29 Events for the Weekend of December 6 – 8

By D. Lanier Shook                               December 4, 2019

Okay, so its the Christmas Season and I’ve got a list left over from where I was recovering from Thanksgiving, so I’ve got to post and run. But the events this weekend are sooooo good and soooo numerous that I’ll probably end up saying several paragraphs about them. (Just imagine what I’d say if I had plenty of time. Why, I could probably send a semester discussing the events this weekend.)

Okay, you don’t want to forget all the great theatre this weekend, especially A Christmas Carol at LOGOS Theatre. No one sees Santa coming down the Chimney, but you can this weekend at Chimney Rock State Park. Furman University is presenting Handel’s Messiah, only one of many great concerts out there. Of course there are several great Christmas parades in the area so check out that link.

Finally I have to give a shout out to the Charlotte Hornets playing two home games this weekend. Thank God the Hornets are back in Charlotte. They’re actually called the Hornets because that area of North Carolina was called “a #!&&#$# hornet’s nest” by Lord Cornwallis. (Its true! Check it here.)
