Top 10 Destinations for Holiday Lights Christmas - From dazzling Disney displays to brilliant boat parades, these 10 destinations mark a spectacular start to the holiday season.

The holidays are just around the corner, and there's nothing like an electrifying display of holiday lights to charge you up for the season and zap you with that jolly-good Christmas cheer. Luckily for us, there's no place in the world that does holiday lights quite like the good ol' U.S. of A., and we've rounded up a merry mix of small towns and sprawling cities that do it best.

From East to West, from dazzling Disney displays to brilliant boat parades, sparkling city skylines to mesmerizing megawatt-lined drives, when these top 10 destinations for holiday lights flip the switch, they mark the spectacular start to the holiday season, guaranteeing spectators a sparkling dose of over-the-top holiday spirit.

1. New York City, NY

The Big Apple is known for doing things bigger, better, and brighter, and the holidays are no exception, what with the city's wondrous window displays, holiday concerts and events, bustling holiday markets, ice-skating rinks, chestnut-roasting street vendors, and seemingly endless street-to-street stream of shining holiday lights.

While you can hardly turn the corner without glimpsing a generous glimmer, some illuminations are simply not to be missed: Start with Rockefeller Center's iconic towering tree, set aglow with some 30,000 bulbs that glisten down upon the ice-skating rink, bugling lit-up angels, and wide-eyed tourists through early January (lit November 30; free; www.rockefellercenter.com). Tree-lighting fixes (all free) abound – try the South Street Seaport (lit November 25; www.southstreetseaport.com), Lincoln Center (lit November 28, www.winterseve.org), Washington Square Park (lit December 7; www.washingtonsquarenyc.org), Bryant Park (lit November 29; www.bryantpark.org), or the Metropolitan Museum of Art (lit November 29; www.metmuseum.org); or, catch the lighting of the world's largest Chanukah menorah – at 32-feet high and 4,000 pounds – on the southeastern corner of Central Park on December 20. Other highlights include downtown's wonderful Winter Garden, where 45-foot-tall palm trees are offset by 100,000 white lights (lit November 29–January 8; free; www.artsworldfinancialcenter.com) and the dangling dozen of illuminated 14-foot stars at the Time Warner Center (now–January 3; free; www.shopsatcolumbuscircle.com).

Look to the city's outer boroughs, too, for unique takes on holiday lights: We especially like the ostentatiously decorated homes (expect larger-than-life motorized displays, inflatable decorations, and a gargantuan gaggle of glaring lights) in Brooklyn's Italian-American neighborhood of Dyker Heights (free). Overwhelmed on where to start? Sign up for an organized tour: CitySights NY offers 2.5-hour "Lights of the Holidays" tours of Manhattan (runs November 28–December 30, except Christmas; $44 adults, $34 kids ages 5 to 11; www.citysightsny.com), while A Slice of Brooklyn offers a Brooklyn-based "Christmas Lights and Cannoli Tour," on select dates in December ($55 adults; $45 children under 12; www.asliceofbrooklyn.com).


2. Newport Beach, CA

For more than a century, Newport Beach's "Christmas Boat Parade" has delighted spectators with a "Christmas-sea" feeling all its own. A fine flotilla of some 200 vibrantly decorated vessels, from multimillion-dollar yachts right down to simple canoes, glides through Newport Harbor as holiday music and costumed carolers fill the air with melodious merrymaking. The brilliant boat parade (it's the oldest one in the country) attracts close to a million viewers; it's held nightly from December 14 through December 18 and lasts about 2.5 hours – show up on the closing night for a fireworks finale. Viewing areas for the beaming 14-mile boat route are on the public beaches and establishments bordering the Balboa Peninsula, the Fun Zone amusement area (where you can hear live commentary from Captain Mike Whitehead, the official voice of the parade), and Balboa Island.

What's more, many harbor-front homeowners and businesses participate in the annual "Ring of Lights" contest, showcasing their own elaborate holiday displays, while providing a striking backdrop to the boat parade (free; www.christmasboatparade.com). Well worth a detour, the historic Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside (set less than 50 miles away) is the setting for an extravagant showing of more than 3.6 million holiday lights in its "Festival of Lights" event; expect 400-plus animated figures, live reindeer, and even snow machine-produced flurries – come on opening night for a fireworks display, to boot (November 25-January 8; free; www.festivaloflightsca.com).


