    My son is 3 this year and this is the first Christmas he really “gets” all the excitement and traditions around this time of year. I am new to the North Shore as a resident and very excited to find wonderful things such as this to do with my little family (its just him and I).
    Thanks for highlighting this and other great activities for north shore families!
