Ho ho holiday!

Thanksgiving is over, which means that it is time to plunge whole-heartedly into the Christmas season! At tonight’s tree-lighting ceremony on Fifth Avenue, you can sip on hot cider, listen to carols from Opera On Tap, and catch a glimpse of Santa himself, cruising down the street in a pink Cadillac while his reindeer rest up.

5:45–6:30 pm at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Fourth Street in Park Slope. Free.

Bard of the Bardo

Greenpoint singer-songwriter Deborah Smith has turned her sorrow at the death of her father into a gorgeous, haunting collection of blues-infused tunes for her latest album “Hearing in the Bardo.” The Colin Brown’s Organ Trio, featuring Smith’s piano player, will follow in Freddy’s front room.

8 pm at Freddy’s Bar [627 Fifth Ave. between 17th and 18th streets in Greenwood Heights, (718) 768–0131], www.freddysbar.com. $5.

Florida man

All your friends have been telling you see the indie drama “The Florida Project” — so you can one-up them by catching tonight’s 7:15 pm screening at Nitehawk, featuring a discussion with director Sean Baker afterwards. He will also introduce his previous flick “Tangerine” at 9:30 pm, which benefits the Ali Forney center for queer youth.

7:15 pm and 9:30 pm at Nitehawk Cinema [136 Metropolitan Ave. between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street in Williamsburg, (718) 384–3980, www.nitehawkcinema.com]. $16 each.
