Solstice, Hannukah, and Christmas: Many Holiday Activities This Weekend

Holiday activities reach their crescendo this weekend, with events to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah and the Solstice.  

For Christmas, there’s the Living Creche in Dennis.  Did you know, this treasured tradition started in 1982 when a fire destroyed the plaster Nativity, and, with no time to replace it, a suggestion was made to use live people and animals?  True Cape Cod Holiday fact.

For Hanukkah, there's a public menorah lighting outside Macy's at the Cape Cod Mall on Saturday, celebrating peace and unity. 

And for the Solstice, there’s musical festivities in Woods Hole, courtesy of the Solstice Singers. 

You could also choose yoga, as Yoga Neighborhood hosts three simultaneous sessions of Yoga Nidra in three towns on Sunday, to mark the winter solstice. 

Steve Junker and Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll discuss upcoming events every Thursday during All Things Considered. This week's conversation is posted above - give it a listen.
