Cut Your Own Christmas Tree and Other New Holiday Traditions!

Posted by Christa Peoples on Oct 3, 2017 9:38:28 AM

The most magical time of the year is approaching, and we all know what that means: decorating the Christmas tree, holiday parties, gift exchanges, eggnog for some and hot apple cider for others, horse-drawn wagon rides and sled-dog tours!

Kick off the holiday season with a few days of time spent together on some of the most memorable holiday traditions. These activities are things you can do just once... but we think it's pretty likely you will want to repeat them for years to come.
