Three things to do this week (Nov. 13-16)

1. Can’t get the kids to sit still during a ballet performance of the Nutcracker each holiday season? Then perhaps the lovable TV duo Max and Ruby — the cartoon bunny siblings known to kids since 2002 — can give young ones an appreciation for classical music as they’re whisked away into the classic Nutcracker Suite in a live performance this Thursday. Max and Ruby become characters set to the music of Tchaikovsky; hitting the stage at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $29.50 each and can be purchased by calling 604-507-6355 or at

2. Step back in time this Saturday (Nov. 15) as the Viking Winter Festival comes alive at the Surrey Museum from 1 to 4 p.m. The Reik Felag Norse Culture Recreation Society will re-enact a traditional winter solstice Viking feast for visitors through costumes, crafts, food and stories of yore. History buffs attending the festival can even make a Santa Lucia candle crown and solstice feast gifts at the by-donation event. The Viking Winter Festival begins at 1 p.m. at the Surrey Museum (17710 56A Ave.).

3. If you just can’t get enough of spicy Indian food, then there’s good news for you at the Surrey Chapters (12101 72nd Ave.) this Saturday (Nov. 15). Best-selling Indian cookbook author Anupy Singla will be leading a talk on the health and curative benefits of traditional Indian spices at the launch of her latest cookbook, Indian For Everyone: The Home Cook’s Guide to Traditional Favourites. The free, open to the public event begins at 2 p.m.
