How to watch ‘The Disney Holiday Singalong’ special live on ABC without cable
Business

Disney Theatrical Productions, once a booming if relatively small sliver of the Walt Disney Company, has had to work extra hard to get its share of the spotlight since the coronavirus pandemic sidelined live theater. But Disney continues to figure out new ways to extract value from its live musicals.Tonight, the Disney-owned ABC broadcast network will air a new installment of its singalong series—this one a holiday version—complete with performances from the likes of BTS, Leslie Odom Jr., Katy Perry, Kerry Washington, and more.The one-hour event, hosted by Ryan Secrest, will also feature the casts of the stage musicals The Lion King, Aladdin, and Frozen on stage at the New Amsterdam Theatre, Disney’s Broadway house, for the first time since theaters were shuttered in March. And not that you needed another reason to watch, but the special will help raise awareness for a number of charities as part of Disney’s Feed the Love campaign.

‘Bleak Friday’ for Stores as Pandemic Pushes Holiday Shopping Online
Business

The 2020 edition of Black Friday did not offer the usual scenes of bustling stores and shoppers lined up outside discount chains and electronics retailers. Instead, most people bought online, if they bought at all.Crowds at malls and city shopping districts were relatively sparse over the holiday weekend in the face of rising coronavirus cases and warnings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to avoid large groups. Major chains closed on Thanksgiving, after years of being open that day. And many Americans did their shopping before the weekend even began, drawn by sales that began in October.Analysts at Morgan Stanley estimated that retailers’ overall Black Friday sales fell 20 percent from last year, based on early reports of drops in store foot traffic and increases in online sales. Consumers spent $9 billion online on Friday, a 21.6 increase from last year and the second-biggest figure for online retailers ever, according to Adobe Analytics, which scans 80 percent of online transactions across the top 100 U.S. web retailers. The firm said online sales rose to $23.5 billion in the four-day Thanksgiving-to-Sunday period, up 23 percent from last year.

'Personalized gifts' is the No. 1 search term on Etsy this year, CEO says
Business

The most-searched term on e-commerce site Etsy this year is "personalized gifts," CEO Josh Silverman told CNBC on Monday.It is even more popular than queries for masks, a category that was virtually nonexistent on Etsy this year before the coronavirus pandemic caused a boom in sales, Silverman said in a "Closing Bell" interview. In the second and third quarters alone, Etsy sold more than $600 million in face masks, he added.Even so, interest in personalized gifts on the marketplace of independent sellers superseded all else in 2020, as the global health crisis moved birthday celebrations to Zoom and upended traditional holiday gatherings. The pandemic-fueled interest in meaningful gifts is showing up elsewhere, too, such as on Pinterest.

When you wish upon a well at Disney World, know your money will go toward a good cause – beyond making your own wishes come true.Walt Disney World has collected about $20,000 in coins tourists have thrown into the theme park’s various wishing wells and fountains in 2020 – an impressive amount considering Disney World was closed for fourth months due to the coronavirus pandemic. Disney World officially reopened in July.Now with the generous sum, Disney World has turned it into a donation for Coalition, Central Florida’s largest homeless advocacy organization. Traditionally, Disney World will collect the coins from its fountains to donate to a Central Florida charity, the Orlando Sentinel reported.DISNEY GETTING NEW TRAIN STATION TO CONNECT TO ORLANDO AIRPORT“This gift will make a big difference in the lives of those who turn to the Coalition for help, especially in the midst of such a challenging time for so many in our community. When people toss a coin and make a wish, they likely have no idea the good they’ll be doing … in our case, helping our homeless neighbors in need on their journey home. We’re so grateful to Disney to be the recipient of this special tradition,” a spokesperson for the Coalition said in a statement to Fox Business.
