'Tis the season for holiday strolls. Both South Boston and Beacon Hill will have tree lightings, caroling, and other merriment tomorrow evening, while the North End rings in the season on Friday. A number of South Boston businesses will offer discounts during the stroll, including 20 percent off at Ku De Ta and Habit; $3-holiday cocktails at The Playwright, and 10 percent off purchases at American Provisions. In Beacon Hill, Moxie will offer 15 percent off of purchases, while The Red Wagon will give a coupon for 10 percent off purchases if you make a donation to the store's toy drive benefiting Rosie's Place and Toys for Tots.