3. Walt Disney World

It's the happiest place on earth, and come Christmastime, it might just be the brightest place on earth, to boot! The Orlando area's Walt Disney World Resort makes a business of holiday lights magic, with its coup de grĂ¢ce event, "The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights," unfolding at Hollywood Studios. The theme park is blanketed by a staggering 5 million bulbs that sync up with animated displays for choreographed interpretations of holiday tunes – not to mention the artificial snow flurries, 3-D effects, and colorful decorations that crop up around every bend.

The exhibit – which began as an Arkansas family's home Christmas light display that had spiraled into a statewide attraction – was transported to the park in 1995 and Disneyfied to an almost unfathomable scale (now–January 7, closed December 8; standard park admission applies, $85 ages 10 and up, $79 ages 3 to 9, taxes additional). Tack on a visit to the Magic Kingdom, as well, where "Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party" delights with live entertainment, a jolly holiday parade anchored by Santa himself, snowfall on Main Street, a holiday-themed light show on the Cinderella Castle (which is already draped with some 100,000 snow-white lights), and a fireworks finale (select nights from now–December 18; day-of event admission ticket is $62.95 ages 10 and up, $57.95 ages 3 to 9, taxes additional).

One thing's for certain: The old "'twas the night before Christmas" poem certainly doesn't apply here, because with all of these lights, it'd be impossible for a mouse (in this case, Mickey and Minnie both!) – or anybody else, for that matter – not to stir.


4. Denver, CO

If you can sneak in a Colorado ski vacation before the new year, don't miss a stopover in Denver, decked out with downright dazzling light displays during their "Mile High Holiday" events. December 2 and 3 see the "9NEWS Parade of Lights" march from the festively illuminated City and County Building (the city's largest lighting display, it's lit November 25) through the downtown Denver area, featuring nearly a million shiny lights, a dozen twinkling floats, soaring balloons, marching bands, and more (free; www.denverparadeoflights.com). Also pop by the Denver Botanic Gardens' "Blossoms of Lights" exhibition, where more than a million colorful holiday lights are integrated into the gardens, and further enhanced by extras like glistening ice sculptures and a strolling choir (December 2–January 1; $9.50 adults, $6.50 kids ages 3 to 12; www.botanicgardens.org). Meanwhile, the Denver Zoo's "Zoo Lights" event invites visitors to embark on a holiday lights safari – its 38 acres are embellished with more than 150 animated animal sculptures (December 9–January 1; $9 adults, $5 kids ages 3 to 11; www.denverzoo.org).

5. Chicago, IL

Chicago's frosty winter weather, festive events, and glittering lights make it a hotbed for holiday spirit. The 20th annual "Magnificent Mile Lights Festival" is at the city's celebratory epicenter, where more than a million lights on 200 trees flank the famous shopping strip, with hundreds of shop's holiday window displays adding to the appeal.

Don't miss stepping in to see Macy's 45-feet-high Great Tree, whose lights remain up through March 1 (free; www.themagnificentmile.com). Meanwhile, downtown's sparkling Christmas tree in Daley Plaza has been prettifying this plaza for 98 years; a Santa's workshop for the kids and German-style Christmas market ensure the square is positively brimming with holiday cheer (remains lit through January 8; free).

6. Branson, MO

Nestled in southwestern Missouri's scenic Ozark Mountains, the city of Branson transforms into a veritable winter wonderland each holiday season, bursting at the seams with lavish light displays and dozens of Christmas spirit-infused shows and events. For the most gleeful glitz, head to the 1880s-style theme park Silver Dollar City, site of "An Old Time Christmas," with an elaborate light-and-music show showcasing no fewer than 4 million radiant lights and 1,000 decorated Christmas trees. Highlights include the musically inclined 5-story Special Effects Christmas Tree, which, along with the surrounding square, beams with over a million lights that "dance" to select Christmas tunes; there's also a holiday light parade with light-embellished musical floats that runs twice each evening (now–December 30, closed Christmas Eve and Christmas; park admission of $55 adults and $45 ages 4 to 11 applies; www.silverdollarcity.com).

