Merry Christmas, Wesolych Swiat Bozego Narodzenia, Felice Navidad, Joyeux Noël, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Sretan Bozic and Kala Christouyenna!*


As a tribute to all of you, next door, down the street, up the boulevard, on the other side of the train tracks and to you who come to our site from all over the world, we at Our Urban Times extend a very joyous and happy Christmas 2012 with wishes for a happy peaceful 2013.

Our "neck of the woods," Chicago's West Town community with the hottest neighborhoods in the city, is filled with fascinating wonderful people, businesses,  institutions and locations which deserve to have local reporting by local writers who care about the future and the past. Writers who are engaged with the community and believe it is important to get the story right the first time. Our Urban Times is pleased to be able to help make that happen.

We thank you for your readership. It is our privilege to be able to bring you the news and information that reflects the vibrant, invigorating and sometimes maddening place in which we live and work. We are doubly pleased that so many come to visit from around the world…this year, so far, 135 countries and territories! We would love to hear from you. In fact, we would love to hear from those right here too!

If we missed saying Merry Christmas in your language above, please leave your greetings below and tell us what we missed.

Here is a link to 44 plus minutes of a wide variety of Christmas music with photos and pictures that will transport you across continents and time lines. The Santa and reindeer photo above is from that offering.

Below is a video of a musical flash mob in Spain. What about that for an event here in our area in 2013? What do you think?
