I have been watchng Saturn slowly catching up with Jupiter for the last few months without realizing that it would merge into an historic "Christmas Star" event. They will be closest together on Dec. 21, I urge you to go out and locate them before that so that you can get a sense of how they move. That is right after sunset, in the low southwest. Here is a NASA diagram. Enjoy, and they go very well with eggnog and . . ....... whatever.
