December kind of snuck up on us, But it’s time. Get jolly. Right now. This weekend, Santa — Bad Santa, if you like, or Black Santa, too — is already here. The Baby Doll Tree is out and shining on E Pike. And don’t think you can try to avoid him this weekend and get away with it. Santa will be back next weekend — Conservatory Santa, anyone? — too.
So, age your eggnog, and polish your candy canes. There are pop-ups — Black Owl Market this weekend, for example, latkeh cook-offs, a Julfest, and parties galore: 2017 Holiday in the Park will again bring hundreds of luminarias to Volunteer Park on December 7th and The Seventh Annual March of the Mistletomosexuals is coming December 16th. While you’re at it, don’t forget to Shop the Hill.
You’ll find all of these and more on the CHS Calendar. Happy Hilladays!
