While Boston is basking in 9 hours of sunlight on this shortest day of the year, I'm making do with 4 in Belgium. If you need your Winter spirits raised, like I do, there's nothing better than getting out to do some singing and shopping in the snow.
Roslindale Holiday Wander Thursday 5-8PM
Lots of shops are offering deals and treats as the shops stay open late so you can get your gift-buying done. Some highlights: Moroccan tasting at the Birch Street House & Garden, free churros at El Chavo and refreshments at the Thrift Shop
Beacon Hill Christmas Concert Saturday 7:30PM
Bell ringers start at Louisburg Square and go house to house ringing bells while the audience goes along with them singing. The website describes this as a quiet, gentle event, though with a bunch of bells, I wonder how quiet they can be?
As always, more events on the calendar at Beantown On the Cheap. Until 2012 - Cheers!
