The Weekly Plan-It: Dec. 20-Dec. 25

Highlights of the week ahead

Thursday, Dec. 20

Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day

6 p.m.-7 p.m., Volunteer Ministry Center & St. John’s Lutheran Church.

The public is invited to gather to remember those homeless and formerly homeless Knoxvillians who have died in 2012. Knoxville’s 4th annual Homeless Memorial Day features a candlelight walk beginning at Cherokee Health Systems’ Broadway Clinic (at VMC, 511 N. Broadway), followed by a brief memorial service at St. John’s Lutheran Church (544 N. Broadway).

Friday, Dec. 21

A Christmas Carol

7:30 p.m., Clarence Brown Theatre (1714 Andy Holt Ave.). $20-$40.

Oh, go on. Time to get into the holiday spirit. You know you want to!

Saturday, Dec. 22

KHFF Apocalypse Xmas Party

8 p.m., Relix Variety Theatre (1208 N. Central St.). $5.

Okay, so A Christmas Carol doesn’t do it for you? Join the Knoxville Horror Film Festival as it celebrates the winter holidays with a screening of Steven C. Miller’s new slasher movie, Silent Night, a remake of the 1984 cult classic Silent Night, Deadly Night. Slasher Santa will be available for photos!

Sunday, Dec. 23

White Christmas

2 p.m., Tennessee Theatre (604 South Gay St). $6-$8.

All right. So maybe the murderous Santa didn’t get you in the holiday mood, either. But this one’s gotta do it: lots of Technicolor silliness with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney, not to mention the songs of Irving Berlin.

Monday, Dec. 24 & Tuesday, Dec. 25

Christmas Eve/Christmas

All day.

Okay, take some time off. Now are you in the holiday frame of mind?
