A selection of cultural events taking place in Estonia this week as curated by culture.ee: "Some of you might hate us now for starting early, but those of you who love all things Christmas will love us even more. We are not actually doing this in vain; the First Advent is this upcoming Sunday already!"

Ongoing - Sunday, Jan. 14

Christmas at Niguliste Museum
St. Nicholas' Church, Tallinn

The museum is offering a special Christmas treat, "Christmas Party in Old Tallinn," which will consist of the Estonian capital's grandest Christmas tree, a museum tour, organ music, small surprises and a pleasant and delicious gathering in cooperation with the Reval Café. This one needs to be booked in advance, but  you can also visit the lovely museum without a reservation. It is a glorious place, we highly recommend it!

Christmas Jazz 2017: Stacey Kent (USA)
Nordea Concert Hall, Tallinn

For the first time, Estonian audiences will have the opportunity to enjoy the grand collaboration of Stacey Kent, one of the world's most genuine jazz classics artists, and the wonderful Estonian Dream Big Band. Hurry, these tickets are going fast!

Sunday, Dec. 3 - Saturday, Jan. 6

Christmas music festival "Church Holidays in the Land of Mary" 2017
Various locations, Estonia

Miraculous Christmastime filled with beautiful music in churches and music lounges all over Estonia surely sounds like a calming experience in our raging world!

Sunday, Dec. 3 - Sunday, Dec. 7

Christmas City Tartu 2017
Town Hall Square, Tartu

You might know about the vibrant Christmas world at Tallinn's Town Hall Square, which we definitely recommend visiting, but a parallel world will soon be open in Tartu's Town Hall Square as well. We might have a white Christmas, we might not. But one thing is for certain — it won't feel like Christmas if we don't make it feel that way ourselves!

Monday, Dec. 4 - Friday, Dec. 15

Christmas at Alpaca Land
Wile Alpaca Farm, Järva County

What could be better than feeding alpacas, making yarn from their wool, making gingerbread cookies, and practicing your Christmas poems for Santa? It is said that visiting this farm feels like visiting your grandparents' house. It might actually be even better, though, because, you know — grandparnents' house with bonus alpacas!
