Wishing Happiness to All, at the Hollywood Christmas Parade

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Once again this year, The Way to Happiness Foundation and the Los Angeles Churches of Scientology extend a wish for happiness to everyone watching the Hollywood Christmas Parade. The two-hour special on the 90th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade airs on The CW Network Friday, December 16, 2022, at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific and 7 p.m. Central. It features celebrities, giant balloons, floats, marching bands, equestrians, classic cars and Santa on his sleigh. And, as it has for three decades, it includes a float on The Way to Happiness, the common-sense guide to better living written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. On the float again this year was actor Jason Dohring of "Veronica Mars."

"The principles in this book have really helped me achieve success as an actor," says Dohring about The Way to Happiness. "It has also taught me how to be a better father and a more decent person."

The book contains 21 precepts or principles that, if used, can increase anyone's chances for happiness. Entirely nonreligious, its precepts may be used by anyone regardless of race, culture or creed to foster kindness, honesty, and the basic skills of living.

A free online course in 17 languages covering each of the 21 precepts is available through The Way to Happiness website.

Immensely popular since its first publication, the book is distributed in 115 languages in 186 nations. It holds a Guinness World Record as the single most-translated nonreligious book.

To uplift every sector of society, the nonprofit, secular The Way to Happiness Foundation International headquarters in Glendale, California, was established as the coordination center for worldwide activities. Through support of the Churches of Scientology and Scientologists, The Way to Happiness and its educational materials and programs are now utilized in every corner of the globe, helping to instill a higher level of honesty, trust and self-respect.

The Scientology Network features the award-winning The Way to Happiness book on film in 17 languages. The network also documents the work of humanitarians who use The Way to Happiness to uplift their communities and countries.

And for more Christmas cheer, all are invited to watch the Holiday Concert on the Scientology Network on DIRECTV 320 and streaming at Scientology.tv, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.

The Holidays Have Arrived in Hollywood With the Opening of Winter Wonderland

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Actor Jason Dohring, best known for his role in "Veronica Mars," joined Santa and his elves for the opening of L. Ron Hubbard's Winter Wonderland on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Dohring cut the ribbon and was joined by human rights activist Alberto Godinez; media executive, director and journalist Rolando Nichols; Hollywood Chamber of Commerce board member and chair of the Board of Trustees for the Hollywood Sign Jeff Zarrinnam; and the assistant chief and battalion chief of the West Bureau Los Angeles Fire Department.

Winter Wonderland has welcomed generations of children annually since 1983. That was when L. Ron Hubbard first donated a giant Christmas tree to the Hollywood community. And that tradition has continued ever since.

"It is a beautiful setting for families to come and take their picture with Santa," said Zarrinnam. "It is perfect to have this right here on Hollywood Boulevard."

In keeping with its iconic location at 6724 Hollywood Blvd., Winter Wonderland is designed as a Hollywood set with a 60-foot Christmas tree, Santa's house, and a forest of evergreen trees.

Come for the entertainment, the complimentary cocoa and cookies, and gift bags for the children. And have pictures taken of the kids or the whole family with Santa and his elves.

Angelenos and those visiting from out of town are invited to come and enjoy the fun through December 25, Mon-Thursday 5-9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 2-9 p.m.

And for more Christmas cheer, watch the Holiday Concert on the Scientology Network on DIRECTV 320 and streaming at Scientology.tv, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.
