How did your life collide with the headlines in 2007?

What's your holiday performance story?
The office talent show, the neighborhood caroling posse, the school pageant ... At holiday time we often sing, dance, and dress as shepherds. Did you bloom in the warmth of your audience's adulation, or freeze up like the snowman you'd rather be building? Did your holiday performance change your life or that of someone close to you?

A Long Walk
Erin McKittrick and her husband Bentwood "Hig" Higman are going for a walk, a very long walk. The couple will be leaving their home in Seattle, Wash., to embark on a 4,000-mile trek along the Pacific Coast through Anchorage, Alaska, ending at Umimak Island. They expect it to take nine months. They will walk, hike, raft, and ski along the way. Weekend America talks with the couple as they prepare to leave for their journey.
