CNY Events to Raise Holiday Spirits

Here are this weekend’s CNY events to raise your spirits and put you in the holiday mood.

Happy holiday season, SNT readers! We’re in the middle of it. If you’re trying to avoid the inevitable shopping, here are your weekend list of CNY events to help you constructively procrastinate.

Hear those sleigh bells jinglin’? Or is it the sound of the rain slapping the roofs and cars and running down the gutters? It’s OK. We may not see rain until March, considering the amount of snow we’re expected to see.

We have candlelight guided tours, holiday-themed and non-themed concerts, sports and a few of the several plays and musicals hitting the stages of various venues. They’ll get even the most hell-bent of Grinches smiling.
