Here are six things to know before you set your alarm for Friday.
1.CLASS ONLINE: Secondary and elementary students at Union Public Schools will be moving to distance learning starting Friday. The district said the shift is due to a high number of COVID-19 cases among adults in the district. Classes will remain online through the end of the year.
2.DONATE TOYS: The Broken Arrow Fire Department continues its sixth annual toy drive. You can drop off new, unwrapped toys at any Broken Arrow fire station.
3.SLEIGH RIDE: Winterfest carriage rides start Friday in downtown Tulsa. Tickets are $65 per couple. You are required to wear a mask if you’re riding with anyone outside of your immediate family.
4.SANTA SIGHTING: The Will Rogers Museum will hold a special Christmas celebration. There will be live music and crafts at the event, along with a Santa sighting. Admission to the event is free and masks are required.
5.HOLIDAY LIGHTS: Woolaroc in Bartlesville is also in full swing for the holidays. This year, things will be a little different with no wagon rides or Santa in the museum, but families can still drive through and enjoy the more than 750,000 lights on display.
6.PLAYOFF SEASON: High school football continues as undefeated Collinsville visits undefeated Carl Albert in the 5A semifinals. Wagoner is set to face Cushing at home and Heritage Hall will take on Lincoln Christian.