Shift gear for some yuletide cheer at the "Branson Area Festival of Lights Drive-Through," a mile-long drive set aglow with some 175 luminous displays (now–January 2; $12 per vehicle; www.explorebranson.com), or opt for the "Trail of Lights," winding through a 160-acre historic homestead, complete with themed sections, holiday music, and more than 4 million colorful Christmas lights – don't miss the "Santa's-eye view" from the atop the 230-foot-high tower (now–January 2; $10 adults, $5 ages 4 to 16; www.trailoflights.com).

7. McAdenville, NC

For nearly six decades, the little North Carolina town of McAdenville (with a population shy of 700) lures some 600,000 visitors to witness its transformation into what's been dubbed "Christmas Town USA." A high-spirited partnership between town residents and a local manufacturing company allows the hamlet to trim more than 375 fir trees (they outnumber the households!) with nearly a half-million red, green, and white holiday lights. The trees range in size from 6-footers adorned with 500 lights to 90-foot-high behemoths bedecked in some 5,000 radiant bulbs. Recorded Christmas carols broadcast from a local church add to the high-powered Christmas feel. This year's event runs through December 26, kicking off with the official lighting ceremony at the town's Legacy Park on December 1 (free; www.mcadenville-christmastown.com).

Tack on a visit to the "Holiday Lights at the Garden" at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in nearby Belmont (just 5 miles away), where plants and trees are bedazzled with some half-million lights and are joined by a Christmas tree created by orchids, carriage rides, and more (November 25–December 31, closed Christmas; $12 adults, $6 children ages 4 to 12; www.dsbg.org).

8. San Antonio, TX

San Antonio's River Walk is always a hotbed of activity, but the holidays take it to new heights, particularly so in 2011, with the infusion of 20 times more Christmas lights (thanks to the city's move to more energy-efficient LED lighting). You'll find the bulk of the 1.8 million holiday lights garnishing nearly 200 trees (done up with 10,000 bulbs apiece) and on 20 holiday-hued bridges, all brightened up even further by carolers bellowing their tunes nightly from passing river barges (singers perform November 26– December 18). The festivities kick off on November 25 (and run through January 1), when the switch is flipped and the "Ford Holiday River Parade," complete with an entourage of lit-up festooned floats, unfolds.

The quarter is also home to the luminous "Fiesta de las Luminarias" on select weekends (December 2–18), whereby some 6,000 luminarias (candle-lit paper lanterns) symbolically light the way for the Holy Family. Come by after December 3, and you'll also get to ogle the "River of Lights" spectacle, featuring over 100 underwater lights and fiber optic-outfitted water features along the new Museum Reach section of the River Walk (free; www.thesanantonioriverwalk.com). In conjunction with the amped-up display, the city is additionally holding its inaugural "Light Up Downtown Holiday Contest" in 2011, which has downtown business owners competing for the most creative holiday light displays – and your starry-eyed attention.

9. Virginia

Virginia is indeed for lovers – and holiday light lovers might just lead that pack! Coming together for one sparkling statewide spectacle, their "100 Miles of Lights" festival strings together illuminated extravaganzas between six cities (all set within a 100-mile span), including Richmond, Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach. Millions of holiday lights and family-friendly celebrations combine for this one-of-a-kind event, including Virginia Beach's "McDonald's Holiday Lights at the Beach," which refashions the boardwalk into a striking nautical- and holiday-themed light display, complete with a 40-foot-tall Christmas tree installed right on the beach – it's the only time of year that vehicles can drive right on the boardwalk (now–January 1; $10 weekdays, $15 weekends per vehicle; www.beachstreetusa.com).

On November 19, Norfolk's "Grand Illumination Parade" unfolds, rolling out flashing floats, soaring balloons, marching bands, dancers, and a visit from Santa himself, all in celebration of the illumination of downtown Norfolk (lights stay up through January 1; free; www.downtownnorfolk.org/enjoy/hic). Another highlight is Newport News' "Celebration in Lights," an eye-catching, 2-mile, Yule-fueled drive past the forests, fields, and lakes of Newport News Regional Park, all beautified by more than 700,000 holiday lights and 200 illuminated displays (November 24–January 1; $10/vehicle; www.newport-news.org).

