It's Christmas Eve. You're angry. You're estranged from your family. You have nothing. What better way to spend this day than at the 54th annual Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration? For three magical hours, you'll enjoy some of the finest, cost-free, live music and performances, Emmy-nominated and produced for Angelenos and by Angelenos since 1959, courtesy of the L.A.
