With Thanksgiving just days away, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas festivities. If you’re looking to get in the mood, there are lots of events around town to help you out. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Macy’s Grand Tree Lighting at Galleria Dallas — You have more than one chance to catch this action. Join in at noon on Nov. 28, or at 6 p.m. on Dec. 6, 13, and 20. The show features ice skating, back flipping, and a “pyrotechnic Santa Claus.” Hey, I just report the news; I don’t make it.
- The Living Creche at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church — Starting at 7 p.m. on Dec. 15 and 16, watch a reenactment of the Christmas story every 30 minutes. For the first time this year, kids can pet the sheep and goats in between shows.
- Preston Royal Library’s “Bob Humbug” Reading — Rolanda Brigham will will be reading this Christmas comedy to children and helping them make crafts. The fun begins at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 16.
