happy hanukkah!

photo by: scazonKnown as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is observed by lighting a Menorah which holds 9 candles.

One is for each night of the holiday, and an extra light called a shamash—meaning guard or servant. Traditionally placed higher than the others, it’s lit each night and is used to light all the other candles.

Hanukkah begins tonight at sunset—Happy Hanukkah!

Where: Music Box Theatre, Chicago
When: Friday, December 16-24, 2011

For the past 27 years, holiday revelers have come to the vintage Music Box theater to watch two classic films of the season—‘White Christmas’ and ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’.

What makes the evening a holiday tradition is when Santa Claus, accompanied by the theater organist, leads a sing-along of the most cherished Christmas carols before the screening of each film.

In case you never knew the words to Auld Lang Syne, just follow the “bouncing ball” as the lyrics are projected onto the screen and enjoy!

a klingon christmas carol: chicago

When: now thru December 31
Where: The Greenhouse Theater Center

The timeless story of Scrooge being visited by three ghosts in the hours before Christmas morning is told as only Dr. Spock could—in klingon*.

Needless to say, it’s equal parts theater, performance art—and a new holiday tradition.
