December GoList: Best Holiday Events and Activities for LA and OC Kids

Thanksgiving is behind us, and the daily, backward-counting dose of chocolate known as Advent begins. Suddenly we have barely three weeks left to squeeze every bit of holiday fun out of this city that we possibly can—with a week left over to decide whether we should try to celebrate New Year's Eve with our kids, or elusively without them. There are amazing holiday light displays to take in and loads of free holiday extravaganzas. There are Santa photos to snap, trees to light, and Nutcrackers to see; and Hanukkah looms large on the lit horizon, too. In short, no matter how hard you try to do it all, there is more epic fun stuff going on than anyone could possibly do in a month. If you had to choose, though, below are the dozen December events we suggest you make time for.

December GoList: Best Things to Do With Houston Kids This Month

It's the time of the year when the Christmas decorations Target put on display in October are finally appropriate. The holidays are here! We have you covered with our guide featuring events and things to do around Houston this month from where to see holiday shows and The Nutcracker, FREE holiday events for the family, and places to take photos (or eat breakfast) with Santa.

There are tons of fun festivals in December, and lucky for us Houstonians, many of them have thousands of pounds of "snow" for kids to play in. As a native Houstonian, I didn't see snow until I was in my late teens, so at least you can still give your kids a white-ish Christmas. Also, events that started in November like Zoo Lights, Moody Gardens' Festival of Lights, and Magical Winter Lights in La Marque are still up and running throughout December.
