Five Things for Today: December 21, 2020

Celebrate the solstice with a walk at Huntley Meadows


1. Happy Solstice! One way to celebrate the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year is with a Winter Solstice Evening Walk at Huntley Meadows led by a park naturalist.  The program runs 4:30-6pm, and cost is $8/person.  It’s recommend for ages 5+.  Read more about the Alexandria park — its woods and wetlands are fantastic to explore with kids — here and here.


2. Last week, Mayor Bowser announced new restrictions for DC starting this Wednesday. Indoor dining and all museums will be shut down for three weeks, and libraries will be limited to curbside pick-up.


3. Cool gift wrapping ideas.


4. The 80’s come back to the future:  Rob Lowe interviews Michael J. Fox on his Literally! podcast. (MJF just published a new book that sounds really good. And if you’ve never read anything by Rob Lowe, I recommend this — he’s a great writer!)


5. Washington Post’s 20 Good Things that Happened in 2020.  (Cheers to #9.)
