Read This: The Holidays Have Officially Begun In Chicago

2
We've been seeing trees and boughs of holly go up in retail stores for weeks, but the games officially begin tomorrow. It's time for the Chicago Loop Alliance's fourth annual Winter WonderLoop, a festive program that promises nonstop holiday action. From now until December 31, there will be "Random Acts of Holidays" taking place around the Loop. These spontaneous surprises include everything from free pop-up photo booths and hot bevvies to strolling carolers and fun street-side giveaways — we're so there.
There are also over 100 ongoing deals and events taking place, which are fully listed on the WWL website (bookmark alert!). Seriously, we already spotted discounted parking (a major bonus considering the downtown rates), a cupcake-decorating class, and a 50% off massage deal we're looking to take advantage of (seasonal stress, anyone?). And to keep you in the holiday spirit, don't miss out on any of the "10 Wonders of the Loop," which includes Chicago traditions like ice-skating in Millennium Park and the wreathing of those iconic Art Institute lions — you're never too old for a good old-fashioned dose of nostalgic fun.
