It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and Hanukkah, as evidenced by the abundance of holiday happenings in Westchester and the Hudson Valley!

The recurring holiday events taking place throughout the month are now supplemented with a fresh batch of holiday fanfare, including Dickens' Christmas Carol. For a nature-themed holiday excursion, learn about the science of snowflakes. Holiday performances continue, including one by the centuries-established Vienna Boys Choir, and a multifaceted exploration of art forms (both performing and visual) awaits at the free Family Day. Also free is a three-day event full of charm (and Santa) at the Thomas Paine Cottage
