2013 Atlanta Christmas Events

I am seriously in Christmas overdrive. My oldest brother is flying in from Californina tonight and I'm so excited! I haven't seen him since I went to Cali for Spring Break in March. Our house is decorated, we're playing Christmas music (and a little Beyonce), and I'm wrapping gifts this weekend! 
Since Dec. 1, my friends and family have been asking me for suggestions on fun Christmas events in ATL. As the Real College Student of Atlanta, it's kind of my job to know…so I don't mind people asking and I love making suggestions. And I wanted to share them with you too. Here's my edited list of fun Christmas events in ATL via Access Atlanta.
I put an (*) beside the events I've been to or that I'm going to this month, eek!
