Even though winter doesn't officially begin until December 21, let's be honest: the first snow has fallen, the temperature has dropped and all around Greater Cincinnati, holiday arts are in full bloom. The perennial favorites are all there: "A Christmas Carol" at Playhouse in the Park, "The Nutcracker" at Cincinnati Ballet, "Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some)" at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company.

But they're not alone! Holiday traditions new and old can be found all over the region — so many it can be hard to keep track. That's why we've created a handy Holiday Arts Guide over at ArtsWave Guide. Just click on the link or the image above and you'll find a comprehensive list of the hottest (or coldest) arts experiences of the season.

Here's to an arts-filled holiday season!
