A December weekend is often filled with holiday to-do's. Philly families can bake delicious goodies, select the perfect tree, untangle strands of lights to decorate the house, and try to capture the perfect picture for holiday cards to send to loved ones. Once these tasks are complete, turn your attention to our amazing event calendar, which is filled with lots of seasonal fun.

Learn about the Swedish culture with a visit to American Swedish Historical Museum for its annual Lucia Fest, complete with music, food, and special procession. Step back in time to 1840s London for the annual Narberth Dickens Festival or colonial times with a trip to Elfreth's Alley. Celebrate with a holiday parade in Coatesville, Yardley, Philadelphia or attend a musical parade recognizing The Cat's Pajamas.  In addition, Hanukkah begins this weekend so, as expected, there are plenty of menorah lightings and celebrations throughout the Delaware Valley.
