It’s another weekend for ugly sweaters, festive sweets, holiday concerts, and pop-up markets. Mark Die Hard’s 30th anniversary with a Christmas party, learn to make chocolate truffles from scratch, meet Santa at a community day, celebrate Kwanzaa with a dance concert, listen to carols in a cathedral, shop for trendy gifts at a fashion and lifestyle flea market, and hang out with a pie pro a local bakery. If you need an escape from the holiday madness, see Miss Saigon at the Kennedy Center or laugh along with Amy Schumer at MGM. Here’s everything you need to do in DC this weekend.
