CHEERY, BEERY: Bushwick bar fave Goodbye Blue Monday hosts a Tree-Trimming Party, wherein you make your own ornaments while swilling beer and listening to live music courtesy of indie bands like Living in Polaroids. 9PM.
FUNNY: Laugh your troubles away at the 35th Annual J Hobart B All-Star Christmas Spectacular, which is neither 35 years old nor probably involves someone named J Hobart B - but this spoof of holiday variety specials should stock you with enough belly laughs to get you through yuletide with the relatives. Peoples Improv Theater, 8PM.
DARK: Does your idea of holiday fun involve goth music and "black-magic" tricks performed by a real live wizard named Greg? Then Manic Holiday Madness at Williamsburg's Trophy is for you. 9PM.
