Day 358: Christmas Eve in Bethesda

It’s December 24th and many families will be heading out for Christmas Eve services at local churches.  Thanks to Bethesda Patch, you can conveniently find the one that’s right for you.  Check it out here.  Services begin as early as 4 PM and the last one begins at 11 PM to carry you over into the wee hours of Christmas Day when the midnight bell tolls indicating that it’s time for you to don your kerchiefs and caps and settle in for your long winter’s nap.

White Flint Mall Train

If you’re looking for something fun to do with the little kids this evening to keep them distracted from obsessing over the gifts that lay under the tree, try visiting the White Flint Mall in “North Bethesda” (if you can stand the crowds of last-minute shoppers).

For $1.50 per rider, you and your little cherubs can take a festive ride around the mall on their really cool train.  The conductor is charismatic and the train whistle is quaint.  I’m not sure whether the young or the young at heart enjoy it most!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
