As much as marketing experts would like us to believe, the holiday season is about much more than commerce.
It’s history, traditions, the arts, family experiences and the type of fun that creates long-lasting memories. Sprinkle in Maryland-specific treasures — train gardens, Stoop Storytelling and John Waters — and there is no excuse not to have your planner filled with events this season. (And yes, plenty offer excuses to shop, too.) Start with these options. — Wesley Case, The Baltimore Sun
