It’s a very quiet weekend! Event planners must assume we are all traveling, shopping, or busy with rivalry weekend. And they’re probably right. So I’ve extended the weekend recap to include activities happening during the next week as well – there are several tree lightings and other great things going on. Of course, there are all of these ongoing holiday events listed here.
