As the folks of Columbus settle in for their assorted holiday celebrations, I’ll be headed to YES Cinema to see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for the 1:01 or 2:01 p.m. shows today.

In the midst of a busy holiday season, I haven’t had a chance to catch “Creche the Halls.” This holiday tour of the Miller House features the famous home decorated for Christmas and includes a selection from Xenia Miller’s creches collection. Reservations required by calling 888-718-4253 or at
