There are more than just carols
Free Christmas Events in Perth 2013

Christmas is coming to town whether you like it or not. Unfortunately there's no avoiding it, even if you're best friend with Grinch or Scrooge. We can't even go buy a loaf of bread or a bottle of milk without being temporarily blinded by all the glittering Christmas baubles.

If, on the other hand, you're more in tune with elves and welcome Christmas with all your heart, you could satisfy your Christmas spirits past, present, and future by showing up in all the listed below.

For easy categorisation, I've divided them into two: Carols and Other Christmas Events. "Carols" deal mainly with people singing and happen in the evening, while "Other Christmas Events" are for events that may happen at any time of day and have more activities, not just singing. They are listed based on dates starting from the earliest.


They might call it Carols in the Park, Carols by Candlelight, Carols at Sunset, etc, but what is in a name? A carol by any other name would sound as sweet, eh?
