Last Minute Christmas Things to do in Atlanta

Merry Christmas!  I myself have not been in the Christmas spirit this year, but one of my besties in her small-ish kids are coming down this weekend so in the procress of looking for things to do I realize just how much there is to do in Atlanta to get in the holiday mood. Of course being the weekend before Christmas (and Hannukah) this is definitely a last minute type of list. Still I thought I’d share for my sewist peep in ATL. ***
