Your Kick-Off Guide To The 2021 Holiday Season in DC


On this day of giving thanks, we at The Jenn Smira Team have so much to be grateful for — our loved ones, our amazing clients, and of course — the vibrant community we feel so lucky to call home. Another thing on our list of gratitude this year? The fact that we live and work in a city where the holiday buzz is only getting started. Read on for our list of the best ways to make the most of the most wonderful time of the year.

Get Into the Spirit with DC Holiday Lights

This holiday season, Main Streets throughout the District are joining together to bring DC residents a holiday experience you . With DC Holiday Lights, residents are invited to take a stroll down each of the participating corridors to experience a dazzling array of lights and decor, enjoy holiday promotions, and shop local.

Attend A Festive Boat Parade

Celebrate the holidays at The Wharf and see the beautifully decorated boats cruise by on the Potomac along with more activities. Decorate ornaments to get into the spirit, go ice skating (the rink will be back!), plus warm up by the big fire pit and visit the lighted Christmas Tree. Bring the whole family to meet Santa and make memories during this annual DC tradition.

➤ Why not make an evening of it and make a reservation at any of these top DC hangouts?

Catch A Christmas Carol at Ford’s Theatre

Join the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future as they lead the ornery Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey of transformation and redemption. Originally conceived by Michael Baron, this music-infused production captures the magic and joy of Dickens’s Yuletide classic. Acclaimed actor Craig Wallace returns to play Ebenezer Scrooge. Recommended for ages 5 and up. Performance is two hours (including a 15-minute intermission). More details here.

See How The Grinch Stole Christmas at National Theatre

In this holiday musical, sets and costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations help transport audiences to the whimsical world of Whoville for thetimeless story behind the true meaning of Christmas. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the holiday-loving Whos. It’s been a Broadway hit hailed as an “extraordinary performance” by the New York Times! More details here.

Take A Lantern Light Tour at Tudor Place

Celebrate the holiday season at Tudor Place! Alongside friends and family, explore the Historic House by candlelight to discover celebrations of winters past. Then, journey through the lantern-lit gardens on a guided-tour as you learn about the Peter family’s Christmas traditions. Capacity is limited and pre-registration is required.
