9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. | The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, 445 N. Park Ave., Winter Park | 407-645-5311 | morsemuseum.org
We look forward to this event every year – step inside the dimly lit lobby of the Morse Museum on Christmas Eve and you’ll forget all about the malls, the shopping, the family drama and your pending holiday credit-card bill. Immerse yourself in the beauty of illuminated Tiffany windows and let the sounds of carols and chamber music remind you that Christmas is supposed to be about more than the noise of holiday tasks. Sure, it sounds sort of stuffy and dull to go listen to flutes and violins and look at stained-glass windows and pottery on Christmas Eve, but trust us: It is so soothing and pleasant and pretty and cathartic that it’ll give you the energy you’ll need to cope with sibling rivalries, drunk uncles, bratty kids who didn’t get what they wanted from Santa and whatever else Christmas Day may throw at you.
