The Holly Jolly Handbook is an annual publication, but—for one reason or another—folks are really enjoying this year’s edition, so we wanted to share it with 20× readers. You can also find all of these events (and late additions!) listed at, but it never hurts to have a handy brochure filled with interesting, family-friendly events taking place during the holidays.

While you’re checking out the brochure, you can also take a moment to enter to win a Holidays on the Red prize package, including a one-night stay at Horseshoe Casino & Hotel, a $100 gift certificate to We Olive & Wine Bar, four passes to Sno-Port at Sci-Port Discovery Center, and more. The total value of this prize package is more than $425, and it only takes a moment to enter.
