Swinging Christmas

The December holiday season is upon us … and is it ever an eventful one!  There is something to do for everyone on your list, whether it’s taking the kids to see Santa (he really gets around the Lowcountry!), finding unique gifts at area holiday markets, attending any number of performances and New Year’s Eve celebrations with your special someone (but, unlike Santa, you can only be at one place at any one time!), and so much more!  See for yourself on our December calendar of events and let us know what activities you decide to partake in this month:
