Let’s keep things short and sweet this week. Tomorrow is the winter solstice, the first day of winter, when the night begins to fade and the day begins to grow. Let there be light on what has been a dark season. In a world turned upside down in so many ways, we are four sundowns from the beginning of Hanukkah, five days from Christmas, six days from the beginning of Kwanzaa, and gloriously close to the fresh slate of a new calendar year. Let there be hope, let there be peace, let there be joy. From ArtsWatch to you, happy holidays.
A FEW THINGS STILL HAPPENING, as the bustle slows down – still time to catch up on shows you missed during the snow and ice:
Christmas Revels concludes tonight and tomorrow at St. Mary’s Academy downtown; this year’s edition is Commedia Italiana.
