CELTIC HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS
Salt Lake is host to several events celebrating the Yule, also know as the festival of Alban Arthuan to the Celts. It marked when the Druids gathered for the winter solstice. This season, you can hear Utopia at the Cathedral Church of St. Mark bringing back Celtic favorites with songs and instrumentals from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man and Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. You can also hear the celestial voices of multi-platinum Irish singing sensation Celtic Woman as they present Home for Christmas with the Utah Symphony. The event showcases music from the all-female music ensemble's second Christmas album, Home for Christmas, including holiday favorites "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "Silent Night." Utopia: Cathedral Church of St. Mark, 231 E. 100 South, 801-322-3400, Saturday, Dec. 17, 8 p.m.; Sunday, Dec. 18, 5 p.m., suggested donation $10-$15. Home for Christmas with the Utah Symphony: Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, Wednesday, Dec. 21, 7:30 p.m., $40, UtahSymphony.org

CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT FOR KIDS
Do you have a young bird-lover in your life? Bring them and the fam to the Christmas Bird Count for Kids (CBC4Kids) hosted by Tracy Aviary. CBC4Kids is a great way to introduce children to bird identification and is appropriate for ages 7 and up. Count results are reported to the official Salt Lake Christmas Bird Count, so kids get to see how they can make an impact through this important citizen science project. The Christmas Bird Count for Little Chicks is also offered this year. Designed for ages 7 and under, this program features bird-themed stories, games and crafts that you can join with your little one at your leisure.
