5 Things To Do: December 17 to 21

Songs and sleigh rides to get you in the seasonal spirit.


Watch the ultimate Christmas classic

See the heartwarming family classic to put you in the holiday spirit as three Ghosts of Christmas show Scrooge the value of giving. A Christmas Carol, now in its 19th (and final) season at the Citadel, is universally beloved for its dynamic themes and uplifting message. The production runs until December 23.
