GH’s John J. York (Mac) always gets a bit nostalgic when he starts getting the house ready for Christmas. “My favorite memories from when I was a kid would be going up to the dusty attic and bringing down all the boxes to decorate… and somehow always cutting one or two of my fingers putting together the silver, aluminum-foil Christmas tree!” he recalls. “So what gets me in the Christmas spirit now is the Thanksgiving get-together, and then in the next day or two, we pull out the boxes of decorations, put on the Christmas music and decorate the house.” The Midwestern boy also gets into the mood via classics like A Christmas Story. “That movie is me growing up — that’s my neighborhood, that’s my school,” he says. “It’s a…
