Top Holiday Events in Ardmore, Merion & Wynnewood

Get out and share the holidays with fellow citizens, not just fellow shoppers.

In case you haven’t noticed, the season ’tis fully upon us. Holiday celebrations and events have been coming fast and furious.

Here’s a guide to some of them. For those that we missed, please let us know in the comments below, or send an email (photos welcome!) to Tom.Walsh@Patch.com.

We’ll simply build on this list (and subtract) as the holidays roll merrily along.

 Learn about and donate to local charities as alternative gift-giving options, along with more than 40 vendors for holiday shopping. Hanukkah treats, baked goods and lunch will be on offer, too—and gift wrapping.

“Miracle on 34 th Street”  at the BMFI. The is not in this Patch, but we have adopted it as the Official Ardmore Patch Movie Theater at least through the holiday season, because a.) although it is a crying shame, there is no movie theater in Ardmore, Merion, Wynnewood or the Haverford section of Lower Merion; and b.) because the place is so very cool. Check out this modern classic story of Ralphie Parker and his desire for an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle (with a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time).
