The holidays of December are occasions to celebrate, worship, think about our lives and the people we know, share our joys and sorrows, feast and reach out to those in need.

They are many occasions to get out of the house, for much is on the calendar.

Institutions throughout the Charleston area are offering special holiday fare, from concerts to movie screenings, craftmaking sessions to educational programs. A lot is free. A lot is family-oriented.

The Charleston Ballet Theatre is producing its classic “Nutcracker” ballet again. The Charleston Symphony is offering brass and choral concerts. Charleston Stage presents “A Christmas Story.” Downtown church doors are thrown open to anyone looking for a sacred space, looking for a choir concert or just looking around. And the public libraries have scheduled all sorts of events, most for younger people.

The Post and Courier has compiled a large selection. Among such varied events, it’s possible that changes were made since information was received, so it’s a good idea to double check schedules with the venue or organizer.

Now, off you go. The city awaits, with its abundance of treats.

Happy holidays.
