To add some fun into our Home for the Holidays week, we thought we’d ask YOU to share some of your favorite things about the holidays! On each site, we’ve got a question we’d like you to answer. Share your thoughts here in the comments, and then hop to the other sites to find out what we’d like to know!
Where we live, we’re blessed with weather that allows us to do a lot of activities outside to celebrate the holidays. But I know that no matter what your weather is like during winter, you’re bound to enjoy some festivities out of doors.
For my family, it’s hard to pick one. Some of the fun ways we celebrate the season outside are by watching the annual boat parade where boats get all decked out with Christmas lights and music, walking around the famous local neighborhood “Christmas Card Lane” to look at all the Griswold-esque houses, and our newest tradition of going out to breakfast and a walk by the beach on Christmas Eve.
But my favorite event is probably our church’s annual celebration called Christmas Under the Stars. We sit around under a big tree strung with lights, sing Christmas carols and hear a reading of the Christmas story; then we enjoy sweet treats and warm drinks– it’s the perfect outdoor holiday celebration!
