One week before Christmas — and just three days before the start of Hanukkah, at sundown Sunday — nearly one in three people had yet to begin searching for gifts, a study has found. There are many options in Huntington Beach for locals who helped contribute to that statistic, either due to a time crunch or budgetary constraints. As of Tuesday, 31% of Americans surveyed hadn’t started their holiday shopping, Rasmussen Reports found; conversely, 29% had already finished shopping.

Two Huntington Beach men hope to help schools, nonprofits and other institutions with a new way to fundraise - right in the palm of consumers' hands. Gary Allhusen and Carlos Aguilar began developing the Communities for Cause mobile app in November to modernize fundraising and help raise more money for causes. After a successful test run at the Pegasus School in Huntington Beach, the app was widely released to other Orange County schools earlier this month. The app was developed to compete with Scrip, a fundraising system that allows users to purchase gift cards for various merchants and earn a percentage of revenue for causes.

The difference between the haves and the have-nots can sometimes be determined by where you live or the car you drive, but at Huntington Beach high schools, it can also be seen by what you wear on your back. Students come back from winter break wearing the spoils of Christmas, but not everyone is included in the parade of the season's hippest clothes. A number of homeless students at Huntington Beach and Edison high schools aren't afforded the same luxuries as most of the student population, but hopefully, they won't have to do without new clothes this holiday.

Some of the most underutilized forms of family entertainment are the theatrical performances put on by our area high schools. These students and faculty spend a lot of time and put a lot of heart into these productions and usually put on a show more than worth the price of admission.
