Three things to do this weekend (Dec. 12 to 14)

1 How did early Surrey settlers celebrate Christmas? Find out at the Pioneer Christmas Celebration at South Surrey’s Historic Stewart Farm. Admission to the drop-in event, complete with craft-making and educational activities, is by donation on Saturday (Dec. 13) from noon to 4 p.m. The Historic Stewart Farm is located at 13723 Crescent Rd., South Surrey.

2 Enjoy music and a sing-a-long with friends this Saturday (Dec. 13) in the Grove. Located at the Newton Recreation Centre Ice Arena, partake in free hot chocolate and cookies, blessings by the Circle of Elders, a prayer song by Chief Dan and music by Music Therapists for Peace. Please bring a handmade ornament from recycled materials to hang in the Grove or canned food and/or unwrapped toys, which will be donated to charities. The free event takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. For information, call 604-598-5754.

3 It just wouldn’t seem like Christmas without hordes of holiday craft fairs, and this weekend is no different. Stop by the Show Barn at Cloverdale Rodeo Fairgrounds (17798 62 Ave.) on Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 13 and 14) for a Christmas shopping weekend of more than 150 talented artisans and crafters. The first 50 entrants each day receive a swag bag loaded with goodies! The Cloverdale Christmas Craft Fair runs both days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., $5 entrance fee, kids 12 and under get in free.
