With Hanukkah just days away and Christmas in just two weeks, this weekend offers plenty of opportunities to celebrate, shop, join others in song, or revel in those distinctly December aromas of gingerbread and hot cider. There are gift shows galore, several production of "The Nutcracker" and its variations, and even a "Frozen" show at the Southampton Arts Center for all the Anna and Elsa fans out there. Use this as a guide to make your list (and check it twice) of happenings through Dec. 14.
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14
Carmen Adriana, an East Hampton stylist, will be the guest host at a shopping event at the East Hampton Theory store on Saturday.
In an email announcing the event, Ms. Adriana said that “Theory is always on my short list when I begin building a wardrobe for someone” and that when the store asked her to host the event she “calmly said yes and then did the happy dance.”
She will offer her styling expertise at the store, which is at 46 Newtown Lane, from 2 to 6 p.m.
