It's Christmas Eve, so chances are good you have some plans with your family. Chances are also good for many of you that you need something worthwhile to do to make that family time go better than sitting around and staring at each other over Aunt Ida's peanut brittle. That's where our extensive event listings and Staff Picks come in. 

Here are a few choice opportunities in the area for Wednesday, Dec. 24: 

SPORTS & OUTDOORS | Schweitzer actually has enough snow for skiers to hit the slopes, and Wednesday they can join Santa for some turns and a balloon parade. 

MUSIC EVENTS & CONCERTS | In case you missed our Bloglander post about the event, St. John's Cathedral is helping celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the famous World War I Christmas Truce with a carillon concert

THEATER | In a somewhat related event, The Bing is hosting a one-night-only performance of All Is Calm, a play about that night on the battlefield when enemy soldiers put down their arms and shared a little holiday spirit. Read our story about the production right here, and you better hurry if you want tickets. 

We'll be taking a pause from the What's Up Today? blog for Christmas, but we'll be back to help you make the most of our community on Friday. Cheers!
