Looking for ways to occupy family members visiting from out-of-town? Here’s three ways to get in the holiday spirit without breaking the bank.

  • The Dallas Arboretum’s “Twelve days of Christmas” display features Victorian-era gazebos that represent the iconic song. Peruse the extravagant exhibits during a 3/4-mile walk through the garden. The event costs $10-$20.
  • Check out Christmas decorations at Vistadale and Timberhollow Circle cul-de-sac.
  • It wouldn’t feel like the holidays if we didn’t revisit “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” Head to Alamo Drafthouse Saturday at 10 p.m. to watch the Griswold family’s shenanigans.
