The Christmas Revels, held annually in Harvard's Sanders Theatre, usually continue for several days after Christmas. This year, the show was scheduled to close on December 29. Instead, tomorrow's performances will be the final ones for 2021:

Regrettably, and with the safety of our cast, crew, and audience in mind, Revels has made the difficult decision to cancel our six post-Christmas performances (Dec 26 – Dec 29). We encourage you to join us virtually for our extended run, streaming December 30 – January 9.

Update: The big silver ball was found in a yard on Beryl Street.

A Roslindale resident is seeking help today finding a lawn ornament, "a large silver ball, bigger than a basketball" that blew away in the wind last night. So if you're anywhere near the Mozart School, like Beryl Street, Cornell Street or Havana Street, keep an eye out for one of those Christmastime silver balls.

The National Weather Service advises you do that because we're expected to get a mighty wind on Christmas Day, not to mention potentially record setting amounts of rain (Harvey Leonard's looking at 2 1/2 inches in Boston), which is probably not what we want to see on top of all the snow.
