December Festivities

Global Immersions - Monday, November 21, 2011

December is the time to celebrate the holiday season and in Boston there are many ways to enjoy and celebrate while learning about U.S. culture! From the Christmas tree lighting and the lighting of the Menorah on Boston Common to the Nutcracker ballet, take a look at a few happenings our city has to offer for the holiday-filled month – then get out and enjoy!

Christmas Tree Lighting

This year marks the 70th annual lighting of Boston’s official Christmas tree in Boston Common, a gift from Nova Scotia, Canada. On Thursday, December 1st, join the festivities from 6:00-8:00pm.  The evening includes various performances by the Radio City Rockettes to the Boston Children’s choir as well as a performance by local skaters on the Boston Common Frog Pond.   

 

Ice Skating on the Frog Pond

The Boston Common Frog Pond is located in the heart of Boston Common. For a small entrance fee, ice skaters 14-years and older can skate for as long as they like and for everyone else in the heart of downtown Boston.  Keep checking the website for an update on opening day (delayed due to warm weather)! http://www.bostonfrogpond.com/winter-programs

 

Menorah Lighting

A giant menorah is lit for a sequence of eight days to celebrate the Jewish holiday Hanukkah in the Boston Common at the Brewer Fountain.  This year, Hanukkah begins at sunset on December 20th and ends at sunset on December 28th. The lighting of the Menorah will begin at 4:30pm and will occur each night at that time. There will also be special presentations and entertainment during Hanukkah. 

The Nutcracker Ballet

The Nutcracker is the perfect holiday event. With beautiful music written by Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky, it is undeniably a performance that the whole family will love. Performances until December 31st, 2011. Click the link below to book your tickets! http://boxoffice.bostonballet.org/storefront/c2012NUTCRACKER-p0.html
