Boston Christmas Home Tours
Christmas in Boston gives you the opportunity to visit homes decorated in a gorgeous and festive fashion for your pure visual enjoyment and perhaps to give ideas on how you can incorporate some of the ideas into your own holiday ornamentation.
This will be the 24th Annual South Boston Christmas House Tour. Featured will be five homes beautifully decorated and highlighting the creative and exciting visions of local designers. This long-standing South Boston tradition is a charitable event with the proceeds going to support the numerous social services provided by Catholic Charities Labouré Center.
The tour will also give you the chance to do some Christmas shopping at the House Tour Christmas Sample Sale Shoppe.
