It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Not only have I been blasting Christmas music for weeks now, I’ve been taking in every moment of festive holiday activities. Today I am going to share with you my top 5 favorite things to do in Boston this holiday season.
First, Christmas tree lightings; there are three main lightings that happen here in Boston, Faneuil Hall, Boston Common and the North End. (I try to make one if not all of them.) To tag off of that, my second favorite thing to do is check out all of the lights in the Boston Common. There is something so magical about the Common this time of year when you add a little snow and some lights.
Third, ice skating on the Frog Pond; this is something that I have done since I was a child with my family. This year, I went for a friend’s birthday last weekend. It was so fun and to make it even better, it snowed! FYI, they have skates you can rent, so just bring yourself.
Fourth, and new to my list is to go to Metbar for Hot Cocoa flights. This was suggested by a friend at work and I’m excited to give it a whirl. I’ve done some research and everyone I’ve talked to has raved about them. Stay tuned for a post to follow! Finally, see a show; I’ve seen some amazing Christmas productions around this time of year. Be sure to check online for both in city, and local, shows that are available. You cannot go wrong with a night out and a great show!
