If you’re in Boston in December, you’ll see festive lights and sparkling Christmas trees everywhere as the city embraces the coming of winter. Holiday shoppers fill the sidewalks and stores, and music is in the air. Best of all, you’ll find lots of special holiday events: The Nutcracker, Black Nativity, Boston Pops, and other special shows.

On Thursday, December 4th, join us for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Boston Common near Frog Pond. This exciting event takes place near the Visitors Information Center on Tremont St and stars the special tree sent as a gift from Nova Scotia and 80+ other lighted trees throughout the Common and Boston Garden. There are games, prizes, and more at the Frog Pond Skating Rink.


Taking The T: Take the Green Line or the Red Line to Park Street and walk over to Frog Pond. Alternatively, you can get of the Orange Line at Downtown Crossing and walk the block over to Boston Common from there.
