‘Tis the season for holiday cheer, which is most prominently signified by the most famous of all Christmas trees. But since the tree at Rockefeller Center is a little too far away, head on down to the Ellipse for a glimpse of the National Christmas Tree, which will be lit Thursday night. Tickets are already sold out for the ceremony, but grab a cup of hot chocolate and a gingerbread man and take a stroll to see the twinkling lights this weekend.

If you have $10

The quirky filmmaker Miranda July’s movie “Me and You and Everyone We Know” was met with much critical success at 2005’s Sundance Festival and Cannes Film Festival. But if you weren’t in the know and missed it while it was in theaters, the film will be shown at the National Museum for Women in the Arts (1250 New York Ave. N.W.) for $4 Thursday night at 7 p.m.

If you have $20

To add an extra sparkle to your holiday season, go hear the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington’s performance of “FabYULEus,” its annual holiday concert. Performing some classic holiday favorites with a twist, the chorus has three performances this weekend at Lisner Auditorium, with tickets starting at $19.
