The December issue of beijingkids is full of fun-indoor activities and excursions to keep you and your clan happy over the holidays.
Give yourself ten ways to celebrate Christmas in Beijing, and catch the spirit of Christmas and Hannukah from three families. Also, get a peek from behind the scenes of Beijing Playhouse’s wacky production of Cinderella.
