Thanksgiving is over which means it’s time to put up the Christmas tree (if you haven’t already), get out the menorah and prepare to celebrate whatever holiday means something to you and your family. Regardless of what that may be, December means peppermint, snowflakes, and gathering with friends and family. Here are some local events, pop-ups, and drinks to get you in the holiday spirit.
