It's the last day to sneak into the Smithsonian Institution Museums before they close their doors for a once-a-year, well-earned Christmas break.

(December 26 & 27) SMITHSONIAN TAKES A HOLIDAY Otherwise, you'll have to wait until the 26th to see Wapos Bay: The Hunt, a stop-motion animated movie series at the National Museum of the American Indian at Fourth Street and Independence Avenue Southwest at 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The clay-mation kids of Wapos Bay love adventure: their playground is vast northern Saskatchewan where modern life and ancient traditions meet.

(December 26, 2009-February 25, 2010) HOLIDAY DISPLAY If you find it difficult coming down after tomorrow's Christmas present high, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History at 14th Street and Constitution Avenue Northwest presents Holidays on Display. For those who truly cannot get enough, the exhibit is open through next February, examining the art and history of holiday parades and department store window displays.

(December 26, 28, 30) KWANZAA And the Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum is open for Kwanzaa, holding workshops on the holiday's guiding principles Saturday, and continuing Monday and Wednesday at the Southeast D.C. Museum at 10:30 a.m. These hands-on music, art and craft workshops are geared for the whole family, led by world-renowned music historian Brother Ah, local storytellers and other artists.
