Five Things: December 19, 2023


1.  Enchant the kids for free!  Enchant, the world’s largest Christmas light maze and village, is teaming up with Washington Gas to give away 10,000 junior tickets to the DC area community, giving more families the opportunity to experience the holiday light event. Tickets are available for ages 3-17, for admission now through December 21. All minors must be accompanied by an adult, there is a maximum of two complimentary junior tickets per order, and they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Use the promo code FREEJR23redeem here.   You can view scenes here from last year’s event and read a KFDC review (from the first season it was here in 2019) of the holiday attraction.


2. Three immersive experiences recently opened in the area:  I already shared details about Disney Encanto x CAMP and the Hot Wheels Champion Experience, both at Tysons and great for young kids.  And last week Dopamine Land, a walk-through, multisensory experience full of colorful, interactive installations, opened at Friendship Center in  Friendship Heights.  All ages are welcome, and tickets start at $17/child, $23/adults.


3. If you want to leave the cooking to someone else or just like to celebrate the holidays with a festive feast out, Eater has a round-up of restaurants offering Christmas and Christmas Eve dinner (and brunch), with options for for both dine-in and take-out.


4. Last minute gift ideas and stocking stuffers that will arrive in time for Christmas:  This super fun group game (we’ve played with multiple families), string lights that display photos, the best inexpensive sunglasses, and bike lights.


5.  Sweet fancy Moses! Some inspiration for your holiday parties. 🙂
