Celebrating the Holiday Season
The holiday season is in full swing and there are many festive opportunities to get into the spirit of the season in our community. Join us on Thursday, December 2 at 6:30 p.m. on the front steps of the Brea Civic & Cultural Center for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Enjoy live music, photos with Santa, and watch the lighting of the holiday tree. A few other attractions this holiday season include, It’s a Wonderful Life, a holiday classic, on the stage at the Curtis Theatre from December 9-19. Tickets are still available. Then, gather the family for Movie Under the Stars at City Hall Park on Saturday, December 18 at 6:00 p.m. to watch Elf. Bring chairs and blankets to bundle up!
The holidays are also a time for giving. Many Brea families and individuals find themselves in need throughout the year, but especially during the holiday season. If you are considering donating this year, the Brea Resource Center and Brea Senior Center are coordinating giving opportunities, like the Wish Tree, Angel Tree, and Adopt a Senior. There is also the Brea Fire Department’s Holiday Toy Drive, and the Brea Community Emergency Council (BCEC) is collecting gift cards to distribute. The community’s kindness makes a real difference to brighten up the outlook of families and individuals in need. However you celebrate, we hope it’s a joyous one! More information on events and holiday giving is available by visiting the City’s website.
