  • There’s a Christmas Eve celebration this afternoon and evening at the Independence Events Center.
    It’s from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the center’s main arena. It’s free.
    Organizers say there will be music, caroling and what’s billed as an unusual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Also, there’s a 30-minute exhibition soccer game to commemorate the Christmas Day truce in World War I, during which soliders on opposing sides played soccer.
