More Ways to Celebrate the Holidays

It’s that time of the year.

You know, the one with the all the jolly Christmas cheer.

The time when people bundle up in their colorful, comfy Christmas sweaters.

Some may say that it has never been any better.

You try to look out the window, but there’s frost on the glass.

So you go to the fireplace, and sit on your… rear.

What could make this any better you might say.

Here are some ideas that might become a tradition that will stay.

Jimmy Nash Park

While it is most definitely cold outside, the Jimmy Nash Park is a wonderful place to visit this time of year, especially when it snows. The hill is one of the best places around to jump on a sled. The park transforms into a winter wonderland. The road leading to the top is lined with an enormous display of Christmas lights that will light up soul of even the most grinch-like fellow.

Candy Kitchen

The Candy Kitchen is another prime spot to visit during this holiday season. They have a vast amount of sugary snacks that can satiate any sweet tooth. You can watch as they make fresh candy canes by hand, or just grab one of their chocolate covered twinkies and old fashioned sodas as you are out celebrating the season.  

Santa-Spotting

Santa can be seen this time of the year. He’s not always hidden away at the North Pole. Wait for it to get dark and take a ride on highway sixty-seven. Make sure you take a right at the bridge as you leave Martinsville. As you drive, be sure to be on the look out for Santa. He is on the hillside by Bradford Woods.

Christmas Special

If you would rather stay cozied up in a bundle of blankets, there are still many ways to celebrate the holidays, even in indoors. Make some hot cocoa and turn the the television on to Freeform, previously ABC Family. You can jump in anytime to their 25 Days of Christmas special.
