It's been a big week for transportation news here in Boston. If you're planning to fly back to Boston after the holidays--or travel to and from Logan Airport or East Boston in early 2014, don't plan on using the Callahan Tunnel. As of December 27, the Callahan will be closed until March 12.

Give the gift of reading this holiday season (and it can be our little secret that it was done on the cheap)! One of my favorite events, the Harvard Book Store Winter Warehouse Sale, is scheduled for this upcoming weekend, December 7 and 8 at 14 Park Street in Somerville. The sale will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days, and is free and open to the public.

The list continues to grow: Three more holiday markets offer even more opportunities to find distinctive gifts for everyone on your list. The wares at these three markets promise to be unique, unusual, and authentic. If you have a tricky gift recipient to buy for, or want to support local artists and small businesses, check out these markets.

Hanukkah starts early this year, the night before Thanksgiving (I've seen it rebranded as Thanksgivukkah around the Internet). Take a break from feasting and shopping to attend a Menorah lighting in and around downtown Boston - there are several to choose from this December (and earlier) around the city!
The annual lighting of the Boston Common Menorah will take place nightly November 27 through December 5, near the Park Street T stop facing the State House. Lightings take place at sundown between 4 and 4:45 p.m. each night. The lighting event is free and open to the public. In past years, attendees have included state legislators, the governor, and other local dignitaries.
