December has no shortage of Christmas events and programming (check out our other holiday listing here too), but there is also plenty to be enjoyed that has nothing to do with the Big Man in the red suit. Explore an exhibit, take a yoga class, and cozy up around the campfire. We have those listed for you, too.
On the Second Sunday of each month, the High Museum hosts a day of family fun that includes FREE admission for every member of your family. In addition to taking in all the amazing exhibits within the museum, there are many special activities created for children and families.
View 250,000 lights within an 8-block radius. This is a wonderful FREE light display, and I love that you can walk around, vs. having to drive through. While here, gather around the grand 50-foot tall Christmas Tree, and experience the magic of a realistic snowfall Sunday-Thursday at 6:00pm and Friday and Saturday 6:00-9:00 pm at the top of each hour. (Snow is weather permitting).
It’s Christmas Eve, 1943, the Feddington Players are broadcasting their interpretation of Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark. As mayhem ensues, the company is forced to improvise the ending as a film noir mystery, featuring a hardboiled detective, a femme fatale, and an absurd rescue of Tiny Tim (and the Lindbergh baby) from the clutches of a Hitler-esque villain named Rudolf. Tickets: www.act3productions.org 6285-R Roswell Rd., Sandy Springs. 770.241.1905

Mutants, superheroes and ordinary citizens who abandon their humanistic instincts to fight for justice. That’s what many people think of when reflecting on nostalgic memories of historic comic book series. But if you take a look beneath the façade of capes and gadgets, you may observe the author’s true intention, social justice and activism through art.
Throughout contemporary history, comic books have taken an attention to social issues. Comic books and movies like March by John Lewis, Stan Lee’s X-Men, and even our most recent revamp of Black Panther use witty pop-culture references and flashy imagery to address issues like racism, ableism and sexism, in a way that is digestible to even our youngest audiences.
