  • Have a Merry Christmas

2020 may have been a difficult year, but don’t let that stop you from celebrating the birth of Christ. Safely get together with family and have a Merry Christmas! Try setting up a video call to see high risk family members or those who live too far away to safely see in person. From the spark HD family to yours, we hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

  • Have a happy New Year

The year 2020 ends this Thursday (December 31), so get ready to say goodbye to a difficult year and hello to a new one. Happy New Year!

  • Watch Soul

On Christmas (Friday December 25), Disney and Pixar are releasing Soul on Disney+. Set up a Group Watch with family and friends and celebrate the Christmas holiday together.

  • Watch Wonder Woman: 1984

After several changed release dates due to the pandemic, Wonder Woman: 1984 will be released to theatres and HBO Max this Christmas (Friday December 25).

  • Ice Skating at Millennium Park

Millennium Park’s outdoor ice-skating rinks are opening up once again for the Holiday season. The McCormick Tribune Rink is a traditional oval shape perfect for beginners. The Ribbon, located at Maggie Daily Park, is a long circular path with level, uphill, and downhill skating for a slightly more experienced skater although beginners are welcome to try. Skates may be rented for $16-20 a pair, but bring your own, and it’s completely free of charge. Due to COVID-19, there will be limited capacity. Go to to make your reservations now or to learn more about skating downtown.
