Free and Easy

By Fritz Hahn

Every week, the Going Out Gurus suggest ways to enjoy Washington's cultural scene without spending any money. Have an idea for us? Send it to events@washingtonpost.com.

Wednesday
Celtic Christmas at the Kennedy Center
Performers from the Culkin School of Traditional Irish Dance step lively on the Millennium Stage while local musicians play traditional music on fiddle, guitar, bodhran and other instruments.

Thursday
Fernando Botero: Abu Ghraib at the American University Museum
Botero's large canvasses are profoundly disturbing, but they will make you think about the Abu Ghraib scandal in a new way. Try to visit this exhibit before it closes Saturday.

Friday
Kwanzaa Family Program at the Anacostia Community Museum
Bring photographs and other mementos to create a family wallhanging. Reservations are required; Call 202-633-4844.

Saturday
The Art of the American Snapshot at the National Gallery of Art
Tiny pictures shine in this exhibition, which celebrates the mundane and ordinary in American life over the last century and a half. This weekend is your last chance to visit.

Sunday
Last Train Home at the Kennedy Center
The stellar roots-rock band, formerly of Washington but now based in Nashville, treats the audience to tunes from its seasonal "Holiday Limited" album as well as original alt-country favorites.

Monday
New Year's Eve Celebration at Wonderland
DJ Meistro keeps Wonderland's packed dancefloor moving with a mix of reggae, hip-hop and funk.
