Now that it's December, the holiday season is fully upon us with Hanukkah falling on the early side this year. There are several ways to celebrate the Festival of Lights, from this annual menorah lighting with live music to this Chanukah cantata to not one but two Hanukkah parties featuring Vanessa Trien. Kids and parents can learn about holidays from around the world and create art together. History buffs can also have their holiday wishes come true at this candlelight stroll, Christmas by candlelight in Sturbridge, and holidays (plus crafting!) at Hale House.  

Of course, be sure to check in with a beloved Boston holiday tradition: the Mayor's Enchanted Trolley Tour will be spreading joy throughout the city all weekend long!
