Water-Skiing Santa is back just in time for Christmas.

(Dec. 23-24) Candlelit Christmas
Candles are key in the Christmas celebrations tonight and tomorrow at the National Cathedral. Carols by Candlelight tells the story of the birth of Jesus with low light and plenty of music.

(Dec. 24) Why not water-ski, Santa?
The celebration over at National Harbor tomorrow promises to be a less solemn affair. There’ll be a similar sounding sing-along, but it will be preceded by the Water-Skiing Santa, his Kneeboarding Reindeer, the Jet-skiing Grinch and Frosty the Snowman in a dinghy.

(Dec. 23) Santa Clausterf@%!
Vienna’s Jammin Java has what may be the region’s most raucous Christmas celebration. Folk, polka, rock and metal musicians get together to play holiday songs while foregoing that whole pesky rehearsal process.

(Dec. 23-24) It is, isn’t it?
If your quintessential Christmas movie happens to be It’s A Wonderful Life you’re not alone, as you may have noticed if you own a television. You can see Frank Capra’s 1946 classic on the big screen several times today and tomorrow at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring.

Music: “My Little Drum” by Vince Guaraldi
