Candy canes on Christmas trees, menorahs and candles on mantels — the tip of the iceberg of the seasonal magic behind those doors.

You’ll glimpse domestic perfection that could never last in real life, plus help a worthy institution. But the real reason everyone goes is to nose around some pretty spectacular city homes. This year’s stroll features eight residences of city leaders past and present; a holiday party will follow at an undisclosed location.

The cost is $35; pay and pick up tour brochures beginning at noon at Preservation Worcester, 10 Cedar St.

The Worcester County Light Opera Company offers a stage adaption of the Frank Capra film classic. Psst, a twist: This adaptation, by Joe Landry, takes the form of a live 1940s radio show.
