Neiman Marcus and Dec My Room Bring Holiday Cheer to Children Spending the Season in the Hospital

This year more than ever before, kids and essential workers who will be spending this season in the hospital deserve an extra dose of holiday cheer.

Neiman Marcus teamed up with Dec My Room to spread a bit of joy last week, inviting Santa himself to hand-deliver cookies to hospital workers at Children's Memorial Hermann on Friday. Additionally, Neiman Marcus filmed Santa reading a special holiday story, which will be available to families to watch in their hospital rooms all month long, and Dec My Room will be distributing gifts to extended-care patients throughout December.

For those who plan on doing their holiday shopping online this year, Neiman Marcus is providing a chance for some bonus festive fun: Santa will be delivering packages via curbside pickup every Saturday through Christmas. And the luxury department store has once again partnered with the SPCA this holiday season, committing to a monetary donation as well as encouraging Houstonians to adopt pets that can be viewed at kiosks around the store.

THE BIG BASHES may have been canceled, but here are the most Insta-worthy Mardi Gras treats you can enjoy at home. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

COMMON BOND There's nothing common about the King Cakes at Common Bond this year! Chef David Berg, the cult-classic bakery chain's executive pastry chef, is delighting Houstonians with two options this year. The sweet brioche cake — covered in royal icing and topped with purple, green and gold sugar and Mardi Gras beads — comes in a traditional (but decidedly not boring) cinnamon ($26) or a raspberry cream cheese ($28). Or channel some serious Fat Tuesday energy and snag both flavors for $50!

YOU EVER JUST want to scream? Like, as loudly as you can, to absolutely no one in particular? Not a shout or a holler. I am talking about a primal yell that originates in the depths of your soul and spews forth with such force it shakes the tops of the trees and rattles the glass of surrounding buildings and changes ever-so-slightly the actual rotation of the planet. No? Just me?
