This Weekend in Houston: Dec. 22-24, 2017

Happy Holidays, Houston! – Dec. 22-24, 2017

This holiday season is about to hit its crescendo this weekend, Dec. 22-24, 2017, in Houston.  We are in official final countdown to Christmas.  Since the big day falls on a Monday, I expect that this weekend is going to be especially horrendous for shopping.  If you can, get your Prime shipping squared away and then get out of the house and do something fun…far, far away from the malls!

Here is our weekend roundup of things to do in Houston – events and sights for, Dec. 22-24, 2017, but be sure to check out the complete GHM calendar and full Guide to Houston Winter to find all the big seasonal events and where Santa will be smiling!
