Eliminate the mania out of your Monday.

For a large-scale sight: The "Largest Wreath on the Main Line" is housed at Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens (631 Berwyn Baptist Rd., Devon, Pa.) and is available for your viewing and photographing pleasure from 8 a.m. until sundown.

For crafts: 'Tis the season for holiday cards. Make your own at North Bowl (909 N. 2nd St.) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. today. They'll provide the ink, — and the artist: Sarah Moore will offer complimentary hand lettering — stamps, cards plus tasty treats: cookies, hot apple cider and hot cocoa.

For movie night: How's this for a double feature? "Hobo With A Shotgun" and "Troll Hunter" play back-to-back tonight at the Trocadero Theatre (1003 Arch St.). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the first film starts at 8 p.m.

For a season premiere: The 14th season of First Person Art's StorySlams begins tonight at World Café Live (3025 Walnut St.). Listen as storytellers spin a yarn about family memories — or get up and share your own! Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins an hour later.

For grooves: Jazz drummer Wayne Smith Jr. will perform as a part of the latest in the Mysterious Travelers Concert Series at the Free Library's Central Branch (1901 Vine St.). He and his recently formed quintet bring the vibes starting at 7 p.m.
