The holidays are here and, in true Magic City style, a wide range of events for everyone. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza or just enjoy spending time with your family, friends and loved ones, there is something that is sure to fill you with all the wonder of the season. From me to all of you, Happy Holidays!
Beginning on Sunday, December 22nd and running through Monday, December 30th, Hanukah, or the “festival of lights” is a time of giving thanks and praise. Hanukkah traditions include the lighting of the menorah, dreidel game, and, in a tradition shared by many holidays, food and gifts. Some of this year’s Hanukkah events around Miami include:
Rock, Drinks & Dreidels – Sky Brickell – 35 SE 9th St, Miami – December 24, 2019 – 7:30pm – 11:30pm
Brought to you by YJP Miami, this is THE Hanukkah party, celebrating in style with Miami’s premier rooftop event.
Grand Menorah Lighting at Brickell City Center – December 26, 2019 – 5:30pm
With traditional food, arts & crafts, music and more, this event is fun for the whole family.
Who doesn’t love Christmas? With the lights, food, parties and the spirit of the holiday everywhere you turn, Christmas events run the gamut from subdued and spiritual to spectacular. A must-see Christmas event is the Nights of Lights. Running from Friday, December 13th through Wednesday, January 1st at the beautiful Pinecrest Gardens, this family-friendly event has everything needed to delight kids and kids-at-heart all set to thousands of twinkling lights and gorgeous botanical displays.
Christmas meals with loved ones are a must during the holidays and brunch out makes a perfect choice for celebrating while letting others do the cooking. Christmas brunches are available throughout the city with some of our favorite options at The Setai Miaimi Beach, the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne and Acqualina, Sunny Isles Beach where we hear Santa will be stopping by!
Rounding out the holiday celebrations, Kwanzaa runs from December 26 through January 1st each year and is the culmination of a year spend working towards seven life principles: unity, self-determination, helping others in the community, cooperative economics, sense of purpose, creativity and faith. Kwanzaa events can be found around town with something for adults and kids alike with the shared mission to work together as one.
