While Christmas-themed pop songs, mall madness, and that stupid TV commercial where someone gets a Lexus topped with a big-ass bow might have already turned your life into a bit of a jingle-bell hell, it is the season to be jolly, so go ahead and un-Scrooge yourself by embracing the holiday season in all its gluttony and glory. Fortunately, Austin has plenty of fun and festive activities that will keep you sane and entertained all month -- even when you're forced to listen to "Santa Baby" for the 600th time.
