Dance in your ugly sweater
8 PM: Have an ugly Xmas sweater, and don't know what to do with it? Head to The Little Door, which is hosting a one-of-a-kind party. The uglier the sweater, the more are your chances of winning some amazing prizes. And, if you can dig up a vintage holiday sweater from the 1980s featuring candy canes, elves, wreaths, or other seasonal motifs, even better. There are many ugly sweater awards to be won, including the Best Couple Combo, Most Likely to get Arrested if Seen in Public and Biggest Loser. Does your sweater have you covered?

Apart from game stalls like candy cane fishing, a fun snow corner and science show, the kids can also get arty at the art station and sing carols along with Santa Claus. The event, for children between the ages 2 and 8, will also have a play area, along with a fun photo backdrop, to click pictures.
