The Weekender: December 20-22


Just like that, it’s the weekend before Christmas. Whether you celebrate or not, this time of year is always magical. Here are some great ways to get in the holiday sprit this weekend.

Shift Your Shopping. Do you need a list minute gift for your sister? Find the perfect gift at this weekend’s local holiday market taking place at Somerville’s Arts at the Armory.

A Modern Take. There are still tickets to weekend performances of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Rock along to your favorite holiday classics.

A December Ball. Need an excuse to wear that new sequin dress? The Americana Theatre Company presents the Moonlight and Mistletoe Ball, an evening of music, dancing, and festive cheer.

Christmas by Candlelight. Old Sturbridge Village is one of our favorite places. Even as an adult, it is such a fun place to explore. If you like gingerbread, roasted chestnuts, Christmas carols, and mulled cider, you’ll love Christmas by Candlelight.

Polar Express and Santa! This Sunday, join the Polar Express Holiday Celebration at Wachusett Mountain. The event will include a showing of The Polar Express, a visit from Santa, arts and crafts, Christmas carols, and more.

Note: The Boston Wine Expo is not far away – coming in February, 2014. Use discount code HOLIDAY13 for $10 off the Saturday or Sunday Grand Tasting. Valid until December 24.
