It's that time again. If you want a low-key holiday closer to home, Anthem has three relatively quiet events the whole family can enjoy with a minimum of fuss.

Holiday in the Park
Friday, December 7, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Anthem Community Park lights up your life! Meet friends and neighbors for some holiday cheer. Sing carols, sip hot chocolate, and ride the Daisy Mountain Railroad.  Click HERE for more info.

Holiday Extravaganza with Santa And Mrs. Claus
Saturday, December 8, 9:00 a.m. to noon
Join Girl Scout Troop 2422 at Safeway Regency Center for oodles of fun, fun, fun! Bring a non-perishable food item to donate, in exchange for oodles of fun with Santa and Mrs. Claus--and the elves! Enjoy singalongs, storytelling, crafts, a cakewalk, facepainting... and more! Bring your own camera for pictures with Santa.



Enter the 2012 Anthem Holiday Lights Contest
Let your creativity shine, but be sure to do so by the Friday, December 14 deadline! Prizes will be awarded in two categories: Classical Design, traditional light displays, and Sights and Sounds of the Holidays, for light displays synched with music. Homes will be judged the week of December 17. Register here.

A Little Farther Afield . . .
If you don't mind a little driving, Linda and Dr. Dick Buscher have done a stellar job summarizing the best holiday events in the North Valley, in their article in last week's In&Out Magazine / Anthem News.