10. Baltimore, MD

When it comes to Christmastime magic, it seems that "34th Streets" across the country are a bona fide breeding ground for just that. Just look to Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood each holiday season, where for more than 60 years, a charming block of row houses on 34th street has been transformed into what's been dubbed "Christmas Street" and the "Miracle on 34th Street." Residents come together in a labor of love to bedeck their properties with a holiday hodgepodge of larger-than-life snow globes, flashing angels, musical trains, and blinking lights galore – a handful of the homes will even allow visitors inside to peek into their indoor Christmas wonderlands, as well (November 26–January 1; free; www.christmasstreet.com).

Try and coordinate your visit with the colorful "Parade of Lighted Boats," an event where more than 50 vessels festooned with holiday lights illustrate Baltimore's nautical and Christmas spirit on December 3 (free; www.fpyc.net). Plus, new for 2011, the harbor-front Power Plant building will shine with holiday lights, lasers, and 3D effects during early evening hourly show times (now–December 31; free; www.itsawaterfrontlife.org).

Bachchan newborn baby fails to inherit Abhishek’s qualities?

Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai's baby delivery have been the most popular subject of the country for the past couple of weeks. Now when Aishwarya has eventually delivered a little one girl on November 16, soothsayers and numerologists are leaving no stone unturned to forecast the Baby B's forthcoming looks, character and qualities.

Amitabh in his blog have currently explained the newborn's look indicating that the infant has inherited her mom Aishwarya Rai's light blue eyes. Numerologists point out, 'She will be a excellent speaker like her grandpa Big B. Also, she will get Aishwarya's mom's charitable character and she will be thinking about creative writing like her great grandpa Harivansh Rai Bachchan.' Abhi's child will be very qualified, Sharma says. 'She will study languages, sociology or fine arts. She'll be lovely, have shiny hair and sharp eyes. She may go on to turn into a singer or a great public figure.'

With all such forecasts and speculations, we absolutely choose one thing missing, that is Abhishek Bachchan. Nobody has even attempted to discover a normal feature between the baby and her dad, as folks are just running to induce Aishwarya and Big B's features into the newborn baby. Poor Abhishek, expect to see your little girl growing up carrying your qualities.

3d, anamorph, anamorphic Medusa, anamorphosis, illusion, medusa, medusa anamorph, stoplights, truly design - Anamorphic Medusa Inside a Factory by Truly Design

Do you remember the Anamorphic Typography by Joseph Egan? This anamorphic Medusa was created by Truly Design using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis.

"Turn thou from their sight, Risk no glance. The sight of Gorgon, if she cometh, would bring thee night from which were no returning." – Dante, "Inferno", Canto IX, vv. 51-57

Perseus had to look at the Gorgon Medusa's image reflected in the mirroring shield given to him by Athena to avoid being turned into stone. Well, also this anamorphic Medusa can be seen only from a certain viewpoint.

This challenging anamorph was created in the factory/urban lab which hosted Sub Urb Art.








Creative pedestrian bridge near Fort de Roovere in the Netherlands divides the water like Moses and allows people to safely cross to the other side - Invisible bridge is miracle of biblical proportions

Creative pedestrian bridge near Fort de Roovere in the Netherlands divides the water like Moses and allows people to safely cross to the other side.

Invisible bridge is miracle of biblical proportions 

Tourists are flocking to a Moses-style bridge where visitors can miraculously part the waters and walk across an historic moat. 

The bridge features a sunken walkway beneath the water level surrounding a Dutch fort.

Architects were keen not to step on the toes of their forefathers by building a bridge over a moat.

Ad Kils, a spokesman for RO & AD Architects, said: 'It is, of course, highly improper to build bridges across the moats of defence works, especially on the side of the fortress the enemy was expected to appear on. That's why we designed an invisible bridge.'

The water forms part of the West Brabant Water Line, a series of moats and fortresses built in the 17th century in the south-west of the country to provide protection from invasion by France and Spain.

Falling into disrepair in the 19th century, the water line was finally restored and an access bridge was needed to Fort de Roovere.

There had been worries that the mysterious pathway could be flooded but architects have allayed those fears, saying there's little risk of waves splashing over the side.

And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry, and the waters were divided…

However, no magic was necessary this time. Ro Koster and Ad Kil Architects built this almost invisible bridge for crossing the defensive fortress in Halsteren, the Netherlands. The amazing sunken bridge sits within the water and slope surrounding the 17th Century Dutch fort and gives visitors a unique opportunity to walk trough parted waters like Moses.

