Boston or DC for holiday trip

The first weekend in December is our 5th anniversary and my husband & I are thinking of a long weekend in either Boston or Wash. D.C. My husband hasn't been to either city and I haven't been in years. Looking for holiday decorations, museums, shopping, nice dinners, etc... Which city would you choose?

I love DC, but I think Boston will be more the thing IMO. They just opened the Frog Pond skating rink last week and it was such a neat place! Boston is such a great city, very walkable and livable, and while we were there they were starting to do some fabulous Holiday decorating. If I could stand the winters,(and afford the housing ;-)), I could live there. Judy

For museums, you can't beat DC - and most free. Decorations? I don't know. Shopping: probably Boston. Dinners: about even. Just my opinion.

Tea at the Ritz
Skating on the Frog Pond
Shopping on Newbury St.
