Boston’s Best 2014 Holiday Events
" When the holidays come around, all of Boston is transformed by the season. Caroling is common, restaurants make seasonal foods, trees are bedecked in lights and shows happen at virtually every venue. It is easy to find a good time. Come welcome Santa and ring in the New Year in ways that are funny, traditional or just plain weird.

Date: Now through Jan. 4, 2015

Faneuil Hall is one of the oldest structures in the city of Boston, but it was not until recently that Blink! became a part of the holiday celebration there. For the third year, Blink! will be lighting up the marketplace with more than 350,000 Christmas lights. Every seven minutes on every night of the extravaganza, the lights will blink to the tune of Boston Pops music. Watch the bulbs come on and off in a dance of light across the trees and structures of this beloved marketplace.
