One of the most beloved stories ever told would have to be The Nutcracker, which is typically your child's first introduction to classical ballet. This fairy-tale about the beauty and magic of Christmas and the ways that love and joy can transform dreams into reality is always satisfying. This Tchaikovsky work of art is a lovely way to familiarize children to the delights of great theater and there’s no need to travel far to experience this wonderful and much-loved Christmas story. Here is a list of upcoming The Nutcracker performances on Long Island in 2015.
And be sure to take a look at our Long Island Holiday Fun Guide, including non-Nutcracker holiday shows.
Sitting on Santa’s lap is a necessity for most kids during the holiday season, and there are a slew of places around Long Island that offer the opportunity to meet St. Nick while also enjoying a yummy breakfast or brunch.

Thanksgiving is a feast usually prepared and served in our homes. But sometimes it is really lovely to take a break from the hot kitchen and let someone else do the cooking, cleaning and moving furniture around. Drop the day-long prep for Thanksgiving and head out to one to these Long Island restaurants that are serving up a turkey dinner. This way, you can maybe enjoy a Thanksgiving run, volunteer for those in need or (gasp!) relax a little.
Just be sure to call ahead for reservations and have a happy Thanksgiving! And for more tips and activities this season, check out our Long Island Holiday Guide.