The bridge was made from Accsys Technologies' Accoya wood sheet pilling on either side with a hardwood deck and stairs in between. Accoya wood was chosen for its durability, stability and sustainable benefits and is constructed using a tongue and groove method.

25 "Worst Passwords" of 2011 Revealed

If you see your password below, STOP!

Do not finish reading this post and immediately go change your password -- before you forget. You will probably make changes in several places since passwords tend to be reused for multiple accounts.

Here are two lists, the first compiled by SplashData:

1. password
2. 123456
3.12345678
4. qwerty
5. abc123
6. monkey
7. 1234567
8. letmein
9. trustno1
10. dragon
11. baseball
12. 111111
13. iloveyou
14. master
15. sunshine
16. ashley
17. bailey
18. passwOrd
19. shadow
20. 123123
21. 654321
22. superman
23. qazwsx
24. michael
25. football

Last year, Imperva looked at 32 million passwords stolen from RockYou, a hacked website, and released its own Top 10 "worst" list:

1. 123456
2. 12345
3. 123456789
4. Password
5. iloveyou
6. princess
7. rockyou
8. 1234567
9. 12345678
10. abc123

If you've gotten this far and don't see any of your passwords, that's good news. But, note that complex passwords combining letters and numbers, such as passw0rd (with the "o" replaced by a zero) are starting to get onto the 2011 list. abc123 is a mixed password that showed up on both lists.

Last year, Imperva provided a list of password best practices, created by NASA to help its users protect their rocket science, they include:

It should contain at least eight characters

It should contain a mix of four different types of characters - upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers, and special characters such as !@#$%^&*,;" If there is only one letter or special character, it should not be either the first or last character in the password.

It should not be a name, a slang word, or any word in the dictionary. It should not include any part of your name or your e-mail address.

Following that advice, of course, means you'll create a password that will be impossible, unless you try a trick credited to security guru Bruce Schneir: Turn a sentence into a password.

For example, "Now I lay me down to sleep" might become nilmDOWN2s, a 10-character password that won't be found in any dictionary.

Can't remember that password? Schneir says it's OK to write it down and put it in your wallet, or better yet keep a hint in your wallet. Just don't also include a list of the sites and services that password works with. Try to use a different password on every service, but if you can't do that, at least develop a set of passwords that you use at different sites.

Someday, we will use authentication schemes, perhaps biometrics, that don't require so much jumping through hoops to protect our data. But, in the meantime, passwords are all most of us have, so they ought to be strong enough to do the job.

Adolf Hitler's Parents Lose Custody of Newborn

The parents of a New Jersey boy named Adolf Hitler have lost custody of their fourth child, a newborn son. Heath and Deborah Campbell said they have no idea why their baby, Hons, was taken from them just hours after his birth last week at a Hunterdon County hospital, and authorities declined to reveal the reason to the press, reports the Lehigh Express-Times. A doctor reportedly called authorities shortly after the baby was born. The couple's other three children, who were all given Nazi-inspired names, were taken from the Campbells two years ago because of the parents' unspecified "psychological disabilities" and because investigators feared violence in the home, according to court documents.

Authorities first took notice of the family after a supermarket refused to decorate a birthday cake using Adolf's name. The parents are still fighting for custody of Adolf and his sisters, Joycelynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie. An attorney for the Campbells said the parents will be in court today to seek custody of Hons. "There's no legal binding court order," said Heath Campbell. "It's basically a kidnapping, but they use different terms."

Hulk Hogan’s Divorce Details Go Public - Details surrounding the divorce settlement between Terry Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, and ex-wife Linda Bollea have surfaced in an article in the St. Petersburg Times. The two were divorced in 2009, but

Details surrounding the divorce settlement between Terry Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, and ex-wife Linda Bollea have surfaced in an article in the St. Petersburg Times. The two were divorced in 2009, but specifics of their financial settlement were unknown until now.

So much for 50/50. Linda Bollea received more than 70% of the couple's liquid assets. But the pain doesn't stop there for the Hulkster. His ex also received a 40% ownership stake in Hulk's companies. Plus, she received a $3 million property settlement (more on that below).

The St. Petersberg Times writes that "the confidential financial settlement came to light this week after it was attached to a new motion filed by Terry Bollea's attorneys."

