We have moved into Stage 2 of the winter holiday advisory in Columbia/HoCo. No longer are we observing the first glimpses of seasonal events on the horizon. No we are in full-on, hot and cold running Holiday Fun. It’s holiday watch versus holiday warning, if you get the reference.
My recommendation: dive in if that’s your thing, taking suitable precautions, of course. Stay home with some hot cider and a good book if it isn’t your thing. It’s not compulsory.
Some suggestions for this weekend:
The Howard County Autism Society is hosting a drive-though visit with Santa event this Saturday from ten am to noon.
Join us for a fun, drive-thru visit with Santa Tommy right in the HCAS parking lot on December 11th from 10am-Noon! Greet Santa right from the comfort of your own car and receive a holiday goodie bag. We’ll also be collecting items for our annual Holiday Gift Drive to benefit individuals and families in our autism community most in need this holiday season.
No registration required. The HCAS office is located at 9770 Patuxent Wood Drive in Columbia, MD. Follow the signs to the drive thru route in our parking lot where our elves will guide you to a visit with SANTA!
Also on Saturday, at Clarksville Commons:
At the Chrysalis in Downtown Columbia:
My personal recommendations: dress warmly, don’t forget your folding chairs and it might be good to bring a blanket. I’m excited about choral music at the Chrysalis - - let’s have more!
Moving on to Sunday…
From 1 - 5 pm at The 3rd at the Columbia Lakefront:
