A Beautiful Boston Christmas in 2023


Boston, known for its pivotal role in American history and brimming with colonial charm, is the perfect place for Christmas celebrations. As the city decks its halls and the winter chill descends, Boston’s iconic Freedom Trail ignites with holiday cheer. To kick off the season in grand fashion, be sure to attend the 80th Annual Boston Common Tree Lighting, the lighting ceremony of the city’s official Christmas tree and the trees throughtout Boston Common and the Public Garden.

Looking to get the holiday shopping started, then look no further than “Seaport’s popular European-style Winter Holiday Market at Snowport”, according to Boston Discovery Guide. “The market showcases 120+ small businesses selling art, jewelry, home goods, apparel, and other gifts and crafts, plus seasonal treats such as hot chocolate, freshly-made waffles, craft beer, and more from 19 different food and beverage spots.” And there is always time for a Christmas show, and what better than Beantown’s take on an all-time classic Boston Ballet: The Nutcracker!
