In 2017, there are exactly 40 days from Thanksgiving Day to New Years Day.

Enter “40 Ways to Holiday.” Each day between November 23 and January 1 will have at least one event worth checking out, along with plenty of giveaways along the way! Find the full list of days here.

The Children’s Theatre Company (CTC) is bringing back audience favorite, “Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for the holidays. The production was commissioned, developed and premiered at CTC in 1994 and was performed on Broadway in 2006. The all-ages show runs Wednesdays through Sundays until January 7. As of Thanksgiving, many of the shows are either sold out or have limited seating, but shows during the week between Christmas and New Year’s have some of the best availability. “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” runs 90 minutes with a 15 minute intermission. Children newborn to three years can get a lap pass for $5. There is a sensory-friendly performance on Friday, January 5 at 7:00 p.m.
