Journey to Bethlehem – Dec. 7-8 – Harvester Christian Church – You've probably heard the story of the birth of Jesus many times, but this weekend, you can actually experience it. Take a journey back in time, and immerse yourself in a land of shepherds, angels, Roman soldiers and magi. Outdoor "journeys" depart throughout the evening, and sign language interpreters are available. Admission is free. For more information and to check out photos of last year's event, head to http://bit.ly/1bLmmNF.
Black Nativity: A Holiday Celebration – Dec. 6-8 – Harris-Stowe University Emerson Performing Arts Center – It's early December, so it's officially permissible to get into the whole holiday thing (unlike back in October, when Wal-Mart was inexplicably selling Christmas candy). What better way to get in the spirit than checking out Black Nativity: A Holiday Celebration? The performance combines a traditional African nativity story with song and dance.

Endangered Wolf Center: Holiday Boutique – Dec. 7 – Eureka, Mo. – Is finishing up some holiday shopping, hanging out with majestic wolves AND helping an endangered species on your to-do list this weekend? If so, check out the Endangered Wolf Center holiday boutique, where you can buy some totally awesome t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and other apparel. Not only that, but in the spirit of the holidays, the center is offering $10 mini-tours throughout the day. For more information, go to http://bit.ly/1gbtjtn.
Central West End Window Walk and Holiday on the Plaza – Dec. 7 – Sure, it's fun to look at window displays…but it's even more fun to judge window displays (this is America, after all)! And that's what you can do this weekend at the Central West End Window Walk and Holiday on the Plaza, an event in which merchants will beautifully decorate their holiday windows, offer some mad discounts and even offer special treats. Visitors can vote for their favorite window and potentially win Central West End gift cards! Musicians, street performers and even Santa will perform in the midst of this "window display' Hunger Games.'" For more information, check out http://bit.ly/1d3dyzQ.
The Quiet Concert Series – Dec. 7 – Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center – When you think concert, you might think "noise." This weekend, you can challenge that thinking, and enjoy an aural experience that expands on the growing trend of minimalism in noise music. Yes, we don't know what that means either, but hey: weekends should be about expanding your horizons. The show is open to all ages. Admission is $5.
