It’s about the time of year when people start getting their lasts in–last-minute shopping, last turns of the year and last looks back. There’s plenty of that this weekend, whether it’s a final holiday market or a tree lighting. But mostly, it’s a time to celebrate. So get dressed up for a winter formal or take the time to gather with others to sing the carols. It’s all on the menu this weekend:
