it now serves children in need nationwide. Tour the grounds and hear the heartwarming, inspirational

explore the galleries along with a special exhibit “American Quilts” on loan from renowned Shelbourne
Museum. Shop the boutiques of the Old Market this afternoon before a lively Greek dinner at St.
Nicholas Church. Your evening entertainment is A Christmas Carol, put on by the Omaha Community
Playhouse for over 40 years. It’s a top-notch production sure to knock the bah-humbug out of the
biggest Scrooge! (FB,L,D)

Sunday brunch is served in the General Crook Home on the grounds of Fort Omaha following a
tour of the lovingly restored property. The Omaha Symphony really knows how to celebrate the season

missed! Before turning in, join a musical historian playing music from around the world on unique and
curious instruments. (FB,BR,D)
