{Have A Holly Jolly Christmas}

As a native of the Baltimore/DC area, the Christmas holiday brings a wave of events for people of all maturity levels. This past weekend, I didn't hesitate to get in on the $1 admission to the Baltimore Science Center (if you thought 'Newton's Corner' was fun as a child, you have no idea how much more fun it is now!). After letting my playful side run wild, I stopped by Fells Point's Olde Tyme Christmas to participate in the eggnog contest between the shops and restaurants (Slainte Irish Pub, you got my vote!). Despite the cold, there are some activities just too good to pass up. For those of you looking for great ideas in Baltimore, check out Christmas on 34th Street for a light display you will never forget or enjoy the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's Holiday Spectacular. This weekend, Annapolis' East Port Yacht Club will host its Parade of Lights with boat owners flaunting their Christmas decor. In D.C., be sure to see the National Christmas Tree and ZooLights 2010 at the National Zoo. There are many affairs to be a part of this holiday season (and free too!!) so keep an eye out, bundle up, and don't forget a thermos of hot chocolate :-)
