What Should I Do in December?

I'm new to town. I've been here a grand total of three weeks. So what does a new resident of the Twin Cities do for the holidays? What are your favorite events or concerts? Any December Minnesota traditions I should be aware of? Sure, I could look at the event calendar, but I want your suggestions.

On a different note, have you seen these "flash mob" videos? Here's one of the better ones, staged by Opera Company of Philadelphia.
