Sing along with your favorite Wiggleworms teachers – at home

We LOVE Wiggleworms, so we will definitely be tuning in to the free Wiggleworms Holiday Livestream (presented by Gallagher Way) this Saturday December 5th at 10am, and again on Sunday December 13th at 4pm! We are excited to see our favorite teachers, and sing some fun holiday songs.

Explore the beloved Chicago Christkindlmarket virtually

Although I’m still in denial that we’ll be missing our Chriskindlmarket tradition this year, they have gone to great efforts to bring the experience into our homes virtually! Check out the events calendar here. We’ll definitely be tuning in to the storytime with the Christkind this weekend – Sunday at 12pm! They also have a fun online marketplace, where you can shop for mugs from years past – and some of your favorite German treats! Shop here.

Take part in a brand new holiday movie experience downtown

This event sounds PERFECT if you are looking to get out of the house! Miracle on West Madison is Chicago’s newest holiday drive-in movie experience! Expect twinkling decor, live elves, The Grinch, Santa and Mrs. Claus and many other favorite characters. Admission is per car and means you can bring unlimited guests with just one ticket per car. Get your tickets here!

Bundle up & stroll by the beloved Macy’s windows on State Street 

If you’re anything like me, the fact that every holiday activity this year requires a ticket or a reservation is getting a little stressful! Luckily there are still some super fun activities that don’t require pre-planning, and that includes the holiday window display at Macy’s on State Street! This holiday season, Macy’s will celebrate the undeniable spirit of first responders, essential workers, marchers for equality and Chicagoans who showed their grit, good humor and hopeful spirit during a tumultuous year in a series of window displays taking the form of a thank you letter. The windows displays will be available to view through January 3, 2021!
