Page 8 POST-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 21,2012 The shopping has begun, the parties have started and the holidays are heret This week I covered a little bit of everything leading right up to the end of it all, New Year's Eve. With all that's going on in the world today, it's so important now more than ever to put aside a little extra time for the ones you love. Hold them close and enjoy some holiday fun. The Downtown Boston Holiday Market .... A spe- cial shopping event is in its fourth year and better than ever. Thousands are visiting daffy to browse and buy with the artisan vendors found inside the white tent. If you still haven't finished your holiday shopping yet, not to worry the Holiday Market is open daily through Christ- mas Eve and closes at 2:00 pm on December 24 t. You can find jewelers, glassblow- ers, bakers and soap mak- ers. This tent has something for everybody. It will also re- main open the week after Christmas, through Satur- day, December 29 th. There is even a bonus to keep the kids happy, Santa appears daily from noon-2:00 pm and also on Saturdays and Sun- days from 3:00-4:00 pm.
