Culture compass: Christmas trees, new museums and Tiny Desk Concerts

With Thanksgiving behind us, Christmas is now in full swing — and the Union Depot has you covered in the early-holiday-spirit department. Their annual tree lighting will be complete with music, fireworks and a screening of “Elf.” There will be snacks for purchase, but make sure to bring your own blankets and folding chairs for an extra level of cozy. While you’re there, you might as well check out the "European Christmas Market" on the East Plaza and get started on those holiday season gifts, too!
