Q: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SF HOLIDAY TRADITIONS?

A: Smuin Christmas Ballet. The ballet performanc­es happen in two parts. The first act features classical Christmas music and formal ballet dance performanc­es by the company, and the second act features contempora­ry Christmas. Fun Christmas musical numbers offer rock classics and lightheart­ed music.

Q: WHERE DO YOU SEND GUESTS FOR A TRULY SF HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE?

A: Visit the enormous gingerbrea­d house at the historic Fairmont hotel, located on Nob Hill. You can walk through the house, gazing in the windows at the rooms within. With advanced reservatio­ns, up to 10 guests can dine inside the gingerbrea­d house! It runs from Nov. 30-Jan. 1, 2020.

Q: WHERE CAN VISITORS GO FOR FUN WINTER ACTIVITIES? A: Visit the ice-skating rink at Justin Herman Plaza, overlookin­g the Ferry Building, or the ice-skating rink at Union Square.

For a real San Francisco experience, don’t miss Drag Queens on Ice, located at Union Square, on Dec. 5.

Q: WHAT IS A PERFECT GIFT TO TAKE HOME FROM SAN FRANCISCO?

A: A keepsake from San Francisco to take home would be a cable car ornament for your Christmas tree from the Cable Car Museum. The museum store also offers books, clothing and collectibl­es. Admission to the museum is free, offering visitors the rich history of the cable cars.
