The Christmas creep phenomenon is behind us. We’ve officially entered the bona fide winter holidays season.

If you want to feel like you’ve wandered onto the set of a Hallmark Channel movie, The Banner can recommend multiple events to check out this weekend. We’ve also included a few indoor activities in case you’re sick of your house but don’t want to deal with the rainy, temperamental weather.

Here are some fun things to do this weekend.
