Selection Reminder: Christmas Eve Open House at the Morse Museum!




Saturday, Dec. 24Christmas Eve Open House

This event is your antidote to all the Christmas-prep madness that’s consumed your soul during the past several weeks. Step inside the dimly lit lobby of the Morse Museum on Christmas Eve and let the chamber music wash away the nightmarish memories of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Walmart shopping that have left you so little room for good cheer and all the warm, fuzzy stuff that’s supposed to make your spirits bright this time of year. Sure, it sounds sort of stuffy and dull to listen to flutes and violins and look at stained-glass windows and pottery on Christmas Eve, but trust us: It is so cathartic and soothing and pleasant and pretty that it’ll give you the energy you’ll need to cope with the sibling rivalries, drunk uncles, bratty kids who didn’t get what they wanted from Santa and whatever else Christmas Day may throw at you. – Erin Sullivan (9:30 a.m.-4 p.m., with music from Raintree Chamber Players from 1-4 p.m., Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, 445 N.
