Riding around town and looking at the Christmas lights with the kids. They get so excited each year!
I love the ACC mascots at the tree lighting uptown! My kids get so excited to see the mascots and Santa, too.
We love to make some popcorn & hot cocoa, play Christmas music on the radio and ride around at night looking at Christmas lights 🙂 It doesn’t cost anything (just gas) and my daughter loves it.
Shared and liked! My favorite holiday tradition in Charlotte is going to see The Nutcracker.
watching Christmas movies!! There are so many good ones!
My kids are still young, so the singing bears in founders hall is a Christmas must for us!!
So many traditions… Love reading Twas the night Before Christmas before the kids go to sleep!!!
Our favorite family tradition in the area in Christmas in Davidson! Its this weekend!!
I love watching my boys do the advent calendar. I put a piece of chocolate in there with a piece of paper with a “good deed” written on it. I love watching them complete the good deed daily.
Daniel stowe gardens is awesome and singing Happy Birthday to Jesus on Christmas Day. If only for 2 minutes the children know the true meaning of the holiday it’s worth it!
We love going to see the Christmas Wonderland of Lights at the Zootastic Park of Lake Norman!!
We love to stand outside & watch Santa ride by on a Fire Truck through our neighborhood, of course with hot cocoa in hand with lots of marshmallows!
We love going to the light shows in the area! Charlotte Motor Speedway, McAdenville (sp?), and Zootastic are a few we love!
Making cookies and visiting a living nativity
We love to ride around looking a Christmas lights, watching Christmas movies and embracing these last few years of Christmas magic. I love that my 7 year old still believes in the magic! BTW..not on Facebook; please don’t hold it against me:)
I love baking & listening to Christmas music with my mom & sister.
We go very year to the Nutcracker Ballet. We love it!
Driving around town looking at all the Christmas lights.
We went to Pjs at the North Pole last year and my son is devastated that I dropped the ball and didn’t get tickets before it sold out. I would love to make this a tradition for us. He loves Polar Express so much he asks to watch it in the middle of the summer!
We have a Christmas Movie party. We all snuggle together and watch a movie while drinking hot chocolate.
So many fun traditions but one of our favorites is our neighborhood cocoa with Santa event. It is always fun to bundle up for some quality time with the Big Guy.
Making Christmas cookies with my kids
Decorating the tree!
preparing for santas arrival on Christmas eve with cookies and watching him approach on the news during tne weather segment is all a close tie to the magic of my son first spotting all the gifts in the morning…one of my fav mom moments
