Yes, Christmas is joyful and fun, but sometimes it seems awfully … serious. With exceptions! Dance and theater companies, a circus school, and a dinner theater are having fun putting a bit of a twist or a tweak on our beloved Christmas stories and traditions. Here are some shows this weekend that poke a bit of fun at the “most wonderful time of the year.” Relax and goof it up a bit!
Christmas gift giving can warm up your friends and family well into the new year when you give tickets to any of the upcoming wonderful performances at Portland's Merrill Auditorium. Wonderful dance, music, and family theater now through March:
As promised, we return with details of a beloved and family-owned Christmas Tree farm: Piper Mountain Christmas Trees in Newburgh, Maine, just north of the Midcoast town of Rockland and a schootch to the west of Bangor.
New England is awash in forests and a love for farming traditions, so the upshot at Christmas time is a multitude of places to choose and buy a Christmas tree. One of our favorite places is Christmas Trees of Vermont, a tree farm on Connecticut River Road (Route 5) in Springfield, VT.
Are the Christmas holidays coming at you too fast? Yep, for you and everyone.
