Like dominoes, this year we are celebrating Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the 12 Days of Christmas all following on the heals of Thanksgiving. While there are plenty of holiday events and Christmas activities near Boston to keep kids busy and feeling festive throughout November and December, we’ve rounded up our picks of Boston’s top holiday events during the magical season of joy and wonder. There are beautiful outdoor light and tree displays (some are free to visit!), a cool gingerbread house making class, and a chance to see the Polar Express in 4-D.
Keep that holiday and Christmas spirit going all season long with our list of Boston’s Best Holiday and Christmas Light Shows and our Holiday Fun Guide.
