Ho, ho, ho, it's Hanukkah! All across the Southland, kids are lighting their menorahs, spinning their dreidels, and feasting on latkes (and maybe opening a present or eight).
And that chill you feel? It's CHILL, of course, the wintry annual fest at the feet of the Queen Mary in Long Beach. This year, it transforms into an ice adventure park, with ice skating track, ice bumper cars, ice tricycles, a zip line, ice shuffleboard, a two-story, 100-foot-long ice tubing slide, and many more festive winter activities.
Of course, snow is no big deal in Los Angeles. It's pretty much everywhere you look. (Bring mittens.)
(And not to panic you or anything, but this weekend is the last weekend before next weekend. And next weekend is the weekend that includes Christmas Eve, so whatever you had in mind before then, whether it's earning nice points or cross-checking your list with Santa's, you'd best get a move on.)
P.S. Best way to earn nice points? Take your kid to some of the events on our calendar. Keep reading for a few of the top things on our list.....
