1940s CHRISTMAS EXPERIENCE
If you're 16 or over, here's a Santa experience to remember. Come dressed in your favorite '40s-inspired outfit and dance the night away! Small children are welcome if you call ahead, as Santa Claus is set to make an appearance at Christmas in the 1940s. There's a white-elephant exchange ($5 limit), story time ("Twas the Night Before Christmas") and a costume contest. You might want to check out the Utah Military History Group (Facebook.com/UtahMHG) to find an authentic costume. Kafeneio Coffeehouse, 258 W. 3300 South, 801-485-1282, Friday, Dec. 2, 5-10 p.m., free

PHOTO EDITING IN LIGHTROOM
Do you want to create images that can sell an idea or influence a population? A simple image on Instagram can change the world, and you can learn how from lifestyle and adventure photographer Aaron Brimhall at Photography Post Editing in Lightroom. Beginner and professional users alike can benefit from his step-by-step demonstrations of editing his own work. The instruction is followed by a Q&A session in which you can learn everything from composition and exposure to equipment and how to grow your own personal or brand following. Be sure to bring your laptop with Lightroom installed and raw photos ready to edit. Impact Hub Salt Lake, 150 S. State, Ste. 1, 385-202-6008, Monday, Dec. 5, 6-8 p.m., $50-$100, Bit.ly/2fwKeIx

HEALTH CARE CONFERENCE
Now you really have something to worry about: your health care. The Utah Health Policy Project helps navigate the unique and persistent challenges that face Utah, and how you can help create a system that works with or without the Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Car Act: Will a New President Make a Difference? includes a panel of experts including Lorena Riffo-Jenson, director of government contracts at Molina Healthcare; Robert Spendlove, Utah House of Representatives; and Austin Bordelon of Leavitt Partners. If there is a short window of bipartisan cooperation, what will they attempt to fix? And does the change of administration mean that challenges to the validity of the ACA will go away, or will health reform remain partisan and controversial for many more years? Utah Cultural Celebration Center, 1355 W. 3100 South, West Valley City, 801-433-2299, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 7, $30, Bit.ly/2gpYw2q

TOASTMASTER SKILLS
Now's the time to learn how to speak with confidence and influence the people in the room. Join Weber State University's Wildcat Toastmasters Club. It's open to everyone, even if, or maybe especially because, you're intimidated by speaking in public. You'll not only learn new speaking skills but leadership tips, as well. Weber State University, Lampros Hall, Room 218D, 3848 Harrison Blvd., Ogden, Friday, Dec. 2, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., free, Facebook.com/WildcatToastmastersClub
