For many of us it has become a time where we immerse ourselves in mundane, associated tasks and forget the whole point of the season, which ultimately, is to be uplifted. All around us are signs that this is a season of cultural ascension and climax. Cultural arts can transcend the menial nature of day-to-day holiday tasks and help us slow down and experience joyfulness and thankfulness. Here are 10 cultural events to help elevate and uplift your holidays.

I appreciate hearing the many meaningful choices we have to enhance the Christmas season. Nicely written and informative. Thanks for correcting the impression we got that the Tabernacle Choir would be performing at the Messiah. Much better news to hear that some members are just "sitting in" with the rest of us who want to sing. Now the challenge will be to choose! So much fun, so little time...


No Festival of Trees this year?

I just wanted to say "Hi" and that you are missed!
