MEREDITH NUSSBAUM reads her original poem from a cell phone during her Spoken Word  performance at the Jingle Boom Holiday Bash, which also had music, windows decorated by artists. Nussbaum wore a Santa hat and fuzzy white sweater with twinkling Christmas lights, and prizes were given to people wearing the most creative or Ugly Sweaters, at the Main Street Gallery of Huntington Arts Council. Sparkboom, an HAC project, provides events such as this geared to Gen-Y, 18-34 years of age, to address the 'brain drain' of creative young professionals of Long Island.
