With Thanksgiving now out of the way, you can indulge in the countdown to Christmas with everything you've got. And if you want to go out at all this weekend, you pretty much don't have a choice; it's a holiday event or nothing.

Below are the best options for your precious free time this weekend. Don't like what you see? Lucky for you, we have a much longer list of the city's best events.

Casa Mañana Theatre presents Frosty the Snowman
Everybody knows the classic holiday song "Frosty the Snowman," but what would it look like in real life? That's the fantasy that Casa Mañana creates starting on Friday, as it produces a musical adventure that will surely delight kids and adults alike. The production plays at Casa Mañana Theatre through December 23.

Texas Christkindl Market
Multitudes of shoppers will crowd the malls or other stores for Black Friday deals, but for a different kind of shopping experience, head to Globe Life Park in Arlington. It's hosting the annual Texas Christkindl Market, which features gifts, holiday decorations, authentic German cuisine, holiday beverages, live entertainment, children’s activities, and much more. It continues every day through December 23.

Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra presents Home for the Holidays
The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra kicks off the season with its annual Home for the Holidays concert. The concert, which is performed four times at Bass Performance Hall through Sunday, features all of your favorite holiday songs, singalongs, and a special indoor snow flurry.

Jubilee Theatre presents Do You Hear What I Hear
The holiday production from Jubilee Theatre is not the traditional kind you'll find from most other theater companies. This one tells the story of one down-on-his-luck man who gets lifted up by simple acts of kindness. Playing through December 27, it features many recognizable holiday songs and the unique style of Jubilee Theatre.

Stage West presents Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol
Multiple theater companies put on the classic A Christmas Carol every year, but what if the story were told from the perspective of Scrooge's partner, Jacob Marley? Stage West takes on that story, which tells exactly how Marley became doomed to forever wear those chains, along with a few other surprises. The play runs through December 20.
