at the Christmas traditions.

Gunship Helicopters immerses shooters in high-impact setting

You’d think being belted in and sitting in a helicopter with its door open when it’s airborne as your left leg rests on a gun mount outside and you’re holding a machine gun would make you nervous. But it didn’t.

Schools report smooth first day

All four of the public schools in Boulder City had a successful first day of school for the 2019-2020 year.

Pickle juice adds zing to most everything

If you’ve been buying pickles, eating the pickles, then throwing away the pickle juice, it’s OK. You can forgive yourself. You didn’t know what you were doing.

Cure clutter with custom PVC racks

With back to school upon us, now is a great time to get our homes ready to wrangle all the extra school stuff that typically finds its way strewn about the house. Here’s a do-it-yourself project perfect for organizing, well, just about anything because you determine the size and spacing of the bins or totes.

Breakfast kits save money, time

What the heck? Didn’t summer just start? I just realized school starts Monday.
