While the past two weeks are a time for most people to decompress, take down and pack away decorations, and get back on track with their lives and diets following the holiday celebrations, those in the local Armenian community are still in the full throes of Christmas celebrations. Although most Christians celebrate Christmas in late December, Armenians do so in early January. Armenian Christians have always maintained the ancient tradition of celebrating the birth and baptism of Christ on Jan. 6.
In a world overtaken by electronic devices, children of today share fewer and fewer similarities with those of the past. That said, there is still one thing that shows up at the top of kids’ Christmas and birthday lists in 2018 just as it did in 1918: a bike. This past Saturday, the Burbank Assn.
Whether it be the mayor’s tree lighting at Burbank City Hall, the Holiday in the Park street festival that stretches through eight blocks of Magnolia Park or the New Year’s Day appearance of a volunteer-built, rose-covered entry floating down Pasadena’s Colorado Boulevard, Burbank’s holiday season is rife with traditions.

The Southern California fires are several miles away from Burbank. They are not moving in our direction and even if they were, would probably be no threat to us because of the recent La Tuna Canyon fire that burned off all the vegetation leaving no significant fuel bed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