So, what are the gritty details? According to the documents, Linda Bollea got a lump sum of $7.44 million from the couple's investment accounts. The remaining $2.97 million went to the Hulk.

The properties were either sold or are still on the market. The couple's home used in "Hogan Knows Best" was originally listed for nearly $14 million. It is now available for around $8.87 million. Once that sells, Hogan will owe his ex-wife $1.45 million. The two will split the remaining proceeds.

Additionally, Linda Bollea received several cars in the split, including a Mercedes-Benz, a Corvette, a Cadillac Escalade, and a Rolls-Royce. Hulk received many of the remaining automobiles.

It may sound like Hulk got body slammed, but it's not all bad news for the iconic wrestler. Deadspin explains that the Hulkster will get to keep any money he earns from personal appearances and will not have to pay alimony.

By celebrity standards, Hulk and Linda had what could be considered a pretty successful marriage. They were together for roughly 26 years and had two children, Nick and Brooke. Their reality program, "Hogan Knows Best," ran for four seasons.

You can take print outs of such discount coupons from the Internet. The idea is the coupons offer 5%-20% discounts on these chosen food items. You can literally use the coupons as money when buying these particular items.

Sell your coupon collection if not using personally:

Many times you might have additional coupons or you might not need that particular food item. In that case, rather than throwing away the relevant coupon, you should sell it to make money. Now, there are a variety of ways that you can go about it. Sometimes you might just sell it to neighbors or acquaintances. In case, you do not have a demand for coupons in those circles, you can always get on eBay to sell the coupons. Only, in this case you must make sure to stamp on the shipping date correctly, so that the coupons reach the address before their expiry date.

Provide correct information in your advertisement:

It does not matter whether you are selling your coupons on eBay or letting your friends know about them word-to- mouth. In both cases, make sure to detail all the information about the coupons and be accurate. You need to mention the expiration dates of the coupons, the rate of discount that they offer and also the items that they are for.

Important internet policy:

Many Internet sites do not allow for people to declare selling of coupons. As such it will be a better idea if you rather mentioned that you were selling the coupon clipping service. This statement will make sure that your target customers understand your intent. Also, this way you do not violate any laws that might put you in legal obligations with the websites or selling portals.

Affiliate coupon offers:

In some cases coupons will have a referral program attached to them. This means that for every person that you refer to the coupon program, you earn a bonus. Now, there are variations to this program as well. Some of the affiliate programs are a one referral-one bonus deal. Roughly, this means that the referral bonus that you receive is just a one-time deal and you receive the bonus for your referred person each time but it ends right there. There are other affiliate programs where you get a referral bonus for each referral you make plus the bonus continues with the progression of referrals from that person too. Needless to say, this is a better way of getting in with the affiliate program.

Buying discount coupons at a lower price:

Sometimes you can actually buy discount coupons for services or even local restaurants that you frequent. You can buy a high discount coupon for a lower rate and then redeem the coupon at the restaurant or service for a higher discount. This is a very easy way of saving money. Every saving is indirectly an earning. This logic justifies the method as an easy way to earn money via discount coupons.

Discount offers online:

Do not disregard the Internet as a very viable option of getting discount offers. Some of them you do not even have to print out to redeem. You can just make use of these offers and their affiliate programs to get the discount coupons deposited in your email inbox. Once you are ready to cash in the discount or the money that you have earned via the affiliate referral, you can request a cash-out from the website deposited directly to your account.

Just remember that earning money from discount coupons is not a get rich quick scheme. In fact, it is not even a way to earn your living. It is just a way to enjoy some extra cash in your lives with a decent strategy and almost zero effort.

How to search in Google Calendar

 

Using the search function in Google Calendar is similar to searching on Google.com. To search for events on your calendars, use the search box at the top of the page. For example, if you're looking for an event that contains the word 'swimming,' type [ swimming ] in the search field and click Search My Calendars. The search results will only contain events from calendars that are selected for viewing in your calendar list. (Calendars that are selected for viewing are highlighted by a colored bar. To select a calendar, simply click on the title in the calendar list.)

You can expand or refine your searches using Google Calendar search options. Just click Show Search Options (at the top of the page, next to the 'Search My Calendars' box), complete the appropriate fields, and press Enter.
