Do dogs wear ugly Christmas sweaters? That question may be answered at the Loring-Greenough House on Dec. 1 when the historical house hosts Mrs. "Claws" for a family holiday photo opportunity with all two- and four-legged family members.

Along with its Precious Pooch Holiday Photos event, the Loring-Greenough House is hosting numerous events throughout December.

Here is a schedule:

Dec. 1: Holiday Open House -- celebrate the holidays in the newly restored kitchen for cookie decorating and mulled apple cider. Random Chants will fill the house with carols.

Dec. 1: Holiday Dog Portraits -- photos will take place in front of the House's seasonally decorated entrance. There will be holiday-focused dog accessories such as antlers, bows and mistletoe. There is a $10 charge and all proceeds go to the Loring-Greenough House preservation and programming.

Dec. 1 & 2: Annual Holiday Art Sale -- there will be eight artists selling their art on Saturday 11 am to 5 pm and 11 am to 4 pm on Sunday.

Weekends through mid-December: Wreath and Tree Sales -- Christmas trees are being offered by St. John's Church and the wreaths, paperwhites and centerpieces being sold are decorated by the House volunteers. Trees and wreaths will be available until December 16 or while supplies last. Sales are from 10 am to 4 pm.

Dec. 9: Chamber Music Concert -- a chamber music concert featuring students from the Walnut Hill School for the Arts will perform a chamber music concert featuring the works of Haydn and Mozart. Tickets are available by clicking here.
