While the COVID-19 pandemic has canceled countless events this year, event organizers have made their creativity clear, either figuring out how to present events virtually or rework them so they can continue safely in person. And the holiday season is no different.

This month, dozens of holiday traditions have been reinvented so they can be enjoyed online or in person with social-distancing measures in place. Get cozy at home, or grab your hat, gloves and mask to enjoy these holiday events.

Radio Play: “A Christmas Carol”

Spokane Civic Theatre and Minneapolis playwright Barbara Field’s adaptations of “A Christmas Carol” go together like milk and cookies. Civic first produced four adaptation in the late 1970s.

The play also will air at 7 p.m. Dec. 16, 4 p.m. Dec. 20 and 2 p.m. Dec. 24.
