Top 10 Christmas Events in Joburg

Trying to figure out things to do in Johannesburg over the Christmas period - like many things is near impossible, when you google Christmas is Johannesburg, you either get information on hotels, or events that happened back in 2009!!! To make it easier for us all (particularly the new comers to Jozi) - I have started to put together a brief calendar of events I have been too over the past few years (and got carried away so there are more than 10....). If you know of any more - please do let us know in the comments section at the bottom of this article.
